C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Resentment
 
  Resentment gratifies him who intended an injury, and pains him unjustly who did not intend it.
Johnson.    
  1
  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.
C. J. Fox.    
  2
  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.    
  3
  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.
Johnson.    
  4
  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.
