” Well, we were born to die ” – Capulet, A3, S4, L4

Capulet is talking to Paris about the death of Tybalt while Juliet is up at her room. Capulet thinks that Juliet is very upset about Tybalt’s death so he is kind of reassuring not just Paris, but himself. I think he is meaning ‘Well we are all going to die eventually.’ It is also like saying that everything that has a start will have an end, which can refer to romeo and juliet’s happiness coming to an end which is also death.

An interesting word was born because that could mean being born or the start/beginning to something.
