Envy is thin because it bites but never eats. ~Spanish Proverb
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 in romance is like salt in food. A little can enhance the

bitter of the emotions because associated with the sweetest. ~A.R.

love. ~George Eliot
The ear of jealousy heareth all things. ~The Bible (Apocrypha),
Wisdom of Solomon 1:10
Our envy always lasts longer than the happiness of those we envy.
~Francois Duc de La Rochefoucauld
Envy is ignorance. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Envy is the most stupid of vices, for there is no single advantage to be
gained from it. ~Honore de Balzac
