    Why, such is love's transgression.

    Griefs of mine own lie heavy in my breast,

    Which thou wilt propagate, to have it pressed

    With more of thine. This love that thou hast shown

    Doth add more grief to too much of mine own.

    Love is a smoke raised with the fume of sighs;

    Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers' eyes;

    Being vexed, a sea nourished with loving tears.

    What is it else? A madness most discreet,

    A choking gall, and a preserving sweet.

    Farewell, my coz.

    means:

    Yes, this is what love does. My sadness sits heavy in my chest, and you want to add your own sadness to mine so there's even more. I have too much sadness already, and now you're going to make me sadder by feeling sorry for you. Here's what love is: a smoke made out of lovers' sighs. When the smoke clears, love is a fire burning in your lover's eyes. If you frustrate love, you get an ocean made out of lovers' tears. What else is love? It's a wise form of madness. It's a sweet lozenge that you choke on. Goodbye, cousin.

    I can't remember exact lines but I believe Act 1 Scene i. or Scene ii.

    There is a part were he is talking about wanting her back.
