  • Such mortal drugs I have; but Mantua's law
    Is death to any he that utters them.
  • Romeo. Come hither, man. I see that thou art poor:
    Hold, there is forty ducats: let me have
    A dram of poison, such soon-speeding gear
    As will disperse itself through all the veins
    That the life-weary taker may fall dead
    And that the trunk may be discharged of breath
    As violently as hasty powder fired
    Doth hurry from the fatal cannon's womb.

    Apothecary. Such mortal drugs I have; but Mantua's law
    Is death to any he that utters them.

  • Romeo. Art thou so bare and full of wretchedness,
    And fear'st to die? famine is in thy cheeks,

    Apothecary. My poverty, but not my will, consents.

4 V, 1, 2888

  • Put this in any liquid thing you will,
    And drink it off; and, if you had the strength
    Of twenty men, it would dispatch you straight.
  • Romeo. I pay thy poverty, and not thy will.

    Apothecary. Put this in any liquid thing you will,
    And drink it off; and, if you had the strength
    Of twenty men, it would dispatch you straight.
