In reply to Alan Somerset's query - Hello, Alan! It's Giovanni in Webster's

Best wishes,

Those lines loosely allude to Lady Macbeth's speech in Act I, scene vii:

               I have given suck, and know
How tender 'tis to love the babe that milks me;
I would, while it was smiling in my face,
Have plucked my nipple from his boneless gums,
And dashed his brains out, had I so sworn as you
Have done to this [murder of Duncan].
