Measure For Measure

By William Shakespeare

QUOTATION: O, it is excellent
To have a giant’s strength; but it is tyrannous
To use it like a giant.
ATTRIBUTION: William Shakespeare (1564–1616), British dramatist, poet. Isabella, in Measure for Measure, act 2, sc. 2, l. 107-9.

QUOTATION: Under your good correction, I have seen
When, after execution, judgment hath
Repented o’er his doom.
ATTRIBUTION: William Shakespeare (1564–1616), British dramatist, poet. Provost, in Measure for Measure, act 2, sc. 2, l. 10-2.

QUOTATION: Ignominy in ransom and free pardon
Are of two houses; lawful mercy
Is nothing kin to foul redemption.
ATTRIBUTION: William Shakespeare (1564–1616), British dramatist, poet. Isabella, in Measure for Measure, act 2, sc. 4, l. 112-4.

QUOTATION: It oft falls out,
To have what we would have, we speak not what we mean.

Or seem so, craftily; and that’s not good.

QUOTATION: Yes, I do think that you might pardon him,
And neither heaven nor man grieve at the mercy.
ATTRIBUTION: William Shakespeare (1564–1616), British dramatist, poet. Isabella, in Measure for Measure, act 2, sc. 2, l. 49-50.

Like doth quit like, and measure still for measure.
ATTRIBUTION: William Shakespeare (1564–1616), British dramatist, poet. Duke, in Measure for Measure, act 5, sc. 1, l. 410-1.

QUOTATION: Alack, when once our grace we have forgot,
Nothing goes right; we would, and we would not.
