- Robert Burns







"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 blesses him that gives and him that takes:

'Tis mightiest in the mightiest, it becomes the 

throned monarch better than his crown,

His scepter 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 scepter'd 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."


William Shakespeare.


"Forgive and get over it but never forget who did what."
