William Shakespeare

When all thy mercies, O my God, My rising soul surveys, Transported with the view I'm lost, In wonder, love and praise.
Joseph Addison

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.
William Shakespeare

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

Have mercy upon us miserable sinners.
Book of Common Prayer

Mercy to him that shows it, is the rule.
William Cowper

And shut the gates of mercy on mankind.
Thomas Gray

A sentinel angel sitting high in glory Heard this shrill wail ring out from Purgatory: "Have mercy, mighty angel, hear my story!"
John Hay

To hide the fault I see: That mercy I to others show, That mercy show to me.
Alexander Pope

We do pray for mercy, And that same prayer doth teach us all to render The deeds of mercy.
William Shakespeare

Mercy often inflicts death.
Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

Whereto serves mercy But to confront the visage of offense?
William Shakespeare

Mercy among the virtues is like the moon among the stars ... It is the light that hovers above the judgment seat.
Edwin Hubbel Chapin

Teach me to feel another's woe, To hide the fault I see: That mercy I to others show, That mercy show to me.
Alexander Pope

Open thy gate of mercy, gracious God, My soul flies through these wounds to seek out thee.
William Shakespeare

'Tis vain to flee; till gentle Mercy show Her better eye, the farther off we go, The swing of Justice deals the mightier blow.
Francis Quarles

Think not the good, The gentle deeds of mercy thou hast done, Shall die forgotten all; the poor, the prisoner, The fatherless, the friendless, and the widow, Who daily owe the bounty of thy hand, Shall cry to Heaven, and pull a blessing on thee.
Nicholas Rowe

The mercy that was quick in us but late, By your own counsel is suppressed and killed. You must not dare for shame to talk of mercy; For your own reasons turn into your bosoms As dogs upon their masters, worrying you.
William Shakespeare

They are immobile and voiceless, and cannot ask for the mercy of water, those trapped caged house plants. In the winter they feel no breeze nor are they touched by a hand which frees.
O Anna Niemus

Mercy is not itself, that oft looks so; Pardon is still the nurse of second woe.
William Shakespeare

Who will not mercie unto others show, How can he mercie ever hope to have?
Edmund Spenser

It is noble to grant life to the vanquished.

Sweet Mercy! to the gates of Heaven This minstrel lead, his sins forgiven; The rueful conflict, the heart riven With vain endeavour, And memory of earth's bitter leaven Effaced forever.
William Wordsworth

Mercy but murders, pardoning those that kill.
William Shakespeare

Hate shuts her soul when dove-eyed mercy pleads.
Charles Sprague

Kerry Ellison, your name sounds like Kyrie Eleison* *Kyrie Eleison means God have mercy in Greek.
Jack Gilcrest

How can we speak of right and justice if we take an innocent creature and shed its blood? How can we pray to God for mercy if we ourselves have no mercy? Nobel laureate in literature.
Isaac Bashevis Singer

Sweet mercy is nobility's true badge.
William Shakespeare
