The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare:|
And frame your mind to mirth and merriment,
Which bars a thousand harms and lengthens life.
Marry, I will; let them play it. Is not a commonty a
Christmas gambold or a tumbling-trick?
No, my good lord; it is more pleasing stuff.
What! household stuff?
It is a kind of history.
