     Syn: To Avenge, Revenge.
  
     Usage: To avenge is to inflict punishment upon evil doers in
            behalf of ourselves, or others for whom we act; as, to
            avenge one's wrongs; to avenge the injuries of the
            suffering and innocent. It is to inflict pain for the
            sake of vindication, or retributive justice. To
            revenge is to inflict pain or injury for the
            indulgence of resentful and malicious feelings. The
            former may at times be a duty; the latter is one of
            the worst exhibitions of human character.
            [1913 Webster]
  
                  I avenge myself upon another, or I avenge
                  another, or I avenge a wrong. I revenge only
                  myself, and that upon another.    --C. J. Smith.
