Quotes on Jealousy

Jealousy is simply and clearly the fear that you do not have value.  Jealousy scans for evidence to prove the point - that others will be preferred and rewarded more than you.  There is only one alternative - self-value.  If you cannot love yourself, you will not believe that you are loved.  You will always think it's a mistake or luck.  Take your eyes off others and turn the scanner within.  Find the seeds of your jealousy, clear the old voices and experiences.  Put all the energy into building your personal and emotional security.  Then you will be the one others envy, and you can remember the pain and reach out to them.  (Jennifer James)

As iron is eaten by rust, so are the envious consumed by envy.  (Antisthenes)

It is in the character of very few men to honor without envy a friend who has prospered.  (Aeschylus)

Whoever envies another confesses his superiority.  (Samuel Johnson)

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.  (Elizabeth O'Connor)

Jealousy... is a mental cancer.  (B.C. Forbes)
