Envy is the art of counting the other fellow’s blessings instead of your own.
A competent and self-confident person is incapable of jealousy in anything. Jealousy is invariably a symptom of neurotic insecurity.
–Robert A. Heinlein
Don’t waste time on jealousy. Sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes you’re behind.
In jealousy there is more self-love than love.
–Francois de La Rochefoucauld
The envious die not once, but as oft as the envied win applause.
The jealous are troublesome to others, but a torment to themselves.
Love looks through a telescope; envy, through a microscope.
Envy is a symptom of lack of appreciation of our own uniqueness and self worth. Each of us has something to give that no one else has.
