The quality of mercy is not strained It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven Upon the place beneath. It is twice blessed- It blesseth him that gives, and him that takes.

William Shakespeare

1564-1616 was an English poet, playwright and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's greatest dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon". His extant works, including collaborations, consist of approximately 37 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and a few other verses, some of uncertain authorship. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.

Die Güte der Barmherzigkeit ist nicht angespannt, sie sinkt, wenn der sanfte Regen vom Himmel auf die Stelle darunter fällt. es ist zweimal gesegnet - es segnet den, der gibt, und den, der nimmt.

La calidad de la misericordia no es tensa, sino que cae como la suave lluvia del cielo sobre el lugar debajo. es dos veces bendecido: bendiga al que da, y al que toma.

憐憫的品質並沒有緊張,因為天上的溫柔雨水落在了下面的地方。這是兩次祝福 - 它給予了他所帶來的和他所帶來的。
