Live simply that others might simply live.
~ Elizabeth Ann Seton
A little bit of mercy makes the world less cold and more just.
Fire, water, and government know nothing of mercy.
Nature has no mercy at all. Nature says, "I'm going to snow. If you have on a bikini and no snowshoes, that's tough. I am going to snow anyway."
All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.
Love has its place, as does hate. Peace has its place, as does war. Mercy has its place, as do cruelty and revenge.
The unthankful heart... discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and, as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings!
Henry Ward Beecher
