Flashcards in The Merchant of Venice Deck (10):

Portia mercy

The quality of mercy is not strain'd
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath


Shylock leaving

I pray you give me leave to go from hence
I am not well


Lead casket

Who chooseth me must give + hazard all he hath


Antonio wanting death

I am a tainted wether of the flock
Meetest for death


Shylock a1 s3 to Antonio when lending money

You call me misbeliever, cut-throat dog,
And spit upon my Jewish gaberdine


Shylock Soliloquy

I hate him for he is a Christian

He lends out money gratis, and brings down
The rate of usance (here with us in Venice)

If I can catch him once upon the hip
I will feed fat the ancient grudge I bear him

Cursed be my tribe
If I forgive him


Antonio's melancholy (a1)

In sooth I know not why I am so sad

I hold the world but as the world Gratanio,
A stage where every man must play a part
And mine a sad one


Bassanio to Antonio (a1)

To you, Antonio, I owe the most,
in money and in love


Antonio's generosity

My purse, my person, my extremist means,
Lie all unlocked to your occasion
