Jealousy is the tribute mediocrity pays to genius.
Cruelty has a human heart, And jealousy a human face Terror, the human form divine, And secrecy, the human dress
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.
Anger and jealousy can no more bear to lose sight of their objects than love.
Jealousy is the great exaggerator.
Jealousy is nothing more than a fear of abandonment
Oh, the jealousy, the greed is the unraveling. It's the unraveling and it undoes all the joy that could be.
It will be found an unjust and unwise jealousy to deprive a man of his natural liberty upon the supposition he may abuse it.
Jealousy feeds upon suspicion, and it turns into fury or it ends as soon as we pass from suspicion to certainty.
So my great love for thee lies tranquil, deep,
Forever; though above it passions fierce,
Ambition, hatred, jealousy; like waves
That seem from earths core to the sky to leap,
But oceans depths can never really pierce;
Hide its great calm, while all the surface raves.
These golden matters
Of Gyges and his treasuries
Are no concern of mine.
Jealousy has no power over me,
Nor do I envy a god his work,
And I do not burn to rule.
Such things have no
Fascination for my eyes.
What I needed most was to love and to be loved, eager to be caught. Happily I wrapped those painful bonds around me; and sure enough, I would be lashed with the red-hot pokers or jealousy, by suspicions and fear, by burst of anger and quarrels.
Jealousy is the cause of erosion of good deeds, as well as the attracter of chastisement.
Nothing is more capable of troubling our reason, and consuming our health, than secret notions of jealousy in solitude.
Cruelty has a human heart,
And Jealousy a human face;
Terror the human form divine,
And Secrecy the human dress.
Why art thou silent and invisible,
Father of Jealousy?
Jealousy is just love and hate at the same time.
