An eye for an eye would make the whole world blind.
Mahatma Gandhi
And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life, Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, Burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe
Bible
It is a revenge the devil sometimes takes upon the virtuous, that he entraps them by the force of the very passion they have suppressed and think themselves superior to.
George Santayana
Justice belongs to those who claim it, but let the claimant beware lest he create new injustice by his claim and thus set the bloody pendulum of revenge into its inexorable motion
Frank Herbert
Revenge is a much more punctual paymaster than gratitude
Charles Caleb Colton
Revenge is an act of passion; vengeance of justice. Injuries are revenged; crimes are avenged.
Samuel Johnson
Revenge is profitable, gratitude is expensive
Edward Gibbon
Revenge... is like a rolling stone, which, when a man hath forced up a hill, will return upon him with a greater violence, and break those bones whose sinews gave it motion.
Albert Schweitzer
Since we cannot match it let us take our revenge by abusing it.
Michel de Montaigne
There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state to another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must have felt what it is to die, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life.
Alexandre Dumas
There is no revenge so complete as forgiveness.
Josh Billings
There's small Revenge in Words, but Words may be greatly revenged
Benjamin Franklin
Therein lies the defect of revenge: it's all in the anticipation; the thing itself is a pain, not a pleasure; at least the pain is the biggest end of it.
Mark Twain
You are not permitted to kill a woman who has injured you, but nothing forbids you to reflect that she is growing older every minute. You are avenged 1440 times a day.
Ambrose Bierce
