Mercy
 
  As freely as the firmament embraces the world, so mercy must encircle friend and foe.
            —Friedrich von Schiller
  1
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
  2
  Mercy is like a rainbow, we must never look for it after dark.
            —Samuel Squire
