It is the character of very few men to honor without envy a friend who has prospered
Be content with your lot; one cannot be first in everything
As iron is eaten by rust, so are the envious consumed by envy
That is ever the way. 'Tis all jealousy to the bride and good wishes to the corpse'
Barrie, Sir James Matthew
A negative judgment gives you more satisfaction than praise, provided it smacks of jealousy
Jealousy is the sister of love, as the devil is the brother of angels
Beauveau, Marie Francoise-Catherine de
Nothing is more capable of troubling our reason, and consuming our health, than secret notions of jealousy in solitude
The ear of jealousy heareth all things
When you strengthen your self-esteem, there is no room for jealousy
Jealousy is no more than feeling alone against smiling enemies
Envy can be a positive motivator. Let it inspire you to work harder for what you want
Who surpasses or subdues mankind, must look down on the hate of those below
Byron, Lord George Gordon Noel
Envy is like a fly that passes all the body's sounder parts, and dwells upon the sores.
Envy is a weed that grows in all soils and climates, and is no less luxuriant in the country than in the court; is not confined to any rank of men or extent of fortune, but rages in the breasts of all degrees.
Envy is the art of counting the other fellow's blessings instead of your own.
Many speak the truth when they say that they despise riches, but they mean the riches possessed by others
Colton, Charles Caleb
My wife's jealousy is getting ridiculous. The other day she looked at my calendar and wanted to know who May was
The jealous bring down the curse they fear upon their own heads
It's amazing the clarity that comes with psychotic jealousy
Anger and jealousy can no more bear to lose sight of their objects than love
There is a sort of jealousy which needs very little fire; it is hardly a passion, but a blight bred in the cloudy, damp despondency of uneasy egoism
Jealousy, that dragon which slays love under the pretence of keeping it alive.
Ellis, Henry Havelock
The grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence. The grass is greenest where it is watered. When crossing over fences, carry water with you and tend the grass wherever you may be.
Jealousy is the very reverse of understanding, of sympathy, and of generous feeling. Never has jealousy added to character, never does it make the individual big and fine
A competent and self-confident person is incapable of jealousy in anything. Jealousy is invariably a symptom of neurotic insecurity
Heinlein, Robert Anson
