" Revenge is a dish best served cold"
No it wasn't first coined in that Star Trek Movie by Ricardo Montalban

Who said/wrote this originally?

Pierre Ambroise Francois Choderios de LaClos (1741-1803). He originally said it in French in his 1782 book Les Liasons Dangereuses: "La vengeance est un plat qui se mange froid,"


I hope Delay has an extra helping!
