More from The Merchant of Venice

The villany you teach me I will execute, and it shall go hard, but I will better the instruction.

Act 3, Scene 1

If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?

Act 3, Scene 1

The pound of flesh that I demand of him
Is dearly bought.

Shylock

Thus hath the candle singed the moth.

Portia: Act 2, Scene 9, Line 85

And I beseech you,
Wrest once the law to your authority,
To do a great right, do a little wrong,
And curb this cruel devil of his will.

Bassanio: Act 4, Scene 4, lines 221-225
