Thou most lying slave,
Whom stripes may move, not kindness, I have used thee,
Filth as thou art, with human care, and lodged thee
In mine own cell, till thou didst seek to violate
The honour of my child.

– William Shakespeare

The Tempest, Act 1, Scene 2. Prospero is unforgiving towards his slave Caliban for his attempt to violate his daughter Miranda. He calls him a piece of filth, but he did allow him to live in his Prospero’s own dwelling until he tried to rape his daughter. He tells Caliban that he only responds to whipping, not kindness.
