The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from The Reign of King Edward the Third by William Shakespeare:|
Nor half a halfpenny to shun grim death,
Since for to live is but to seek to die,
And dying but beginning of new life.
Let come the hour when he that rules it will!
To live or die I hold indifferent.
ACT IV. SCENE V. The same. The French Camp.
[Enter King John and Charles.]
A sudden darkness hath defaced the sky,
The winds are crept into their caves for fear,
