LIGHT ENERGY - KINDNESS
“The quality of mercy is not strained.
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the earth beneath.
It is twice blessed:
It blesseth him that gives and him that receives.
'Tis mightiest in the mightiest.
It becomes the thronèd monarch better
than his crown.
His scepter 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 sceptered sway.
It is enthronèd in the hearts of kings.
It is an attribute of God himself.
And earthly power doth then show likest God’s
When mercy seasons justice.
Therefore, Though justice be thy
plea, consider this-
That in the course of justice none of us would see salvation.
We do pray for mercy,
And that same prayer doth teach us all to render
The deeds of mercy.
I have spoke thus much to mitigate the
justice of thy plea,
Which if thou follow this strict court of Venice
Must needs give sentence 'gainst the merchant there.”
From 'The Merchant of Venice' -
