Famous Mercy Quotes in English

Nothing emboldens sin so much as mercy.

- Mercy Quotes by William Shakespeare

Sweet mercy is nobility's true badge.

- Mercy Quotes by William Shakespeare Quotes

I have always found that mercy bears richer fruits than strict justice.

- Mercy Quotes by Abraham Lincoln

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.

- Mercy Quotes William Shakespeare

Cowards are cruel, but the brave
Love mercy, and delight to save.

- Mercy Quotes by John Gay

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

- Mercy Quotes by Sir Winston Churchill
