    (Macbeth:) How does your patient, doctor?
    (Doctor:) Not so sick, my lord,
    As she is troubled with thick-coming fancies
    That keep her from her rest.
    (Macbeth:) Cure her of that!
    Canst thou not minister to a mind diseased,
    Pluck from the memory of a rooted sorrow,
    Raze out the written troubles of the brain,
    And with some sweet oblivious antidote
    Cleanse the stuffed bosom of the perilous stuff
    Which weighs upon the heart?
    (Doctor:) Therein the patient
    Must minister to himself.
    (Macbeth:) Throw physic to the dogs, I'll none of it!

Take a little rum
The less you take the better
Pour it in the lakes
Of Wener or of Wetter.
Dip a spoonful out
And mind you don't get groggy,
Pour it in the lake
Of Winnipissiogie.
Stir the mixture well
Lest it prove inferior,
Then put half a drop
Into Lake Superior.
Every other day
Take a drop in water,
You'll be better soon
Or at least you oughter.

So modern 'pothecaries, taught the art
By doctor's bills to play the doctor's part,
Bold in the practice of mistaken rules,
Prescribe, apply, and call their masters fools.
