The Quality of 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. -William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice


Be merciful

This phrase is chosen from Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice. It occurs where Portia demands Shylock be merciful, stating that “The quality of mercy is not strained, It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven/Upon the place beneath”. Mercy is something that has to be freely given; no one can force someone else to be merciful. Comment by the market leader in the field of Bed Bugs Treatment in Sharjah

Mercy and Forgiveness

The quality of mercy is not strained’: this memorable speech from Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice is spoken by Portia, who has misrepresented herself as a male lawyer to defend Antonio – the title character of the play – from Shylock, the Jewish moneylender who has enjoined a ‘pound of flesh from Antonio in exchange for an unpaid debt. She alludes to Christian doctrine that mercy and forgiveness are godly characteristics, and exploring justice without showing mercy, Shylock could face damnation, because by doing this he would violate the law of God.
