Who started that phrase anyway? An eye for an eye. Is this piece of advice suggesting a simple trade of some sort?
To take revenge on someone for taking an eye of mine, must I take theirs too? Is it so I can hurt those who caused me harm? Or is it to
make myself feel better by hurting someone just like they've hurt me?
Doesn't that make me become the person I hate?
Is an eye for an eye truly good advice? To be holding someone's eye in my hand only to know that I've become the person who I despise.
