The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from The Phoenix and the Turtle by William Shakespeare:|
Either was the other's mine.
Property was thus appall'd,
That the self was not the same;
Single nature's double name
Neither two nor one was call'd.
Reason, in itself confounded,
Saw division grow together;
To themselves yet either-neither,
Simple were so well compounded.
That it cried how true a twain
Seemeth this concordant one!
