Beware of the revenge of the provoked that refuses to act immediately

Great wars and damaging family feuds were not created by big calamity or cataclysmic event; they were created by simple,  repeated, inconsequential acts of perceived injustice and misunderstanding... where the guilty person thinks the other person is either for the taking or incapable of upsetting the odd...

In your home or country, watch out for those simple slights..those little annoyances and make amend quickly before the victim withdraw silently to his shell. Many people takes it for granted that the one who retreated after he was maltreated is a coward. Sometimes, taking advantage of such person even more and subsequently building a position of (false) advantage over the event.

While it is true some are indeed cowards and weak; it is from among such supposed cowards and weaklings that the seed of great enmity and discord is sown. When this seed is nurtured and watered adequately by the constant shower of injustice, they germinate, however slow, to become a thorny tree that come back to humble their sower or the generation that preceded  them.

Human beings are creatures if emotions.. never ever hurt someone emotions without making amend. A perceived  weak person's revenge is at the root of great man-made calamities.. no wonder, a sage once said: " he is not the Victor,  who vanquished and humiliate the weak: the real Victor is one who maintains deliberate control over his raging emotion.."

Beware of the revenge of the provoked that refuses to act immediately. History have recorded voluminous books where those who were once regarded underdogs and weakling have upset the giants in ways that changed the path of history forever- for better.. or for worse!

"For it must be noted, that men must either be caressed or else annihilated; they will revenge themselves for small injuries, but cannot do so for great ones; the injury therefore that we do to a man must be such that we need not fear his vengeance."---Niccolo Machiavelli
