A Quote by Kare Anderson on anger, resentment, revenge, and peace

Holding onto your anger is like clutching a vibrating pole. The harder you clench, the more every part of your being vibrates in reaction.

A Quote by Michael Jackson, 1940 on writing, academic writing, authorial will, arcane writing, and revenge

On Academic Writing:

"The more passive one's life in the field, the greater the need to reverse the situation when one returns home, which is why the arcane and authoratative character of academic writing may be seen, to some extent, as a vengeful reaction to the inertia, uneventfulness, and waiting one had to endure as a guest at someone else's banquet. A way of redressing an existental imbalance, as it were-- reclaiming authorial will by superimposing one's own meaning on theirs...

A Quote by unknown on direction, revenge, and time

Revenge is like a boomerang. Although for a time it flies in the direction in which it is hurled, it takes a sudden curve, and returning hits your own head the heaviest blow of all.

A Quote by Oliver Stone on fighting, good, hell, listening, men, and revenge

Crom, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you, will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we fought, and why we died. All that matters is that today, two stood against many. Valour pleases you, so grant me this one request. Grant me revenge! And if you do not listen, the HELL with you!
(co-written by Robert E. Howard, John Milius, Frank Summer)

A Quote by Thomas Dreier on affection, hatred, love, magic, and revenge

It is better to give love. Hatred is a low and degrading motion and is so poisonous that no man is strong enough to use it safely. The hatred we think we are directing against some person or thing or system has a devilish way of turning back upon us. When we seek revenge we administer slow poison to ourselves. When we administer affection it is astonishing what magical results we obtain.
