My Favorite Revenge Quotes, Part I

Revenge is my favorite trope, no matter what the genre. It’s got to be justified, which is a whole other blog post, but as long as I can empathize with the antihero/heroine, I’m here for it.

Many of my favorite stories have revenge as a theme or element. My love for vigilante justice goes all the way back to watching The Crow while sleeping over my cousin’s. The aesthetic of the movie and graphic novel make my goth heart happy, but the concept of the crow choosing someone to bring back for revenge, for one night only, gives me warm tingles all the way down to my toes.

Here are some of my favorite revenge quotes. Follow me on Instagram for more!

“I’m a fighter. I believe in the eye-for-an-eye business. I’m no cheek turner. I got no respect for a man who won’t hit back. You kill my dog, you better hide your cat.”

-Muhammad Ali

“Revenge is a confession of pain.”

-Latin Proverb

“We should forgive our enemies, but not before they’re hanged.”

-Heinrich Heine

“When seeking revenge, dig two graves—one for yourself.”

-Douglas Horton

“An eye for an eye is never enough. Never, never, never.”

-Adrian Phoenix
