    follows his own instructions.”

    twenty to follow mine own teaching.”

    devise laws for the blood, but a hot temper leaps
    o’er a cold decree.”
  6. #6
    “The quality of mercy is not strain’d,
    It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
    Upon the place beneath: it is twice blest;
    It blesseth him that gives and him that takes.”
