Jealousy Quotes

That is ever the way. Tis all jealousy to the bride and good wishes to the corpse.

J. M. Barrie

Jealousy is no more than feeling alone against smiling enemies

al-Hadi, Ali

Nature is at work.. Character and destiny are her handiwork. She gives us love and hate, jealousy and reverence. All that is ours is the power to choose which impulse we shall follow.

David Seabury

Cruelty has a human heart, And jealousy a human face Terror, the human form divine, And secrecy, the human dress

William Blake

Jealousy is the tribute mediocrity pays to genius.

Fulton J. Sheen

Jealousy feeds upon suspicion, and it turns into fury or it ends as soon as we pass from suspicion to certainty.

François de la Rochefoucauld

Charles Caleb Colton

Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play. It is bound up with hatred, jealousy, boastfulness, disregard of all rules and sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence. In other words, it is war minus the shooting.

George Orwell

O! beware, my lord, of jealousy; It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock the meat it feeds on

William Shakespeare

Jealousy is an awkward homage which inferiority renders to merit.

Mme. de Puixieux

Jealousy in romance is like salt in food. A little can enhance the savor, but too much can spoil the pleasure and, under certain circumstances, can be life-threatening.

Maya Angelou

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

Jealousy is no more than feeling alone against smiling enemies.

Elizabeth Bowen

Never waste jealousy on a real man: it is the imaginary man that supplants us all in the long run.
