Mercy Quotes

"I have always found that mercy bears richer fruits than strict justice."
Abraham Lincoln

"We shall show mercy, but we shall not ask for it"
Winston Churchill

"The quality of mercy is not strained; It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven Upon the place beneath. It is twice blessed- It blesseth him that gives, and him that takes."
William Shakespeare

"reward, gift; kindness, grace, pity," from Latin mercedem (nominative merces) "reward, wages, pay hire" (in Vulgar Latin "favor, pity"), from merx (genitive mercis) "wares, merchandise".
