"There is thy gold, worse poison to mens souls doing more murther in this loathesome world, then these poor compounds that thou may'st not sell I sell the poison, thou hast sold me none. Farewel, buy food, and get thee into flesh. Come cordial, and not poison, go with me to Juliets grave, for there must I use thee."
