Whose sale is present death in Mantua,
Who calls so loud ?
Ap. Such mortal drugs I have; but Mantua's law Is death to any he that utters them.
Rom. Art thou so bare, and full of wretchedness,
Ap. My poverty, but not my will, consents.
Ap. Put this in any liqnid thing you will,
Rom. There is thy gold, worse poison to men's
souls, Doing more murders in this loathsome world, Than these poor compounds that thou mayst not sell: I sell thee poison, thou hast sold me none. Farewell; buy food, and get thyself in flesh,
THE CONTEST OF ROMEO AND PARIS. Par. Stop thy unhallow'd toil, vile Montague; Can vengeance

Par. I do defy thy conjurations, And do attach thee as a felon here. Rom. Wilt thou provoke me? then have at thee, boy.

ROMEO'S LAST SPEECH OVER JULIET IN THE TOMB.
love! my wife! Death that hath suck'd the honey of thy breath, Hath had no power yet upon thy beauty : Thou art not conquer'd; beauty's ensign yet Is crimson in thy lips, and in thy cheeks, And death's pale flag is not advanced there.Tybalt, liest thou there in thy bloody-sheet? 0, what more favour can I do to thee, Than with that hand that cut thy youth in twain, To sunder his that was thine enemy? Forgive me, cousin !-Ah, dear Juliet, Why art thou yet so fair? Shall I believe That unsubstantial death is amorous ; And that the lean abhorred monster keeps Thee here in dark to be his paramour ?

We are born to do benefits: and what better or properer can we call our own, than the riches of our friends? 0, what a precious comfort 'tis, to have so many, like brothers, commanding one another's fortunes!
A FAITHFUL STEWARD. So the gods bless me, When all our officest have been oppress'd * Pictures have no hypocrisy; they are what they profess to be.
