Root, vines

Timon of Athens, [4.3.188-199]. Timon. “Ensnear thy fertile and conceptious womb,/ Let it no more bring out ingrateful man!/ Go great with tigers, dragons, wolves, and bears;/ Teem with new monsters, whom thy upward face/ Hath to the marbled mansion all above/ Never presented!” [finds a root.] “O, a root! Dear thanks!–/ Dry up thy marrows, vines, and plough-torn leas,/ Whereof ingrateful man, with liquorish draughts/ And morsels unctuous, greases his pure mind,/ That from it all consideration slips –” [enter Apemantus.] ” More man? Plague, plague!”
