Envious quotes by Melanie Chisholm
#1. A lot of the time, the British press make me ashamed and embarrassed to be British.

I think that British people in general are really nice and friendly. #Quote by Melanie Chisholm

Envious quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#3. Say to yourself in the early morning: I shall meet today ungrateful, violent, treacherous, envious, uncharitable men. All of these things have come upon them through ignorance of real good and ill ... I can neither be harmed by any of them, for no man will involve me in wrong, nor can I be angry with my kinsman or hate him; for we have come into the world to work together ... #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Envious quotes by Richard North Patterson
#4. labeled, "high school for the rich and vapid." "'If you want a friend,' he admonished me, 'don't choose the insecure, the envious, or the needy. They're the ones who will sell you out. Those you can trust are confident and secure, men and women who like their lives, and don't have to meet their needs at your expense. So no gossips, back stabbers, or celebrity fuckers. No one who has to tell you who they know, what they own, how important they are, or whose self-concept depends on the acceptance of others. The only people who can truly care about you are those who are sufficient unto themselves. #Quote by Richard North Patterson
Envious quotes by Thomas Nagel
#5. A person may be greedy, envious, cowardly, cold, ungenerous, unkind, vain, or conceited, but behave perfectly by a monumental act of the will. #Quote by Thomas Nagel
Envious quotes by Jane Hirshfield
#6. Each Moment a White Bull Steps Shining into the World


If the gods bring to you
a strange and frightening creature,
accept the gift
as if it were one you had chosen.

Say the accustomed prayers,
oil the hooves well,
caress the small ears with praise.

Have the new halter of woven silver
embedded with jewels.
Spare no expense, pay what is asked,
when a gift arrives from the sea.

Treat it as you yourself
would be treated, brought speechless and naked
into the court of a king.

And when the request finally comes,
do not hesitate even an instant----
stroke the white throat,
the heavy trembling dewlaps
you'd come to believe were yours,
and plunge in the knife.

Not once
did you enter the pasture
without pause,
without yourself trembling,
that you came to love it, that was the gift.

Let the envious gods take back what they can. #Quote by Jane Hirshfield
Envious quotes by Anton Chekhov
#7. I don't care for success. The ideas sitting in my head are annoyed by, and envious of, that which I've already written. #Quote by Anton Chekhov
Envious quotes by Robert Dallek
#8. Nixon did not anticipate the extent to which Kissinger, whom he barely knew when he appointed him national-security adviser in 1969, would be envious and high-strung - a maintenance project of the first order. #Quote by Robert Dallek
Envious quotes by Dee Dee M. Scott
#9. If you are living your life to the best of your ability, and pursuing your purpose, you will not be jealous, envious or try to place a stumbling block in the way of another person. #Quote by Dee Dee M. Scott
Envious quotes by Garrett Hedlund
#10. It's funny that I got to do 'On the Road' because the thing that had the biggest impact on me growing up was reading books. I was very inspired by the book and this spirit of Dean Moriarty and how envious we all are of somebody who can be that carefree. #Quote by Garrett Hedlund
Envious quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#11. I'm envious of how well he's engineered to survive, to conquer, to outlast apocalypse. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Envious quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#12. Whom do I hate most among the rabble of today? The socialist rabble, the chandala apostles, who undermine the instinct, the pleasure, the worker's sense of satisfaction with his small existence-who make him envious, who teach him revenge. The source of wrong is never unequal rights but the claim of "equal" rights. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Envious quotes by Frank Deford
#13. I don't think there are many kids who sit around and want to be actors. I don't think there are many kids who want to sit around and want to be senators. But so many of us want to be athletes, so we're envious of them and we put them up on that pedestal. #Quote by Frank Deford
Envious quotes by Phyllis Chesler
#14. Before I began research for this book I was not consciously aware that women were aggressive in indirect ways, that they gossiped and ostracized each other incessantly, and did not acknowledge their own envious and competitive feelings. I now understand that, in order to survive as a woman, among women, one must speak carefully, cautiously, neutrally, indirectly; one must pay careful attention to what more socially powerful women have to say before one speaks; one must learn how to flatter, manipulate, aree with, and appease them. And, if one is hurt or offended by another woman, one does not say so outright; one expresses it indirectly, by turning others against her.
Of course, I refuse to learn these "girlish" lessons. #Quote by Phyllis Chesler
Envious quotes by Baruch Spinoza
#15. Those, who are believed to be most self - abased and humble, are generally in reality the most ambitious and envious #Quote by Baruch Spinoza
Envious quotes by Nick Hornby

Envious quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#17. It's silly to think the left eye would envy the right or that one foot would be jealous of the other, and yet so often it is the case. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Envious quotes by Victor Hugo
#18. It is the habit of the envious man to absolve himself of public wrongs with his own personal grievances. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Envious quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Who is already sick and pale with grief
That thou, her maid, art far more fair than she. . . . #Quote by William Shakespeare
Envious quotes by Gary Zukav

Envious quotes by Amos Oz
#22. I wasn't jealous and I wasn't resentful. Maybe it's the people who are the least loved, provided they're not envious or bitter, who find the most love in themselves to give to others. Don't you think? #Quote by Amos Oz
Envious quotes by Stephen J. Bedard
#23. I always felt that there was something different about me but I did not know what it was. I was socially awkward, friendship was difficult and I was envious of the way other people were able to interact. For #Quote by Stephen J. Bedard

Envious quotes by Sloane Crosley
#26. Because I am a horrible flincher, contact lenses are not an option. I'm always envious of contact-wearers. There are endless reasons to take off one's glasses during the day and, as I have grown older, what I don't see has become increasingly pronounced. #Quote by Sloane Crosley
Envious quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#27. That's what is was to be young - to be enthusiastic rather than envious about the good work other people could do. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut

Envious quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#30. It's bad enough to love someone who don't love you, but to have them told of it is perfectly awful. It makes me wild just to think of it. Ah, Fan, I'm getting so ill tempered and envious and wicked, I don't know what will happen to me. - Polly #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
Envious quotes by George Eliot
#31. I have never fully unbosomed myself to any human being; I have never been encouraged to trust much in the sympathy of my fellow men. But we have all a chance of meeting with some pity, some tenderness, some charity, when we are dead: it is the living only who cannot be forgiven - the living only from whom men's indulgence and reverence are held off, like the rain by the hard east wind. While the heart beats, bruise it - it is your only opportunity; while the eye can still turn towards you with moist, timid entreaty, freeze it with an icy unanswering gaze; while the ear, that delicate messenger to the inmost sanctuary of the soul, can still take in the tones of kindness, put it off with hard civility, or sneering compliment, or envious affectation of indifference; while the creative brain can still throb with the sense of injustice, with the yearning for brotherly recognition - make haste - oppress it with your ill-considered judgements, your trivial comparisons, your careless misrepresentations. The heart will by and by be still - ubi saeoa indignatio ulterius cor lacerate nequit; the eye will cease to entreat; the ear will be deaf; the brain will have ceased from all wants as well as from all work. Then your charitable speeches may find vent; then you may remember and pity the toil and the struggle and the failure; then you may give due honour to the work achieved; then you may find extenuation for errors, and may consent to bury them ("The Lifted Veil") #Quote by George Eliot
Envious quotes by Holbrook Jackson
#32. Books are never out of humour; never envious or jealous, they answer all questions with readiness; ... they teach us how to live and how to die; they dispel melancholy by their mirth, and amuse by their wit; they prepare the soul to suffer everything and desire nothing; they introduce us to ourselves. #Quote by Holbrook Jackson
Envious quotes by Doris Lessing
#33. The human being is given by Nature little more energy than what is needed to maintain the species; to reproduce and to live out our (very short) spans. But if we want to be fit for the journey up and out of the limits of ordinary life, we have to learn not to waste energy. Which we do by busying ourselves too much with material things, and by using our minds in wasteful and damaging ways. You will have seen that I am describing concepts familiar to us from religions, put here in a different context, rescued from being 'sins' or sources of guilt, reintroduced, simply, as tools. It is not 'wicked' to eat and drink too much, not a 'sin' to be envious, but gluttony makes 'the Way' difficult; and thoughts of enmity keep the mind in a seethe, making subtler inputs impossible. And, besides, laws operate that we have not been taught about, whether we have had the benefits of religions or not. Thoughts of anger, jealousy, enmity, revenge, bring retribution. There is nothing theoretical about this: slowly you learn to see patterns where before you saw nothing, because you were over-emotional. #Quote by Doris Lessing
Envious quotes by Colleen Hoover
#34. the fern sitting unaffected by the heat in a planter outside the door. Its leaves are lush and green as if they're giving summer the middle finger with their refusal to succumb to the heat. I smile at the plant, somewhat proud of it. Then I frown with the realization that I'm envious of the resilience of a plant. #Quote by Colleen Hoover
Envious quotes by Desmond Tutu
#35. It always comes back to our insecurities, as we say, "Oh, I'm not as good as you." So instead of accepting that perhaps I am not as good as someone else in some ways and being comfortable with who I am as I am, I spend all my time denigrating you, trying to cut you down to my self-perceived size. The sad problem is that we see ourselves as being quite terribly small. Instead of spending my time being envious, I need to celebrate your and my different gifts, even if mine are perhaps less spectacular than yours. #Quote by Desmond Tutu
Envious quotes by Madame Roland
#36. I have been reading Madame Roland's memoirs and have come to the conclusion that she was a very over-rated woman; snobbish, vain, sentimental, envious - rather a German type. Her last days before her execution were spent in chronicling petty social snubs or triumphs of many years back. She was a democrat chiefly from envy of the noblesse. #Quote by Madame Roland
Envious quotes by Baltasar Gracian
#37. The envious die not once, but as oft as the envied win applause. #Quote by Baltasar Gracian
Envious quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#38. The goodness of a person is normally judged based upon how they act towards those whom they consider to be less fortunate than themselves. This has become the standard for measuring the goodness of a person. But this is erroneous. It is in fact very easy to be good to those whom you consider to be less fortunate than yourself. You know what's difficult? Being good to those you envy! That is what's difficult to do! People believe themselves to practice equality because they are good to those who are lesser than they are, but this is not equality if they do not show the same amount of goodness to the people who happen to be more than they are. I always look at how a person treats those who are more than they are, and that is how I determine the goodness in a person. Because the other option is just too easy. The other option comes with all benefit and no loss. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Envious quotes by C.J. Roberts
#39. I'm envious of the pigeon. It doesn't have a care in the world beyond eating, sleeping, and defecating on park statues. That's the life. #Quote by C.J. Roberts
Envious quotes by Pindar
#40. Even success softens not the heart of the envious. #Quote by Pindar
Envious quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#41. What a relief, Nadya thought; in that light he would not be able to tell that she had been crying.
"You mean if it weren't for the blackout you wouldn't have come?" Dasha took up Shchagov's tone, flirting unconsciously, as she did with every unmarried man she met.
"By no means, never. In bright light women's faces are deprived of all their charm; it reveals their spiteful expressions, their envious glances, their premature wrinkles, their heavy cosmetics."
Nadya shuddered at the words "envious glances" - it was as if he had overheard their argument.
Shchagov went on:" If I were a woman, I would make it a law that lights be kept low. Then everyone would soon have a husband."
Dasha looked disapprovingly at Shchagov. He always talked that way, and she didn't like it. All his phrases seemed memorized, insincere. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Envious quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#42. Every author believes, when his first book is published, that those that acclaim it are his personal friends or impersonal peers, while its revilers can only be envious rogues and nonentities. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Envious quotes by David Emerald Womeldorff
#43. Victims may be defensive, submissive, over-accommodating to others, passive-aggressive in conflict, dependent on others for self-worth, overly sensitive, even manipulative. They're often angry, resentful, and envious, feeling unworthy or ashamed about their circumstances. Have you ever felt or acted this way? #Quote by David Emerald Womeldorff
Envious quotes by Arthur Keith
#44. Man is by nature competitive, combative, ambitious, jealous, envious, and vengeful. #Quote by Arthur Keith
Envious quotes by Kate Quinn
#45. It doesn't do to look too envious of other women. Men are already quite vain enough thinking we fight each other like cats for their attention, aren't they? - Giulia Farnese #Quote by Kate Quinn
Envious quotes by Madeline Miller
#46. I will go," he said. "I will go to Troy."
The rosy gleam of his lip, the fevered green of his eyes. There was not a line anywhere on his face, nothing creased or graying; all crisp. He was spring, golden and bright. Envious death would drink his blood, and grow young again.
He was watching me, his eyes as deep as earth.
"Will you come with me?" he asked.
The never-ending ache of love and sorrow. Perhaps in some other life I could have refused, could have torn my hair and screamed, and made him face his choice alone. But not in this one. He would sail to Troy and I would follow, even into death. "Yes," I whipsered. "Yes."
Relief broke in his face, and he reached for me. I let him hold me, let him press us length to length so close that nothing might fit between us.
Tears came, and fell. Above us, the constellations spun and the moon paced her weary course. We lay stricken and sleepless as the hours passed. #Quote by Madeline Miller
Envious quotes by Socrates
#47. Envy is the ulcer of the soul. #Quote by Socrates
Envious quotes by David J. Lieberman
#48. The reason why we often get poor advice is that it's hard to find a person who always has our best interest at heart, isn't envious in any way, and at no level thinks he knows what's best for you. #Quote by David J. Lieberman
Envious quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#49. It is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to think well of yourself while you are envious. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Envious quotes by H.G.Wells
#50. It is curious to recall some of the mental habits of those departed days. At most terrestrial men fancied there might be other men upon Mars, perhaps inferior to themselves and ready to welcome a missionary enterprise. Yet across the gulf of space, minds that are to our minds as ours are to those of the beasts that perish, intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic, regarded this earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us. And early in the twentieth century came the great disillusionment. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Envious quotes by Ayn Rand
#51. The penalizing of ability for being ability, the penalizing of success for being success, and the sacrifice of productive genius to the demands of envious mediocrity. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Envious quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#52. RICH, adj. Holding in trust and subject to an accounting the property of the indolent, the incompetent, the unthrifty, the envious and the luckless. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Envious quotes by Oscar Wilde
#53. The Number our envious Persons, confirmation our capability. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Envious quotes by H.L. Mencken
#54. Ask the average American what is the salient passion in his emotional armamentarium - what is the idea that lies at the bottom of all his other ideas - and it is very probable that, nine times out of ten, he will nominate his hot and unquenchable rage for liberty. He regards himself, indeed, as the chief exponent of liberty in the whole world, and all its other advocates as no more than his followers, half timorous and half envious. To question his ardour is to insult him as grievously as if one questioned the honour of the republic or the chastity of his wife. And yet it must be plain to any dispassionate observer that this ardour, in the course of a century and a half, has lost a large part of its old burning reality and descended to the estate of a mere phosphorescent superstition. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Envious quotes by Philip Seymour Hoffman
#55. Good work is the only thing that would make me feel jealous or envious. #Quote by Philip Seymour Hoffman
Envious quotes by William Hazlitt
#56. Those who object to wit are envious of it. #Quote by William Hazlitt
Envious quotes by William Petty
#57. That some are poorer than others, ever was and ever will be: And that many are naturally querulous and envious, is an Evil as old as the World. #Quote by William Petty
Envious quotes by Horace
#58. The envious pine at others' success; no greater punishment than envy was devised by Sicilian tyrants. #Quote by Horace
Envious quotes by Augusten Burroughs
#59. It was a great story and I admired her. And I also felt a little envious. Because that bloody tampon had been a secret weapon. And every woman had one. But only a woman like Debby would be brave enough to use it. #Quote by Augusten Burroughs
Envious quotes by Rodney Dangerfield
#60. At my age I'm envious of a stiff wind. #Quote by Rodney Dangerfield
Envious quotes by William Shakespeare
#61. Now, my co-mates and brothers in exile,
Hath not old custom made this life more sweet
Than that of painted pomp? Are not these woods
More free from peril than the envious court? #Quote by William Shakespeare
Envious quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#62. A hopeful life is a successful life. People who bury their hopes and crave for someone's success never know that their diamond is hidden as they envy other's silver! #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Envious quotes by Paul Monette
#63. The pain between them made me as envious as their laughter, because it was real and expressible, blood-red with passion, and not the invisible pain of a ghost like me. Sometimes my head filled with a scream that went on for hours but was silenced by the walls of the closet. My face still wearing its social smile fixed in place as if by a stroke. #Quote by Paul Monette
Envious quotes by Jeaniene Frost
#64. I'm the only authentic Vlad. Everyone else is merely an envious imitation. #Quote by Jeaniene Frost
Envious quotes by Georges Bernanos
#65. We priests are sneered at and always shall be - the accusation is such an easy one - as deeply envious, hypocritical haters of virility. Yet whosoever has experienced sin must know that lust, with its parasitic growth, is for ever threatening to stifle virility as well as intelligence. Impotent to create, it can only contaminate in the germ the frail promise of humanity; it is probably at the very source, the primal cause of all human blemishes; and when amid the windings of this huge jungle whose paths are unknown, we encounter Lust, just as she is, as she emerged forth from the hands of the Master of Prodigies, the cry from our hearts is not only terror but imprecation: 'You, you alone have set death loose upon the world! #Quote by Georges Bernanos
Envious quotes by Dexter Palmer
#66. I shouldn't tell you this, but I've been having these weird dreams like every single night for three weeks now where I'm being contacted. Not by ghosts, exactly, but people from other histories, where things turned out differently than they did here. And they're all envious. And they all say: You are so lucky. You live in the best of all possible worlds. And you don't even know it. #Quote by Dexter Palmer
Envious quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#67. Partially trust your friends.
Moderately trust your family.
Seldomly trust your acquaintances.
Never trust your enemies.

Jealous friends betray you quickly.
Envious friends will betray instantly.
Loyal acquaintances will help you swiftly.
Noble acquaintances will help you immediately. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Envious quotes by Henry Hazlitt
#68. The envious are not satisfied with equality; they secretly yearn for superiority and revenge. In the French Revolution of 1848, a woman coal-heaver is said to have remarked to a richly dressed lady: 'Yes, madam, everything's going to be equal now; I shall go in silks and you'll carry coal.' #Quote by Henry Hazlitt
Envious quotes by Luis Suarez
#69. I'm not envious of Leo [Messi]or Ney [Neymar]. Why would I be? If there is envy in the dressing room, you know it's only going to affect results. #Quote by Luis Suarez
Envious quotes by Hermann Hesse
#70. I had often observed the sparkle in the eye of those who told me of it and I had always treated it with a half-superior, half-envious smile. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Envious quotes by Nancy Mitford
#71. Men, in general, are so treacherous, so envious, and so cruel that it is a comfort to find one who is only weak. #Quote by Nancy Mitford
Envious quotes by Baltasar Gracian
#72. The envious man dies not only once but as many times as the person he envies lives to hear the voice of praise ... #Quote by Baltasar Gracian
Envious quotes by Soroosh Shahrivar
#73. And envy, envious of a time when the poet, the mystic, the scientist and the statesman were nobler than the merchant. #Quote by Soroosh Shahrivar
Envious quotes by Jonathan Franzen
#74. The problem was money and the indignities of life without it. Every stroller, cell phone, Yankees cap, and SUV he saw was a torment. He wasn't covetous, he wasn't envious. But without money he was hardly a man. #Quote by Jonathan Franzen
Envious quotes by William James
#75. Habit is thus the enormous fly-wheel of society, its most precious conservative agent. It alone is what keeps us all within the bounds of ordinance. #Quote by William James
Envious quotes by Edna St. Vincent Millay
#76. For my omniscience paid I toll
In infinite remorse of soul.
All sin was of my sinning, all
Atoning mine, and mine the gall
Of all regret. Mine was the weight
Of every brooded wrong, the hate
That stood behind each envious thrust,
Mine every greed, mine every lust.
And all the while for every grief,
Each suffering, I craved relief
With individual desire, –
Craved all in vain! And felt fierce fire
About a thousand people crawl;
Perished with each, - then mourned for all! #Quote by Edna St. Vincent Millay
Envious quotes by Madeline Miller
#77. Peleus acknowledged this. "Yet other boys will be envious that you have chosen such a one. What will you tell them?"
"I will tell them nothing." The answer came with no hesitation, clear and crisp. "It is not for them to say what I will do. #Quote by Madeline Miller
Envious quotes by Ford Madox Ford
#78. No author, I think, is deserving of much censure for vanity if, taking down one of his ten-year-old books, he exclaims: "Great heavens, did I write as well as that then?" for the implication always is that one does not write any longer so well and few are so envious as to censure the complacencies of an extinct volcano. #Quote by Ford Madox Ford
Envious quotes by Anonymous
#79. I saw his eyes close and figured he'd probably be asleep immediately. I felt irrationally envious of him - someone who could just drift off, someone whose thoughts didn't keep him up. Someone like I'd once been. #Quote by Anonymous
Envious quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#80. The benevolent have the advantage of the envious, even in this present life; for the envious man is tormented not only by all the ill that befalls himself, but by all the good that happens to another; whereas the benevolent man is the better prepared to bear his own calamities unruffled, from the complacency and serenity he has secured from contemplating the prosperity of all around him. #Quote by Charles Caleb Colton
Envious quotes by Rodney Dangerfield
#81. People ask if I can get it up in the morning. I tell them are you kidding I'm envious of a stiff wind. #Quote by Rodney Dangerfield
Envious quotes by Yukino Yukinoshita My Teen Romantic Comedy Snafu
#82. People who don't work hard don't have the right to be envious of the people with talent. People fail because they don't understand the hard work necessary to be successful. #Quote by Yukino Yukinoshita My Teen Romantic Comedy Snafu
Envious quotes by Stephan Labossiere
#83. Never be envious of what someone else has.You don't know the price they paid to get it, and you don't know the price they are paying to keep it. #Quote by Stephan Labossiere
Envious quotes by Stewart Stafford
#84. Stalkers have an obsessive over-identification with their unwilling target but also a latent envy of their talents and/or beauty, If they can't possess the person totally, they will destroy the victim's qualities that they can never have. #Quote by Stewart Stafford
Envious quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#85. And as we are - the world is. That is, if we are greedy, envious, competitive, our society will be competitive, envious, greedy, which brings misery and war. The State is what we are. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Envious quotes by Jeffrey R. Holland
#86. There are going to be times in our lives when someone else gets an unexpected blessing or receives some special recognition. May I plead with us not to be hurt - and certainly not to feel envious - when good fortune comes to another person? We are not diminished when someone else is added upon. We are not in a race against each other to see who is the wealthiest or the most talented or the most beautiful or even the most blessed. The race we are really in is the race against sin, and surely envy is one of the most universal of those. #Quote by Jeffrey R. Holland
Envious quotes by Charles Dickens
#87. You are envious, Biddy, and grudging. You are dissatisfied on account of my rise in fortune, and you can't help showing it. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Envious quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#88. I am told that today rather more than 60 per cent of the men who go to university go on a Government grant. This is a new class that has entered upon the scene. It is the white-collar proletariat. They do not go to university to acquire culture but to get a job, and when they have got one, scamp it. They have no manners and are woefully unable to deal with any social predicament. Their idea of a celebration is to go to a public house and drink six beers. They are mean, malicious and envious . They are scum. #Quote by W. Somerset Maugham
Envious quotes by Rumi
#89. Because I Cannot Sleep

Because I cannot sleep
I make music at night.
I am troubled by the one
whose face has the color of spring flowers.
I have neither sleep nor patience,
neither a good reputation nor disgrace.
A thousand robes of wisdom are gone.
All my good manners have moved a thousand miles away.
The heart and the mind are left angry with each other.
The stars and the moon are envious of each other.
Because of this alienation the physical universe
is getting tighter and tighter.
The moon says, 'How long will I remain
suspended without a sun?'
Without Love's jewel inside of me,
let the bazaar of my existence be destroyed stone by stone.
O Love, You who have been called by a thousand names,
You who know how to pour the wine
into the chalice of the body,
You who give culture to a thousand cultures,
You who are faceless but have a thousand faces,
O Love, You who shape the faces
of Turks, Europeans, and Zanzibaris,
give me a glass from Your bottle,
or a handful of being from Your Branch.
Remove the cork once more.
Then we'll see a thousand chiefs prostrate themselves,
and a circle of ecstatic troubadours will play.
Then the addict will be freed of craving.
and will be resurrected,
and stand in awe till Judgement Day #Quote by Rumi
Envious quotes by Winston Churchill
#90. This movement among the Jews is not new ... this worldwide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the 19th century ... #Quote by Winston Churchill
Envious quotes by Paul Theroux
#91. Mimicry reassures the weak, and the envious fool takes the risk as often as the visionary who mocks the error and leave the man alone. #Quote by Paul Theroux
Envious quotes by Aiden Wilson Tozer
#92. If the envious, the defamers and the backbiters were taken out of the average church, there would be revival overnight. #Quote by Aiden Wilson Tozer
Envious quotes by Voltaire
#93. Men are in general so tricky, so envious, and so cruel that when we find one who is only weak, we are too happy. #Quote by Voltaire
Envious quotes by Winston S. Churchill
#94. The admiration of the whole country was given to London, and all the other great cities in the land braced themselves to take their bit as and when it came and not to be outdone. Indeed, many persons seemed envious of London's distinction, and quite a number came up from the country in order to spend a night or two in town, share the risk, and "see the fun". We had to check this tendency for administrative reasons. *** #Quote by Winston S. Churchill
Envious quotes by Horace
#95. Abridge your hopes in proportion to the shortness of the span of human life; for while we converse, the hours, as if envious of our pleasure, fly away: enjoy, therefore, the present time, and trust not too much to what to-morrow may produce. #Quote by Horace
Envious quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#96. The function of education, then, is to help you from childhood not to imitate anybody, but to be yourself all the time. And this is a most difficult thing to do: whether you are ugly or beautiful, whether you are envious or jealous, always to be what you are, but understand it. To be yourself is very difficult, because you think that what you are is ignoble, and that if you could only change what you are into something noble it would be marvellous; but that never happens. Whereas, if you look at what you actually are and understand it, then in that very understanding there is a transformation. So freedom lies, not in trying to become something different, nor in doing whatever you happen to feel like doing, nor in following the authority of tradition, of your parents, of your guru, but in understanding what you are from moment to moment. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Envious quotes by Albert Camus
#97. We know that Nietzsche was publicly envious of Stendahl's epigram:
"The only excuse for God is that he does not exist." Deprived of the divine will, the world is equally
deprived of unity and finality. That is why it is impossible to pass judgment on the world. Any attempt to
apply a standard of values to the world leads finally to a slander on life. Judgments are based on what is,
with reference to what should be - the kingdom of heaven, eternal concepts, or moral imperatives. But
what should be does not exist; and this world cannot be judged in the name of nothing. "The advantages
of our times: nothing is true, everything is permitted." These magnificent or ironic formulas which are
echoed by thousands of others, at least suffice to demonstrate that Nietzsche accepts the entire burden of
nihilism and rebellion. In his somewhat puerile reflections on "training and selection" he even formulated
the extreme logic of nihilistic reasoning: "Problem: by what means could we obtain a strict form of
complete and contagious nihilism which would teach and practice, with complete scientific awareness,
voluntary death? #Quote by Albert Camus
Envious quotes by Nely Cab
#98. Isis, I am envious of every male that sets his sight on you, and if I could, I would tear out their eyes. #Quote by Nely Cab
Envious quotes by E.M. Forster
#99. What had spoken to her in that scoured-out cavity of the granite? What dwelt in the first of the caves? Something very old and very small. Before time, it was before space also. Something snub-nosed, incapable of generosity -- the undying worm itself. Since hearing its voice, she had not entertained one large thought, she was actually envious of Adela. All this fuss over a frightened girl! Nothing had happened, 'and if it had,' she found herself thinking with the cynicism of a withered priestess, 'if it had there are worse evils than love.' The unspeakable attempt presented itself to her as love: in a cave, in a church -- Boum, it amounts to the same. Visions are supposed to entail profundity, but -- Wait till you get one, dear reader! The abyss also may be petty, the serpent of eternity made of maggots; her constant thought was: 'Less attention should be paid to my future daughter-in-law and more to me, there is no sorrow like my sorrow,' although when the attention was paid she rejected it irritably. #Quote by E.M. Forster
Envious quotes by Renee Fleming
#100. I am so envious of my colleagues from 100 years ago who only sang new works, they hardly ever sang revivals. #Quote by Renee Fleming
Envious quotes by Voltaire
#101. Do you think ... that men have always massacred each other, as they do today? Have they always been liars, cheats, traitors, brigands, weak, flighty, cowardly, envious, gluttonous, drunken, grasping, and vicious, bloody, backbiting, debauched, fanatical, hypocritical, and silly? #Quote by Voltaire
Envious quotes by Lawrence G. Lovasik
#102. Love rejoices in good wherever it finds it; envy is pained by good, and the sight of the happiness of others hurts the eyes and the heart of the envious man. Love wishes to give; envy would rather receive. Love creates; envy destroys. Love builds up; envy pulls down. Love helps those in need, comforts the afflicted, and strives to turn all that is evil into good; envy would turn the little happiness to be found in this world into evil, sorrow, and pain. #Quote by Lawrence G. Lovasik
Envious quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#103. Every campaign, Garry Wills once wrote, "taught Nixon the same lesson: mobilize resentment against those in power." History taught the same to many conservative and reactionary populist movements, whose real attitude to those in power and authority was one of a servile, envious, vicarious adoration. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Envious quotes by Hayley Stumbo
#104. I've got such an envious heart;
It sloshes and aches
when you touch her face,
and I don't know what to do with it,
other than to just
let
it
break. #Quote by Hayley Stumbo
Envious quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Envious quotes by C.L.Stone
#106. All emotions have an opposite. Anger and sadness are two of the same. When someone is angry, when they calm down, you may discover they're actually sad about some part in their life. Do you know what the other side of envy is?"
I shook my head.
"It's a lack of confidence, self-esteem. If he envies Silas's strength, then he's unsure about his own. If he's envious of Victor's wealth and what he can give you, it's because he's insecure about his lack of money and ability to give you those material things. Gabriel's greatest weakness is his own perception of himself. #Quote by C.L.Stone
Envious quotes by Olivia Munn
#107. Live the life you'd be envious of if you saw someone else living it. This is my personal mantra. Whenever I'm going through a difficult time, like a breakup, and I'm wishing to be the person who could get over it and move on, I tell myself to be that person. Instead of waiting to be inspired by someone else and being jealous that they're living a life I wish I had, I tell myself not to wait for that moment and to start being the person I want to be. If you wish you were the woman who went for that big promotion, learned a second language, dumped that guy who cheated on you, then just be that person. Think, if I have the energy to wish for it, I have the energy to do it. #Quote by Olivia Munn
Envious quotes by Janet Potter

You should read the book that you see someone on the train reading and trying to hide that they're laughing.

You should read the book that you find left behind in the airplane seat pocket, on a park bench, on the bus, at a restaurant, or in a hotel room.

You should read the book that you see someone reading for hours in a coffee shop - there when you got there and still there when you left - that made you envious because you were working instead of absorbed in a book.

You should read the book you find in your grandparents' house that's inscribed "To Ray, all my love, Christmas 1949."

You should read the book that you didn't read when it was assigned in your high school English class. You'd probably like it better now anyway.

You should read the book whose author happened to mention on Charlie Rose that their favorite band is your favorite band.

You should read the book that your favorite band references in their lyrics.

You should read the book that your history professor mentions and then says, "which, by the way, is a great book," offhandedly.

Envious quotes by Kevin Nealon
#110. When I would see my friends with their kids, I was envious that you can use children to get out of just about anything. If you don't feel like going to a dinner party, you could say, 'My kid's sick. I can't make it.' Who's gonna argue with you? #Quote by Kevin Nealon
Envious quotes by Ziad K. Abdelnour
#111. We were born a nation of entrepreneurs. That is why so many
people came to this country from so many different nations and cultures
around the globe. The entrepreneur sees the opportunity, takes
action, and successfully learns from the experience. They go on to
create wealth. They become part of that demographic that is called
"the rich." They, not the government, drive the economy and create
jobs. Only a mind with an envious, greedy perspective would consider
punitively taxing the rich as a viable solution to our fiscal miasma.
This is a solution springing from the fount of ignorance and deemed
wise only by fools. #Quote by Ziad K. Abdelnour
Envious quotes by Herman Van Rompuy

Envious quotes by John Darnielle

Envious quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#114. Favourites.-There is, of course, here and there on this terrestrial sphere a kind of sequel to love, in which that envious longing of two persons for one another has yielded to a new desire and covetousness, to a common, higher thirst for a superior ideal standing above them : but who knows this love? Who has experienced it? Its right name is friendship. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Envious quotes by Ernst F. Schumacher
#115. How could we even begin to disarm greed and envy? Perhaps by being much less greedy and envious ourselves; perhaps by resisting the temptation of letting our luxuries become needs; and perhaps by even scrutinising our needs to see if they cannot be simplified and reduced. #Quote by Ernst F. Schumacher
Envious quotes by Anna Brownell Jameson
#116. Reputation being essentially contemporaneous, is always at the mercy of the Envious and the Ignorant. But Fame, whose very birth is posthumous, and which is only known to exist by the echo of its footsteps through congenial minds, can neither be increased nor diminished by any degree of wilfulness. #Quote by Anna Brownell Jameson
Envious quotes by Fyodor Dostoevsky
#117. The enemies of living life; outdated little liberals, afraid of their own independence; lackeys of thought, enemies of the person and freedom, decrepit preachers of carrion and rot! What do they have: gray heads, the golden mean, the most abject and philistine giftlessness, envious equality, equality without personal dignity, equality as understood by a lackey or a Frenchman of the year ninety-three ... And scoundrells, above all, scoundrels, scoundrels everywhere! #Quote by Fyodor Dostoevsky

#118. Envy yearns to find flaws. #Quote by Wayne Gerard Trotman
Envious quotes by Zadie Smith
#119. I have known many true connoisseurs, with excellent tastes that range across the humanities and the culinary arts
and they never fail to have a fatal effect on my self-esteem. When I find myself sitting at dinner next to someone who knows just as much about novels as I do but has somehow also found the mental space to adore and be knowledgeable about the opera, have strong opinions about the relative rankings of Renaissance painters, an encyclopedic knowledge of the English civil war, of French wines
I feel an anxiety that nudges beyond the envious into the existential. How did she find the time? #Quote by Zadie Smith
Envious quotes by Baruch Spinoza
#120. Those who are believed to be most abject and humble are usually most ambitious and envious. #Quote by Baruch Spinoza
Envious quotes by Socrates

Envious quotes by Steve Maraboli
#122. Action separates the heroes from the cowards, the achievers from the complainers, the successful from the mere dreamers, the happy from the envious; it separates those who rise to the challenge of their goals from the haters who cower in the shadow of stagnancy. #Quote by Steve Maraboli
Envious quotes by Henry James

Envious quotes by Jung Chang
#125. Much of Chinese society still expected its women to hold themselves in a sedate manner, lower their eyelids in response to men's stares, and restrict their smile to a faint curve of the lips which did not expose their teeth. They were not meant to use hand gestures at all. If they contravened any of these canons of behavior they would be considered 'flirtatious." Under Mao, flirting with./bre/gners was an unspeakable crime.

I was furious at the innuendo against me. It had been my Communist parents who had given me a liberal upbringing.

They had regarded the restrictions on women as precisely the sort of thing a Communist revolution should put an end to. But now oppression of women joined hands with political repression, and served resentment and petty jealousy.

One day, a Pakistani ship arrived. The Pakistani military attache came down from Peking. Long ordered us all to spring-clean the club from top to bottom, and laid on a banquet, for which he asked me to be his interpreter, which made some of the other students extremely envious. A few days later the Pakistanis gave a farewell dinner on their ship, and I was invited. The military attache had been to Sichuan, and they had prepared a special Sichuan dish for me. Long was delighted by the invitation, as was I. But despite a personal appeal from the captain and even a threat from Long to bar future students, my teachers said that no one was allowed on board a foreign ship.

Envious quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#126. Pain and self-loathing habitually implants its incendiary embers in the universal desire for other people to love us. What a life torn asunder by bolts of pain laced with shame teaches us is that we cannot look endlessly for other people to love us. We must delve from ourselves the ability to unreservedly love all life forms and empathize with all people. We should care for, and not judge, or be envious of other people. When we learn unconditionally to love other people, we learn to accept our own fitful humanity. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster

Envious quotes by Francesca Lia Block
#130. Once she was standing by her locker and her puka shells broke and scattered and she made a joke about it but he could tell she was upset. He wanted to buy her some more. He wanted to give her a million strands of little nesting polished shells, and tropical flowers and ice creams and lemonades and a pale blue surfboard to teach her to surf on and anything else she wanted. Instead he let his checkered Vans step on one of the rolling shells and crush it. #Quote by Francesca Lia Block
Envious quotes by Bertrand Russell
#131. The Ten Commandments that, as a teacher, I should wish to promulgate, might be set forth as follows:

1- Do not feel absolutely certain of anything.
2- Do not think it worth while to proceed by concealing evidence, for the evidence is sure to come to light.
3- Never try to discourage thinking for you are sure to succeed.
4- When you meet with opposition, even if it should be from your husband or your children, endeavor to overcome it by argument and not by authority, for a victory dependent upon authority is unreal and illusory.
5- Have no respect for the authority of others, for there are always contrary authorities to be found.
6- Do not use power to suppress opinions you think pernicious, for if you do the opinions will suppress you.
7- Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once eccentric.
8- Find more pleasure in intelligent dissent than in passive agreement, for, if you value intelligence as you should, the former implies a deeper agreement than the latter.
9- Be scrupulously truthful, even if the truth is inconvenient, for it is more inconvenient when you try to conceal it.
10- Do not feel envious of the happiness of those who live in a fool's paradise, for only a fool will think that it is happiness. #Quote by Bertrand Russell

Envious quotes by William Shakespeare
#142. RICHARD, DUKE OF GLOUCESTER:

Why then I do but dream on sovereignty,
Like one that stands upon a promontory
And spies a far-off shore where he would tread,
Wishing his foot were equal with his eye,
And chides the sea that sunders him from thence,
Saying, he'll lade it dry to have his way:
So do I wish the crown, being so far off,
And so I chide the means that keeps me from it,
And so, I say, I'll cut the causes off,
Flattering me with impossibilities,
My eye's too quick, my hear o'erweens too much,
Unless my hand and strength could equal them.
Well, say there is no kingdom then for Richard;
What other pleasure can the world afford?
I'll make my heaven in a lady's lap,
And deck my body in gay ornaments,
And witch sweet ladies with my words and looks.
O miserable thought! and more unlikely
Than to accomplish twenty golden crowns!
Why, love forswore me in my mother's womb;
And for I should not deal in her soft laws,
She did corrupt frail nature with some bribe,
To shrink mine arm up like a wither'd shrub,
To make an envious mountain on my back,
Where sits deformity to mock my body;
To shape my legs of an unequal size,
To disproportion me in every part,
Like to a chaos, or an unlick'd bear-whelp
That carries no impression like the dam.
And am I then a man to be belov'd?
O monstrous fault, to harbor such a thought!

Envious quotes by Osho
#143. Destructiveness cannot bring happiness; destruction is against the law of creation. The law of creation is to be creative. So Buddha says if you are destructive you will be miserable.If you are envious, infatuated, competitive, ambitious, jealous, possessive, you will be in misery.
_____________
In Buddhist terminology there is nothing like sin, only mistakes, errors. There is no condemnation. You can correct the error, you can correct the mistake. It is simple.
__________
One has to leave the parents, one has to leave the home, one has to leave the past. one has to become totally independent, alone ... trembling in that aloneness, but one has to become alone. One has to become absolutely responsible for oneself, and then only can understand the mind. If you go on depending on others, your very dependence will not allow you to understand who you are. #Quote by Osho
Envious quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#144. I thought Lady Helen was going to introduce you to the lady doctor who treated Pandora's shoulder."
"Dr. Gibson? Yes, she's a marvelous woman. As a matter of fact, she came to visit Eversby Priory this summer."
All Phoebe's pleasant feelings abruptly turned disagreeable. "Surely not without a chaperone."
"Garrett Gibson doesn't bother with chaperones," West replied, his lips twitching as if at some private memory. "The usual rules don't apply to her. She brought a patient, Mr. Ethan Ransom, who was injured and needed to recuperate in peace and quiet."
Poisonous jealousy flooded Phoebe. The female doctor was an accomplished and unconventional woman- exactly the kind who would attract his interest. "You must have found her fascinating."
"Anyone would. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas

#147. I am jealous. I'm envious of the easy options all the rest of you enjoy. To date someone or not to date someone? Does she like him? Does he like her?

I might be permitted to admire someone from afar, to harbor a yearning in secret, but to act on it would cost me everything. #Quote by Sarah Henstra

Envious quotes by Donna Lynn Hope
#155. He studied the woman before him, not as lovely as she once was, ordinary in appearance, scarred by living, abandoned by many, breathtakingly to be near and altogether unforgettable. "I have no friends," she spoke forth hauntingly. "I am alone." He couldn't believe it. But then he could for the rare creature near enough to touch was out of their league. She wasn't envied for the shallowness of appearance or the superficiality of status or possessions; she was envied for being uncommon and for possessing indomitable strength, something only a lifetime of suffering could shape. #Quote by Donna Lynn Hope

Envious quotes by Jarod Kintz
#158. Dear Miss Hummingbird,


The leaves are turning green now, but not with envy. But they should be envious, because I, Jarod Ora Kintz, son of a thousand question marks, now have what every unemployed American most covets: a cat. Oh, and I've also got a new job. Almost forgot to mention it.

"What will you be doing?" you may be wondering, and "Is it legal?" Those answers, as you can imagine, are gray. But so are elephants. Gray, I mean. Elephants are gray, not illegal, even though a certain political party in this country that's represented by an elephant mascot certainly does things that to the normal citizen would be considered illegal. But I digress.


Turns out that right under "Mayor of Orafouraville" on my resume, I can now add "Concierge at the Five-Star Hotel." Concierge is just a fancy term that means something similar in Latin, I'm sure.


My job will be to arrange activities for hotel guests for everything from opera tickets to dinner reservations to even organizing the burial of a loved one - though not if the disposal of the body is to be kept secret because a murder has occurred. Murder is such a ghastly (and ghostly) way to spoil dinner reservations for two, wouldn't you agree? Or, rather, wouldn't you not disagree?


This job will allow me to meet interesting people from all over the planet, and possibly even other planets (like Pluto, if that's still even a planet).


It's a full-time job, at least par #Quote by Jarod Kintz

Envious quotes by Caroline Blakiston

Envious quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#164. On hearing of the interesting events which have happened in the course of a man's experience, many people will wish that similar things had happened in their lives too, completely forgetting that they should be envious rather of the mental aptitude which lent those events the significance they possess when he describes them ; to a man of genius they were interesting adventures; but to the dull perceptions of an ordinary individual they would have been stale, everyday occurrences.
This is, in the highest degree, the case with many of Goethe's and Byron's poems, which are obviously founded upon actual facts; where it is open to a foolish reader to envy the poet because so many delightful things happened to him, instead of envying that mighty power of fantasy which was capable of turning a fairly common experience into something so great and beautiful. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Envious quotes by Alain De Botton
#165. Every adult life could be said to be defined by two great love stories. The first - the story of our quest for sexual love - is well known and well charted, its vagaries form the staple of music and literature, it is socially accepted and celebrated. The second - the story of our quest for love from the world - is a more secret and shameful tale. If mentioned, it tends to be in caustic, mocking terms, as something of interest chiefly to envious or deficient souls, or else the drive for status is interpreted in an economic sense alone. And yet this second love story is no less intense than the first, it is no less complicated, important or universal, and its setbacks are no less painful. There is heartbreak here too. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Envious quotes by Epictetus
#166. Does a man reproach thee for being proud or ill-natured, envious or conceited, ignorant or detracting? Consider with thyself whether his reproaches are true. If they are not, consider that thou art not the person whom he reproaches, but that he reviles an imaginary being, and perhaps loves what thou really art, though he hates what thou appearest to be. #Quote by Epictetus
Envious quotes by Nicole Krauss
#167. Daniel was twenty-three, a year younger than I was, and though he hadn't yet published a book of poems he seemed to have spent his time better, or more imaginatively, or maybe what could be said is that he felt a pressure to go places, meet people, and experience things that, whenever I have encountered it in someone, has always made me envious. #Quote by Nicole Krauss
Envious quotes by Marcelle Hinkson

Envious quotes by Suzy Kassem
#169. REMEMBER THE LOTUS FLOWER

Great people will always be mocked by those
Who feel smaller than them.
A lion does not flinch at laughter coming from a hyena.
A gorilla does not budge from a banana thrown at it by a monkey.
A nightingale does not stop singing its beautiful song
At the intrusion of an annoying woodpecker.
Whenever you should doubt your self-worth, remember the lotus flower.
Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud,
It does not allow the dirt that surrounds it
To affect its growth or beauty.
Be that lotus flower always.
Do not allow any negativity or ugliness
In your surroundings,
Destroy your confidence,
Affect your growth,
Or make you question your self-worth.
It is very normal for one ugly weed
To not want to stand alone.
Remember this always.
If you were ugly,
Or just as small as they feel they are,
Then they would not feel so bitter and envious
Each and every time they are forced
To glance up at magnificently
Divine YOU.

REMEMBER THE LOTUS FLOWER by Suzy Kassem #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Envious quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#170. The mark of extraordinary merit is to see those most envious of it constrained to praise. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Envious quotes by C.S. Lewis
#171. Do not imagine that if you meet a really humble man he will be what most people call 'humble' nowadays: he will not be a sort of greasy, smarmy person, who is always telling you that, of course, he is nobody.
Probably all you will think about him is that he seemed a cheerful, intelligent chap who took a real interest in what you said to him.
If you do dislike him it will be because you feel a little envious of anyone who seems to enjoy life so easily. He will not be thinking about humility: he will not be thinking about himself at all. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Envious quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#172. If people are trying to pull you down, it is proof that you are above them. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Envious quotes by Megan Squires
#173. Honestly, Eppie, no one had ever cared this much about being close to me. I sorta don't know what to do with it," he admitted. "And though I'm completely flattered that you are envious of the physical closeness these roommates and bugs share with me, you've forgotten one thing."
"What's that?"
His words were doors, each one of them opening up another part of him, inviting me in.
"That your heart already lives here." He picked up my hand and pressed my palm flatly against his chest, directly over his heart. "And you can't get any closer than that. #Quote by Megan Squires
Envious quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#174. The praise of the envious is far less creditable than their censure; they praise only that which they can surpass, but that which surpasses them they censure. #Quote by Charles Caleb Colton
Envious quotes by Ngugi Wa Thiongo
#175. In the theatre that I was used to in school and colleges and in amateur circles, the actors rehearsed more or less in secrecy and then sprung their finished perfection. on an unsuspecting audience who were of course surprised into envious admiration: oh, what perfection, what talent, what inspired gifts - I certainly could never do such a thing! Such a theatre is part of the general bourgeois education system which practices education as a process of weakening people, of making them feel they cannot do this or that - oh, it must take such brains! - In other words education as a means of mystifying knowledge and hence reality. Education, far from giving people -the confidence in their ability and capacities to overcome obstacles or to become masters of the laws governing external nature as human beings, tends to make them feel their inadequacies, their weaknesses and their incapacities in the face of reality; and their inability to do anything about the conditions governing their lives. They become more and more alienated from themselves and from their natural and social environment. Education as a process of alienation produces a gallery of active stars and an undifferentiated mass of grateful admirers. The Olympian gods of the Greek mythology or the dashing knights of the middle ages are reborn in the -twentieth century as superstar politicians, scientists, sportsmen, actors, the handsome doers or heroes, with the ordinary people watching passively, gratefully, admiringly. #Quote by Ngugi Wa Thiongo

#176. I'm not jealous or envious of any other woman, other than the woman I'm trying to become. She has everything I desire and I can't wait to be her. #Quote by Mr
Envious quotes by Debasish Mridha
#177. Roots never get the appreciation that a flower does, but that doesn't make them envious. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Envious quotes by Philippa Gregory
#178. But to tell you the truth, it is the same for me. I am as envious of her as she is of me. But I have seen her rise and rise. #Quote by Philippa Gregory
Envious quotes by Bryant A. Loney
#179. Some people were simply created with the right genes and the proper social skills, I figured. They ended up at a lunch table with a group of good-looking individuals, like them, who did what all good-looking individuals managed: making the rest of us feel both envious of them and sad for ourselves, intentional or not. They had activities outside of school and followers online - people of social necessity who sat at home on Friday nights and 'liked' popular posts in hopes that they, too, might one day be as attractive and personable. #Quote by Bryant A. Loney

Envious quotes by Max Beesley
#181. Acting can be a difficult business. When I was younger, if my mates were doing better than me, I might be a little bit envious, but as I have got older, I love to see actors cracking on and succeeding. The same goes for writers. #Quote by Max Beesley
Envious quotes by Moby
#182. I'm envious of people who can sleep as long as they want. I have the circadian rhythm of a farmer. #Quote by Moby
Envious quotes by Dean Koontz
#183. Fire, ice, asteroids and pole shifts are bogeymen with which we distract ourselves from the real threat of our time. In an age when everyone invents his own truth, there is no community, only factions. Without community, there can be no consensus to resist the greedy, the envious, the power-mad narcissists who seize control and turn the institutions of civilization into a series of doom machines. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Envious quotes by Helmut Schoeck
#184. The envious man thinks that if his neighbor breaks a leg, he will be able to walk better himself #Quote by Helmut Schoeck
Envious quotes by Jessica Sorensen
#185. Ella, when are you going to realize that you two belong together? Everyone who lays eyes on you can see it and is envious of it because that kind of love isn't supposed to exist."
"What kind of love are you talking about?"
"The kind of love that owns you. The kind where you know the other person inside and out. Where you can go through hell and back and still make it out ok. #Quote by Jessica Sorensen
Envious quotes by Robert Pattinson
#186. I never understood the nudity thing. I'm so envious of people who can walk around naked. #Quote by Robert Pattinson
Envious quotes by Andy Stanley
#187. Imagine a world where unbelievers were critical of what we believed but envious of how well we treated one another. #Quote by Andy Stanley
Envious quotes by Mason Cooley
#188. Failure makes us envious. Success makes us greedy. #Quote by Mason Cooley
Envious quotes by Henry Cloud
#189. The two states - envious and grateful - have little to do with what a person actually receives. They have more to do with the character of the person. If you give something to entitled, envious people, it profits them or you nothing. They just feel that you have finally paid your debt to them. If you give to grateful people, they feel overwhelmed with how fortunate they are and how good you are. Parents need to help children work through their feelings of entitlement and envy and move to a position of gratitude. #Quote by Henry Cloud
Envious quotes by William Shakespeare
#190. There is a willow grows aslant a brook, That shows his hoar leaves in the glassy stream; There with fantastic garlands did she come Of crow-flowers, nettles, daisies, and long purples That liberal shepherds give a grosser name, But our cold maids do dead men's fingers call them: There, on the pendent boughs her coronet weeds Clambering to hang, an envious sliver broke; When down her weedy trophies and herself Fell in the weeping brook. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Envious quotes by Ottessa Moshfegh
#191. They were all so jovial and relaxed with one another, fraternal even. Maybe I was envious of that. They had lives - that was evident. #Quote by Ottessa Moshfegh
Envious quotes by Neil Gaiman
#192. I watch with envious eyes and mind, the single-souled who dare not feel
The wind that blows beyond the moon, who do not hear the fairy reel #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Envious quotes by Rick Warren
#193. Anytime you feel jealous or envious, you reject your uniqueness. It's a criticism of God's plan for you. #Quote by Rick Warren
Envious quotes by Alexander Lowen
#194. Power seems to confer on its possessor a mantle of superiority, specialness, and sexual potency, which the envious person desperately wants because he feels himself on some level to be inferior, unimportant, and impotent. #Quote by Alexander Lowen
Envious quotes by John Cleese
#195. The Americans are so much more positive. They are much more in love with success. In Britain, they're a fairly envious bunch, and they love it if you fail. #Quote by John Cleese
Envious quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#196. Your tears are never invisible
there is always an insecure woman that lights up when you point them out. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Envious quotes by Francisco Goya
#197. I am beginning to have more powerful enemies and more envious ones, too. #Quote by Francisco Goya
Envious quotes by M.R. Mathias
#198. Too many of his people had returned from their travels through the realms of men with sad and pathetic tales of jealousy and hatred toward his kind. What always irritated him most about the stories was that he was as much human as he was Zythian. By all rights, he should hate himself for one half being envious of the other. #Quote by M.R. Mathias
Envious quotes by Hermann Hesse
#199. Man designs for himself a garden with a hundred kinds of trees, a thousand kinds of flowers, a hundred kinds of fruit and vegetables. Suppose, then, that the gardener of this garden knew no other distinction between edible and inedible, nine-tenths of this garden would be useless to him. He would pull up the most enchanting flowers and hew down the noblest trees and even regard them with a loathing and envious eye. This is what the Steppenwolf does with the thousand flowers of his soul. What does not stand classified as either man or wolf he does not see at all. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Envious quotes by Sandra Bullock
#200. I was always longing to do, emotionally and physically, what my male counterparts always got to do. I just felt envious, every time I saw a movie that I was in awe of, and it was usually a male lead. And those kinds of roles weren't available. They just weren't being written. #Quote by Sandra Bullock
