Insults should be well avenged or well endured.
— Scottish Proverbs

It is often better not to see an insult than to avenge it.
Marcus Annaeus Seneca Seneca The Elder avenging quote

The best manner of avenging ourselves is by not resembling him who has injured us.
— Jane Porter

The highways are crowded with people who drive as if their sole purpose in getting behind the wheel is to avenge every wrong done them by man, beast or fate. The only thing that keeps them in line is their fear of death, jail and lawsuits.
— Hunter S. Thompson

If I advance, follow me! If I retreat, kill me! If I die, avenge me!
— avenging quotation by Francois de la Rochefoucauld
