Revenge

Let me tell you something, you humans, most of you, subscribe to this policy of an eye for an eye, a life for a life
which is known throughout the universe for its stupidity. Even your Buddha and your Christ have quite a different vision
but nobody's paid much attention to them, not even the Buddhists or the Christians.

You humans... sometimes it's hard to imagine how you've made it this far.

"An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind."
Gandhi


to err is human, to forgive divine

"How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours."
from the Sufi

"Intolerance is evidence of impotence."
Aleister Crowley

"Live well. It is the greatest revenge."
The Talmud

"An unbridled passion for the total elimination of this or that evil can be as dangerous as any delusions of our time.
Richard Hofstadter

If you are looking for vengeance, be sure to dig two graves.
Chinese saying

"To be angry about trifles is mean and childish; to rage and be furious is brutish; and to maintain perpetual wrath is akin to the practice and temper of devils;
but to prevent and suppress rising resentment is wise and glorious, is manly and divine."
Alan Watts

"To be wronged is nothing unless you continue to remember it."
Confucius

"When anger rises, think of the consequences."
Confucius

"Nothing inspires forgiveness quite like revenge."
Scott Adams

"There is no revenge so complete as forgiveness."
John Billings

"Revenge is often like biting a dog because the dog bit you."
Austin O'Malley

How about how good it feels to finally forgive you
Alanis Morissette

"Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else;
you are the one who gets burned."
Buddha

"In the practice of tolerance, one's enemy is the best teacher."
Tenzin Gyatso

"Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names."
JFK
