Identical components on Delphi form?

How can I change the caption of several labels at the same time, after entering something in an edit-box? Of course, I can do it as follows:

Label1.Caption := Edit1.text;
Label2.Caption := Edit1.text;
// and so on...

But can't I do this by putting the SAME label several times on the Delphi form? Because otherwise, if I want to change the text at 100 places at the same moment, I have to write 100 lines of code. So the question is: can there be two exactly identical components on a form?
