There's a famous saying: Success is the best form of revenge. Or Frank Sinatra's version: The best revenge is massive success. I get the gist: Better to focus on your work, life and achieve something instead of plotting dark revenge strategies to get even with the offender or to teach him/her a lesson. The Quick Question: Does the saying prescribe that the success should be presented or conveyed to the offender? Or, is the success primarily for the offended party's personal satisfaction? . .
