I am satisfied in nature, Whose motive, in this case, should stir me most To my revenge.

The use of “motive” is interesting here. I don’t know exactly to whom ”motive” belongs. To nature, it would seem. Nature’s motive SHOULD make him want to revenge himself but instead he is satisfied. It’s an artful qualifification, really. It’s a “yes” but it comes with a large caveat. It comes with – “Uh, sure, I accept your very public request for forgiveness, but I need you to recognize how thin this hair is – that nature is, to my mind, a lot closer to me and the opposite of forgiveness.”
Okay, but watch it.

Okay but you don’t deserve it.

Okay but it’s not natural.
