If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?
– Percy Bysshe Shelley, Ode to the West Wind
April 23 traditionally marks William Shakespeare’s birthday. Belatedly, from Romeo and Juliet, one of my favorite passages.

The quality of mercy is not strained;
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.
William Shakespeare, Merchant of Venice
