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:|
Ah spare, ah spare to shed my guiltless blood!
With this my bat will I beat out thy brains.
Down, down, I say, prostrate thy self upon the ground.
Then, Mucedorus, farewell; my hoped joys, farewell.
Yea, farewell life, and welcome present death!
To thee, O God, I yield my dying ghost.
