    This is from a play called measure for measure. It is said by the duke.

    Be absolute for death: either deaths or life
    Shall thereby be the sweeter

    I found this on a website for the meaning of the quote :
    The Duke’s logic is sound but cold. If Claudio is ready for death, its sting will be lessened, and if he is reprieved, life will taste all the sweeter. Still, it’s possibly not the comforting words Claudio would have been expecting from a man of the cloth on the eve of his execution.

    Hope this helps
