Jealousy Quotes

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

George Bernard Shaw

Jealousy is no more than feeling alone against smiling enemies.

Elizabeth Bowen

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

Whatever spiteful fools may say, Each jealous ranting yelper, No woman ever went astray, Without a man to help her
