INJURY
[ Also see Abuse Aches Cruelty Hatred Hurt Insolence Insult Justice Loss Meanness Mischief Offense Oppression Pain Revenge Scandal Slander Unkindness Wounds Wrong ]

Injuries may be forgiven, but not forgotten.
      - Aesop

The injuries we do and those we suffer are seldom weighed in the same scales.
      - Aesop

Lay silently the injuries you receive upon the altar of oblivion.
      - Hosea Ballou

If men wound you with injuries, meet them with patience; hasty words rankle the wound, soft language dresses it, forgiveness cures it, and oblivion takes away the scar. It is more noble by silence to avoid an injury by argument to overcome it.
      - Francis Beaumont

'Twas he
  Gave heat unto the injury, which returned
    Like a petard ill lighted, unto the bosom
      Of himn gave fire to it.
      - Francis Beaumont, Fair Maid of the Inn
         (act II)

It is better to receive than to do an injury.
  [Lat., Accipere quam facere injuiam praestat.]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        Tusculanarum Disputationum (V, 19)

Injuries accompanied with insults are never forgiven: all men, on these occasions, are good haters, and lay out their revenge at compound interest.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

No man is hurt but by himself.
      - Laertius Diogenes

The flea, though he kill none, he does all the harm he can.
      - Dr. John Donne

Slight small injuries, and they'll become none at all.
      - Thomas Fuller (1)

If the other person injures you, you may forget the injury; but if you injure him you will always remember.
      - Kahlil Gibran

Wit's an unruly engine, wildly striking
  Sometimes a friend, sometimes the engineer:
    Hast thou the knack? pamper it not with liking;
      But if thou want it, buy it not too deare
        Many affecting wit beyond their power,
          Have got to be a deare fool for an houre.
      - George Herbert, Temple--Church Porch
         (st. 41)

No man ever did a designed injury to another without doing a greater to himself.
      - Henry Home, Lord Kames

To deaden yourself against any hurt is to deaden yourself also against the hurt of others.
      - Max Lerner

If an injury has to be done to a man it should be so severe that his vengeance need not be feared.
      - Niccolo Machiavelli (Macchiavelli)

Have you ever been hurt and the place tries to heal a bit, and you just pull the scar off of it over and over again.
      - Rosa Parks

A strong sense of injury often gives point to the expression of our feelings.
  [Lat., Plerumque dolor etiam venustos facit.]
      - Pliny the Younger (Caius Caecilius Secundus),
        Epistles (III, 9)

He who has injured thee was either stronger or weaker. If weaker, spare him; if stronger, spare thyself.
  [Lat., Aut potentior te, aut imbecillior laesit: si imbecillior, barce ille; si potentior, tibi.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca), De Ira
         (III, 5)

To willful men, the injuries that they themselves procure must be their schoolmasters.
      - William Shakespeare

For 'tis the sport to have the enginer
  Hoist with his own petar, and 't shall go hard
    But I will delve one yard below their mines
      And blow them at the moon.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at III, iv)

There is no ghost so difficult to lay as the ghost of an injury.
      - Alexander Smith

As a Christian should do no injuries to others, so he should forgive the injuries that others do to him. It is to be like God, who is a good-giving God, and a sin-forgiving God.
      - Ralph Venning
