  • It goes like this....


    If you prick us do we not bleed? If you tickle us do we not laugh? If you poison us do we not die? And if you wrong us shall we not revenge?

  • Yep like the others said...it's Shylock who says it in "The Merchant Of Venice" and he is a Jew (at the time and the time frame of the play Jews, sadly, were viewed very badly). In this speech, Shylock is trying to say that Jews are humans like everyone else.
