More from The Merchant of Venice

But mercy is above this sceptered sway;
It is enthroned in the hearts of kings,
It is an attribute of God himself.

Portia: Act 4, Scene 1, lines 199-201

If every ducat in six thousand ducats
Were in six parts, and every part a ducat
I would not draw them. I would have my bond.

Shylock: Act 4, Scene 1, lines 86-88

The Devil can cite scripture to suit his purpose.

You know me well, and herein spend but time
To wind about my love with circumstance
And out of doubt you do me now more wrong.

Antonio: Act 1, Scene 1, lines 160-163

Young in limbs, in judgement old.

Act II, sc. 7.
