In act 3 sc 2, Shylock argues that a Jew is little different than a Christian. In the end both want revenge if they have been wronged.

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? If we are like you in the rest, we will resemble you in that. If a Jew wrong a Christian, what is his humility? Revenge.
