    Mercy Quotes

    Quotations about Mercy

    • We shall show mercy, but we shall not ask for it.
      speech in the House of Commons, July 14, 1940, by Sir Winston Churchill
    • Cowards are cruel, but the brave Love mercy, and delight to save.
    • I have always found that mercy bears richer fruits than strict justice.
      speech in Washington D.C., 1865, by Abraham Lincoln
    • Nothing emboldens sin so much as mercy.
    • The quality of mercy is not strain'd, It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven Upon the place beneath. It is twice blest: It blesseth him that gives and him that takes. 'T is mightiest in the mightiest: it becomes The throned monarch better than his crown; His sceptre shows the force of temporal power, The attribute to awe and majesty, Wherein doth sit the dread and fear of kings; But mercy is above this sceptred sway, It is enthroned in the hearts of kings, It is an attribute to God himself; And earthly power doth then show likest God's, When mercy seasons justice. Therefore, Jew, Though justice be thy plea, consider this, That in the course of justice none of us Should see salvation: we do pray for mercy; And that same prayer doth teach us all to render The deeds of mercy.
      "The Merchant of Venice", Act 4 scene 1, by William Shakespeare
    • Sweet mercy is nobility's true badge.
      "Titus Andronicus", Act 1 scene 2, by William Shakespeare
