I have ventured, Like little wanton boys that swim on bladders, This many summers in a sea of glory, But far beyond my depth. My high-blown pride At length broke under me, and now has left me, Weary and old with service, to the mercy Of a rude stream that must for ever hide me. We do pray for mercy, and that same prayer doth teach us all to render the deeds of mercy. To kill, I grant, is sin's extremest gust; But, in defence, by mercy, 'tis most just. There is no more mercy in him than there is milk in a male tiger.
The king-becoming graces, As justice, verity, temp'rance, stableness, Bounty, perseverance, mercy, lowliness, Devotion, patience, courage, fortitude, I have no relish of them, but abound In the division of each several crime, Acting in many ways. There is a devilish mercy in the judge, if you'll implore it, that will free your life, but fetter you till death. Mercy is not itself, that oft looks so; Pardon is still the nurse of second woe. Though justice be thy plea consider this, that in the course of justice none of us should see salvation.
