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...
