Here are some good examples of revenge in the novel:

He [Hindley] has been blaming our father (how dared he?) for treating H. [Heathcliff] too liberally; and swears he will reduce him to his right place.(3.30)

So, from the very beginning, he bred bad feeling in the house; and at Mrs. Earnshaw's death, which happened in less than two years after, the young master had learned to regard his father as an oppressor rather than a friend, and Heathcliff as a usurper of his parent's affections and his privileges; and he grew bitter with brooding over these injuries. (5.55)

[. . .] they forgot everything the minute they were together again: at least the minute they had contrived some naughty plan of revenge. (6.11)
