Stupid Quote

I have always found that mercy bears richer fruits than strict justice.
-President Abraham Lincoln

Interesting quote from a great man. When Lincoln was Commander-in-Chief of the Union Army, the penalty for desertion was death, sometimes amended to branding deserters with a hot iron on the face. That's a very strange kind of mercy.
