Lewis B. Smedes Quotes: When You Give Up Vengeance Make Sure You

When You Give Up Vengeance, Make Sure You Are Not Giving Up On Justice. The Line Between The Two Is Faint, Unsteady, And Fine ... Vengeance Is Our Own Pleasure Of Seeing Someone Who Hurt Us Getting It Back And Then Some. Justice, On The Other Hand, Is Secure When Someone Pays A Fair Penalty For Wronging Another Even If The Injured Person Takes No Pleasure In The Transaction. Vengeance Is Personal Satisfaction. Justice Is Moral Accounting ... Human Forgiveness Does Not Do Away With Human Justice.
