    Pride is stronger, it is the driving force behind most revenges.That also explain the lack of love. Nobody wants to be selfless anymore.

      Kindness is now misinterpreted as weakness, thus opening us up at our most vulnerable time, to predators. Such us the new reality of our new generation. Is it any wonder, Lisette, that selflessness is waning, and being replaced by selfishness. Sigh.

    I think it depends on the person who has the revenge and/or  pride, but also each "incident"/circumstance/cause of either.

      Each thing, in turn, by each thing, in time.

    Revenge is not as strong because it is usually driven by a negative thought. Pride is stronger because it is usually driven by a positive thought.

      Negative thought is the usual association with revenge, yes, but what if the revenge itself is in response to bring wronged? I am a father and if my children were violated or harmed and the offender got
      Off on a loophole is revenge then justifiable?

    Pride in who you are is stronger because it shows that you respect yourself and what you believe in. Revenge shows how weak a person is.

      Hi Renee
      You mean, I assume, inwardly.  When revenge is manifested outwardly and becomes known, it no longer is revenge... It's just plain psycho. For revenge to be effective shouldn't it remain private, which itself takes strength, no?

      Pride begins within as revenge does. It begins with a feeling about yourself and how you want to express that feeling.Revenge is still revenge when acted on. I don't think it shows strength because you focus on the other party, not yourself.
