Romeo and Juliet

"Virtue itself turns vice being misapplied,/ And vice sometime's by action dignified"

How far can this statement be applied to the actions of the characters in Romeo and Juliet?

The Friar is saying that all things have the potential to help or harm a situation. He reflects on this as he collects medicinal herbs that must be taken in the right amounts. Romeo and Juliet must moderate their "love". Love and passion unchecked could harm them.
