The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from Cromwell by William Shakespeare:|
The service of the state, than of my house.
I look upon thee with a loving eye,
That one day will prefer thy destiny.
Sir, the Lords be at hand.
They are welcome; bid Cromwell straight attend us,
And look you all things be in perfect readiness.
[The Music plays. Enter Cardinal Wolsey, Sir Thomas
More and Gardiner.]
