Essays of studies by francis bacon

Bacon's chief argument is that revenge is a perversion of the law--the first wrong is governed by the law (but it's offensive), but the act of revenge is outside the law.  Immediately appealing to a sense of moral superiority, Bacon points out that ignoring a wrong makes a man superior to the person who committed the first wrong.  And, in an attempt to add common sense to the mix of reasons, Bacon points out that wise men have enough to do with the present and the future.  Since a wrong in the past cannot be made right, it's best to concentrate on trying to influence the present and future.
