The best formula for revenge is success.
I don't believe in revenge. When people are bullies it's because of a deeper-rooted issue - either their family life is tough or they're being bullied by someone bigger than they are.
You have many choices. You can choose forgiveness over revenge, joy over despair. You can choose action over apathy..- Stephanie MarstonLetting your kids see u helping others and not expect anything in return can be contagious
A fool will seek revenge, the wise man will allow God's karma.
Love doesn't please itself by seeking revenge. Love sacrifices itself for the good of others.
Short attention span is the new avant-garde. Everyone complains that we can no longer intake huge chunks of text. I find that a reason to celebrate. It's something that has deep roots in modernism, stretching from the Futurists' use of typography to Pound's use of ideograms to concrete poetry. David Markson feels particularly relevant now. Twitter is the revenge of modernism.
The man who seeks revenge digs two graves.
A lot of horrible, unfair, untrue things have been said about me. I can only say that the best revenge is success.
Wit as an instrument of revenge is as infamous as art is as a means of sensual titillation.
— Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
In order to arouse sympathy, the aristocracy was obliged to lose sight, apparently, of its own interests, and to formulate its indictment against the bourgeoisie in the interest of the exploited working class alone. Thus, the aristocracy took their revenge by singing lampoons on their new masters and whispering in his ears sinister prophesies of coming catastrophe.
Forgiveness is too easy. I can forget by indifference, but not forgive. I prefer revenge.
I forget nothing and then, one day, there will be revenge. Innocence isn't exactly everywhere. But I will say innocence also takes you far in photography.
Last year they came in and won the game; that's how I would define it. Revenge is never on our mind. What's on our mind is playing defense, rebounding, taking care of the ball, and running our transition game.
Long memory, short fuse, big revenge.
Revenge. They took too much. You give up and die, or learn how to take back.
Success is the best revenge.
Living well eliminates the need for revenge.
No one rejoices more in revenge than woman.
It is but the weak and little mind that rejoices in revenge
Revenge is always the weak pleasure of a little and narrow mind.
Revenge, we find, the abject pleasure of an abject mind.
Revenge is sweeter than life itself. So think fools.
I'm thinking in my head I'd like to have five minutes alone with this guy to get some payback. But you got to keep a level head. You just got to get to the house, search, find anything you can to put these guys away and bring some justice and get some revenge for our brothers who were lost.
Many of you wished me dead. Many of you perhaps still do. But I hold no grudges and seek no revenge. I demand only this...that you join with me in building a new Rome, a Rome that offers justice, peace and land to all its citizens, not just the privileged few. Support me in this task, and old divisions will be forgotten. Oppose me, and Rome will not forgive you a second time. Senators, the war is over.
It was all about wanting to get revenge. Pathetic, really, but it still is the motivation.
Some children like to make castles out of their rice pudding, or faces with raisins for eyes. It is forbidden - so sternly that, when they grow up, they take a horrid revenge by dying meringues pale blue or baking birthday cakes in the form of horseshoes or lyres or whatnot.
If you put together all the ingredients that naturally attract children - sex, violence, revenge, spectacle and vigorous noise - what you have is grand opera.
No matter what someone else has done, it still matters how we treat people. It matters to our humanity that we treat offenders according to standards that we recognize as just. Justice is not revenge - it's deciding for a solution that is oriented towards peace, peace being the harder but more human way of reacting to injury. That is the very basis of the idea of rights.
If you are asking whether states and state actors can only respond through revenge, then you are suggesting that diplomatic solutions are hopeless.
I think maybe the destructive pleasure got turned into the destructive pleasure of war (something we see still in the images of US soldiers urinating on the dead bodies of Taliban soldiers). Something of the pleasure in destruction gets unleashed, and then becomes part of war effort rationalised first as revenge (or justice defined as revenge). But then it takes new forms, as we see now.
Revenge is the single most satisfying feeling in the world!
For madness must be punished in a world in which mere sanity is prized. The revenge of the ordinary upon the gifted.
The best revenge is living well without you.
You have to be okay with wins and losses. You can't just be looking for the wins and, when the losses happen, you can't buy more and more because you're sure it's going to bounce. We call that revenge trading.
There is no revenge so complete as forgiveness.
There is no passion of the human heart that promises so much and pays so little as revenge.
Revenge commonly hurts both the offerer and sufferer; as we see in a foolish bee, which in her anger invenometh the flesh and loseth her sting, and so lives a drone ever after.
If you look at revenge we are still winning three one you know, so I don't think it is a question of revenge, is a question of a personal thing
I forgive everyone. There's no reason to hold anything against someone. Revenge is over with.
I've always been interested in themes of memory, paranoia, and revenge.
