The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from Cromwell by William Shakespeare:|
That ever Bedford shall possess again.--
Well, Lords, I fear, when this man is dead,
You'll wish in vain that Cromwell had a head.
[Enter one with Cromwell's head.]
Here is the head of the deceased Cromwell.
Pray thee, go hence, and bear his head away
Unto his body; inter them both in clay.
[Enter Sir Ralph Sadler.]
