O my 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. […] Here’s to my love! [drink the poison]
O true apothecary! Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die.
(Romeo: act V, scene III)
