William Shakespeare. (1564–1616) (continued)
 
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 iv. Sc. 1.

    A Daniel come to judgment! yea, a Daniel!

Now, infidel, I have you on the hip.

    I thank thee, Jew, for teaching me that word.
          The Merchant of Venice. Act iv. Sc. 1.

    You take my house when you do take the prop
That doth sustain my house; you take my life
When you do take the means whereby I live.

697
    How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank!
Here we will sit and let the sounds of music
Creep in our ears: soft stillness and the night
Become the touches of sweet harmony.
Sit, Jessica. Look how the floor of heaven
Is thick inlaid with patines of bright gold:
There ’s not the smallest orb which thou behold’st
But in his motion like an angel sings,
Still quiring to the young-eyed cherubins.
Such harmony is in immortal souls;
But whilst this muddy vesture of decay
Doth grossly close it in, we cannot hear it.
          The Merchant of Venice. Act. v. Sc. 1.
698
    I am never merry when I hear sweet music.
          The Merchant of Venice. Act. v. Sc. 1.
