  20. 20. This is a beautiful play by William Shakespeare that shows us how true love is stronger than anything, no matter the obstacles and adversities. Although Romeo and Juliet couldn’t be together in the end, they at least had the satisfaction of dying together knowing that they did everything they could to fulfill the immense passion they shared.
