Jealous Girlfriend Quotes

Writers are as jealous as pigeons.

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

Jealousy is bred in doubts. When those doubts change into certainties, then the passion either ceases or turns absolute madness.

The most effective moments in the theatre are those that appeal to basic and commonplace emotions--love of woman, love of home, love of country, love of right, anger, jealousy, revenge, ambition, lust, and treachery.

CLAYTON HAMILTON

Jealousy is indeed a poor medium to secure love, but it is a secure medium to destroy one's self-respect. For jealous people, like dope-fiends, stoop to the lowest level and in the end inspire only disgust and loathing.

Emma Goldman

Jealousy is the fear or apprehension of superiority: envy our uneasiness under it.

Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.

Patrick Henry

Arab Proverb

A loving relationship is one in which the loved one is free to be himself to laugh with me, but never at me; to cry with me, but never because of me; to love life, to love himself, to love being loved. Such a relationship is based upon freedom and can never grow in a jealous heart.

Leo Buscaglia

Joyce Meyer

People may show jealousy, but hide their envy.

Mason Cooley

Rumor is a pipe Blown by surmises, jealousies, conjectures, And of so easy and so plain a stop That the blunt monster with uncounted heads, The still-discordant wavering multitude, Can play upon it.

William Shakespeare

Jealousy is the grave of affection

Francis William Bourdillon

Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he? / All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.
