Vengeance

Hast thou received some grievous injury,
And seekest vengeance on thine enemy?
Then stay thy hand and smite him not, for know,
Revenge will surely harm him less than thee.

Revenge and wrong bring forth their kind.
—Percy Bysshe Shelley
Because we are enemies of others, they in their turn are our enemies.
—Annie Besant
In taking revenge, a man is but even with his enemy; but in passing it over, he is superior, for it is a prince's part to pardon.
—Francis Bacon
