The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from Songs of Innocence and Experience by William Blake:|
When wolves and tigers howl for prey,
They pitying stand and weep;
Seeking to drive their thirst away,

And there the lion's ruddy eyes
Shall flow with tears of gold:
And pitying the tender cries,
Songs of Innocence and Experience
