Shakespeare on Blessing and Mercy

Today’s Lenten quote about blessing and mercy comes from Shakespeare.

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 [the one] that gives and [the one] that takes.
– William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice
