Difference between Avenge and Revenge

Motive is the message in this word choice. One avenges a wrong done to anyone by seeing that the wrongdoer pays. But revenge is not about high notions of justice; it’s about settling a personal score. While the first term may have positive connotations, the second usually carries some negative ones.
