Famous quotes containing the words love and, mercy and/or love:

    ‘Tis a barbarous temper, and a sign of a very ill nature, to take delight in shocking any one: and, on the contrary, it is the mark of an amiable and a beneficent temper, to say all the kind things one can, without flattery or playing the hypocrite,—and what never fails of procuring the love and esteem of every one; which, next to doing good to a deserving object who wants it, is one of the greatest pleasures of this life.
    Samuel Richardson (1689–1761)

    God is not Love in the East. He is Power, although Mercy may temper it.
    —E.M. (Edward Morgan)

    We’ve got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can’t just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it’s going to get on by itself. You’ve got to keep watering it. You’ve got to really look after it and nurture it.
    John Lennon (1940–1980)
