Commentary on Meditations: B6:6-7

The best revenge is not to be like your enemy.

Let one thing be your joy and comfort: to move on from social act to social act, with your mind on god.

Not a whole lot to say or add to this.  When it comes to action, we should not seek revenge in the traditional sense.  Rather, we can disengage in the tit-for-tat game and rise above the fray - seek the higher ground.

Also, our every day acts - from moment to moment - should be social acts.  To help; to serve.  Let this be your joy and consolation.
