I’m just starting to get into the TV series Revenge.
The show got me thinking about idioms and sayings we have in English about the act of vengeance. I explain a few of them below. Which one best reflects how you feel about revenge?
“Revenge is sweet.”
Revenge is pleasurable. It feels good to get back at someone.
“Revenge is a dish best served cold.”
It is very satisfying to delay your revenge. After someone betrays you, it’s better to wait a long time to retaliate, rather than react immediately.
“Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.” ~Confucius
