Revenge

When you kill one enemy, you then must plan for the one hundred enemies you have now created. No enemy ever stands alone. He comes with a mother and father, brothers and sisters. He has a wife and children, friends and neighbors. When you kill this enemy, you must be ready to face the angry revenge that comes from the grief of this loss for all the people who knew and loved this man. The only way to stop this endless chain of enemy killing enemy is to forgive it. And in doing so, teach each one that life is the most important, precious and valuable thing.
Anwarshah Anwary


There is no revenge so complete as forgiveness.
Josh Billings


In taking revenge, a man is but even with his enemy; but in passing it over, he is superior.
Sir Francis Bacon


Live well. It is the greatest revenge.
The Talmud


Revenge is a kind of wild justice, which the more man's nature runs to the more ought law to weed it out.
Sir Francis Bacon


Nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral questions of our time; the need for mankind to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to oppression and violence. Mankind must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.
Martin Luther King Jr.


Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.
Confucious


Little, vicious minds abound with anger and revenge, and are incapable of feeling the pleasure of forgiving their enemies.
Earl of Chesterfield
