Revenge is to be discouraged because- (i) it puts the law out of office; (ii) it is ignoble; ( iii) that which is past, is gone and irrevocable ; (iv) it ignores the weakness and selfishness of man's nature.
Revenge is- (i) most allowable when its supplies the defects of law ,(ii) noble when it is taken openly.

Revenge keeps one's own wound green.
