Too Long A Sacrifice

Too long a sacrifice can make a stone of the heart
O, when may it be suffice ? 
William Butler Yeats

"What I want is mercy, not sacrifice" 
Book of Hosea

"I will give them a single heart and I will put a new spirit in them; 
I will remove the heart of stone from their bodies and
give them a heart of flesh instead,

so that they will keep my laws and respect
my observances and put them into practice.
Then they shall be my people and
I will be their God.”"
