Revenge Quotes


In seeking justice, we often consider revenge the ultimate form of justice. But is it? Some of the great minds in history have tackled this very subject, including Francis Bacon who offered, “In taking revenge, a man is but even with his enemy; but in passing it over, he is superior.” It is truly one of the great revenge quotes, as is Ivana Trump’s, “Looking good is the best revenge.” Perhaps it is. Few would argue in revenge quotes that while getting one’s revenge feels good at the time, it does indeed, as Bacon inferred, take us down to their level, or worse, below them. And in that case, in the end, who truly gets their revenge? Reference.com Definition of Revenge
