Not to take Revenge.  There are so many subtle sorts of revenge that one who has occasion to take revenge can really do or omit to do what he likes.  In any case, the whole world will agree, after a time, that he has avenged himself.  Hence the avoidance of revenge is hardly within man's power.  He must not even so much as say that he does not want to do so, since the contempt for revenge is interpreted and felt as a sublime and exquisite form of revenge.  It follows that we must do nothing superfluous.
