Socrates on Revenge

“One who is injured ought not to return the injury, for on no account can it be right to do an injustice; and it is not right to return an injury, or to do evil to any man, however much we have suffered from him.”

~ Socrates

William Shakespeare

” … for pleasure and revenge
Have ears more deaf than adders to the voice
Of any true decision.”

~ William Shakespeare

Ellis on Retribution

Well all the time you spend trying to get back what’s been took from you, more is going out the door. After a while you just have to try to get a tourniquet on it.”

~ Ellis / No Country For Old Men
