Famous quotes containing the words prerogative and/or mercy:

    Universal empire is the prerogative of a writer. His concerns are with all mankind, and though he cannot command their obedience, he can assign them their duty. The Republic of Letters is more ancient than monarchy, and of far higher character in the world than the vassal court of Britain.
    Thomas Paine (1737–1809)

    A potent quack, long versed in human ills,
    Who first insults the victim whom he kills;
    Whose murd’rous hand a drowsy bench protect,
    And whose most tender mercy is neglect.
    George Crabbe (1754–1832)
