Upon embarking upon a path of revenge, Confucius warns that one should dig two graves. Confucius was right. The second of the two graves was meant for me. I was only saved by my father's infinite love. I know now that revenge only brings darkness. I couldn't see the light until I considered my father's advice to try and forgive. It's not easy but my father once said that nothing worth doing ever is. Well, with one exception.

The greatest weapon anyone can use against us is our own mind. By preying on the doubts and uncertainties that already lurk there. Are we true to to ourselves? Or do we live for the expectations of others? And if we are open and honest, can we ever truly be loved? Can we find the courage to release our deepest secrets, or in the end are we all unknowable... even to ourselves.

Jack: I'm all in.
Emily: Let's do this.

Like life revenge can be a messy business, and both would be so much simpler. If only our heads could figure out which way our hearts will go. But the heart has its reasons of which reason cannot know.

Emily: Emily Thorne no longer exists.
Nolan: It's the end of an era.

Some believe confession helps a guilty soul find peace, releasing us from the shame and regret of our mistakes. In the face of mortality, many feel the need to seek this closure to make things right. Because if death doesn't kill us, our demons will.

Nolan: Ems?
Emily: I loved him more than I've ever loved anyone.

[to Jack] Nolan was wrong, you don't look anything like a stripper.

One thing you can count on. I never forget.

When duress is applied to the emotionally unstable the result can be as violent as it is unpredictable.

Nolan: This is bigger to me than your revenge against the Graysons. This is my...
Emily: ...family.

Emily: I punished your enemies! I cleared your name!
David: I never asked for your help!

Revenge Quotes

My father once wrote, always question where your loyalty lies. The people you trust will expect it, your greatest enemies will desire it and those you treasure the most will without fail, abuse it.
