RESENTMENT
[ Also see Anger Animosity Discontent Envy Forgiveness Hatred Malice Offense Passion Quarrels Rage Rebellion Revenge ]

There is a spirit of resistance implanted by the Deity in the breast of man, proportioned to the size of the wrongs he is destined to endure.
      - Charles James Fox

Resentment is, in every stage of the passion, painful, but it is not disagreeable, unless in excess; pity is always painful, yet always agreeable; vanity, on the contrary, is always pleasant, yet always disagreeable.
      - Alexander Frederick Douglas-Home, Lord Home

Resentment gratifies him who intended an injury, and pains him unjustly who did not intend it.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Resentment is a union of sorrow with malignity; a combination of a passion which all endeavor to avoid with a passion which all concur to detest.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Resentment or grudges do no harm to the person against whom you hold these feelings but every day and every night of your life, they are eating at you.
      - Norman Vincent Peale

Resentment seems to have been given us by nature for defence, and for defence only; it is the safeguard of justice, and the security of innocence.
      - Adam Smith (1)
