My doctrine is this, that if we see cruelty or wrong that we have the power to stop, and do nothing, we make ourselves sharers in the guilt.
      - Anna Sewell

A stony adversary, an inhuman wretch,
  Uncapable of pity, void and empty
    From any dram of mercy.
      - William Shakespeare

I must be cruel only to be kind.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at III, iv)

See what a rent the envious Casca made.
      - William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
         (Antony at III, ii)

Men so noble,
  However faulty, yet should find respect
    For what they have been: 'tis a cruelty
      To load a falling man.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life of King Henry the Eighth
         (Cromwell at V, iii)

And you, enchantment,
  Worthy enough a herdsman--yea, him too,
    That makes himself, but for our honor therein,
      Unworthy thee-if ever henceforth thou
        These rural latches to his entrance open,
          Or hoop his body more with thy embraces,
            I will devise a death as cruel for thee
              As thou art tender to't.
      - William Shakespeare, The Winter's Tale
         (Polixenes at IV, iv)

Lady, you are the cruell'st she alive
  If you will these graces to the grave,
    And leave the world no copy.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Viola at I, v)

Cruelty must be whitewashed by a moral excuse, and pretense of reluctance.
      - George Bernard Shaw

Much more may a judge overweigh himself in cruelty than in clemency.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)

When we think of cruelty, we must try to remember the stupidity, the envy, the frustration from which it has arisen.
      - Edith Sitwell

Inhumanity is caught from man,
  From smiling man.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night V, l. 158)
