This quote from Shakespeare's MACBETH is most apt for AAB as he has to fight off challengers from within and without his own party.
It would have been the easiest thing to resign and just leave the nation to others who may be more inclined to use force to stay in power. Don't forget we still have all those draconian laws that hang over all Malaysians.
Malaysia in entering a critical phase of political development and I feel AAB should be allowed to lead the nation; pending the results of the state elections in Sarawak.
Meanwhile he can take courage from Shakespeare's emphasis on the need for courage. He uses a "double" idea - screw your courage and put your courage on the sticking place. AAB needs to be courageous, firm and fair.
As it may be his last term in office, he should do the things that are correct in his heart and his conscience. Forget about past niceties and do the right thing.
