The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from The Lamentable Tragedy of Locrine and Mucedorus by William Shakespeare:|
I tell you the shepherd's bastard shall be well kept;
I'll look to it myself else; but I pray you, come away
Then you will not tell me whether you have banished
him or no?
Why, I cannot say banishment, and you would give me
a thousand pounds to say so.
