Jealousy quotes by Lynsay Sands
#1. Bastien noticed that the two women hugged and touched and patted a lot. It was nice in one way, warm and affectionate, but he also felt a pinch of jealousy, wishing he was the recipient of some of those hugs, pats and touches. But Terri had been keeping her distance since Kate and Lucern had arrived. She'd even been avoiding eye contact, and that troubled him. He wanted to put his arm around her and claim her as his own. She didn't seem to feel the same. #Quote by Lynsay Sands
Jealousy quotes by William Shakespeare
#2. Jealous souls need no evidence. They aren't jealous because of a reason, but merely because they are jealous people. Jealousy is a monster that gives birth to itself. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Jealousy quotes by Virginia Woolf
#3. Beneath my eyes opens
a book; I see to the bottom; the heart
I see to the depths. I know what loves are trembling into fire; how jealousy shoots its green flashes hither and thither; how intricately love crosses love; love makes knots; love brutally tears them apart. I have been knotted; I have been torn apart. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Jealousy quotes by Havelock Ellis
#4. Jealousy, that dragon which slays love under the pretence of keeping it alive. #Quote by Havelock Ellis
Jealousy quotes by Ted
#5. It was at times a long, difficult road. But I'm glad it was long and difficult, because if I hadn't gone through hell to get there, the lesson might not have been as clear. You see, kids, right from the moment I met your mom I knew, I have to love this women as much as I can and as long as I can and I can never stop loving her, not even for a second. I carried that lesson through every stupid fight we ever had, every 5 a.m. Christmas morning, every sleepy Sunday afternoon, every speed bump, every pang of jealousy or boredom or uncertainty that came our way. I carried that lesson with me. #Quote by Ted
Jealousy quotes by Stebby Julionatan
#6. I never ever feel jealous to those who have more than i have,but i just feel jealous to those who could give more than i could. #Quote by Stebby Julionatan
Jealousy quotes by Mrs. Henry Wood
#7. Shakespeare calls jealousy yellow and green; I think it may be called black and white for it most assuredly views white as black, and black as white. The most fanciful surmises wear the aspect of truth, the greatest improbabilities appear as consistent realities. #Quote by Mrs. Henry Wood
Jealousy quotes by Nora Ephron
#8. I had no jealousy of work, no jealousy of money. I was just jealous of women who took advantage of men, because I didn't know how to do it. #Quote by Nora Ephron
Jealousy quotes by Margaret Mead
#9. Jealousy is not a barometer by which the depth of love can be read. It merely records the degree of the lover's insecurity. #Quote by Margaret Mead
Jealousy quotes by Bob Edwards
#10. One trouble with being efficient is that it makes everybody hate you so. #Quote by Bob Edwards
Jealousy quotes by Herodotus
#11. But I like not these great success of yours; for I know how jealous are the gods. #Quote by Herodotus
Jealousy quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#12. Entering by the carré, a piece of mirror- glass, set in an oaken cabinet, repeated my image. It said I was changed: my cheeks and lips were sodden white, my eyes were glassy, and my eyelids swollen and purple.

On rejoining my companions, I knew they all looked at me - my heart seemed discovered to them: I believed myself self-betrayed. Hideously certain did it seem that the very youngest of the school must guess why and for whom I despaired. #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Jealousy quotes by Jankiel Wiernik
#13. They no longer shouted, because the thread of their lives had been cut off. They had no more needs or desires. Even in death, mothers held their children tightly in their arms. There were no more friends or foes. There was no more jealousy. All were equal. There was no longer any beauty or ugliness, for they all were yellow from the gas. There were no longer any rich or poor, for they all were equal before God's throne. And why all this? I keep asking myself that question. My life is hard, very hard. But I must live on to tell the world about all this barbarism. #Quote by Jankiel Wiernik
Jealousy quotes by Dalai Lama
#14. Anger, jealousy, impatience, and hatred are the real troublemakers, with them problems cannot be solved. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Jealousy quotes by Robert E. Howard
#15. When the oceans drown the world, women will take time for jealousy. #Quote by Robert E. Howard
Jealousy quotes by Aleksandr Voinov
#16. And so he sat, waited in the silent night, occasionally checkin his watch to stay awake, and letting his mind wanter once more. Across the decades, across the countries and across the wars. His family, his friends, the sex he'd shared and the love he'd known. Lust and laughter, anger and jealousy, and a thousand other things, and he smiled in the end. If they got him this time, at least he had lived and he regretted nothing. (Dan) #Quote by Aleksandr Voinov
Jealousy quotes by James Frey
#17. But love is different for every person. For some it's hate, for some it's joy, for some it's fear, for some it's jealousy, for some it's torture, for some it's peace. For some it's everything. #Quote by James Frey
Jealousy quotes by Stephen Ambrose
#18. Friendships are different from all other relationships. Unlike acquaintanceship, friendship is based on love. Unlike lovers and married couples, it is free of jealousy. Unlike children and parents, it knows neither criticism nor resentment. Friendship has no status in law. Business partnerships are based on a contract. So is marriage. Parents are bound by law. But friendships are freely entered into, freely given, and freely exercised ... #Quote by Stephen Ambrose
Jealousy quotes by Amanda Quick
#19. In my experience there are only a handful of reasons for murder ... Jealousy, vengeance, greed, fear and pleasure ... Some killers enjoy the kill ... For them it is a great game, and for the most part they are the ones I hunt. #Quote by Amanda Quick
Jealousy quotes by Francine Prose

Jealousy quotes by Rivers Cuomo
#21. Miley Cyrus' 'Party in the USA' kills me with jealousy. The melodies are out-of-control beautiful. #Quote by Rivers Cuomo
Jealousy quotes by Michel Pastoureau
#22. Some bears are sold for amazing sums at auction. An example is a very old stuffed individual named Mabel that had belonged to Elvis Presley (as a child or an adult?) and had been sold at auction several times after the King's death; it was made in the Steiff workshop in 1909. Its end was exceedingly sinister. Lent by its owner for an exhibition of stuffed bears in Wells, England, in which it was to be the star attraction, it provoked a hatred or jealousy of a young Doberman accompanying the night watchman after the first day of the exhibition. The dog seized the precious relic and furiously bit and clawed it to pieces. (252) #Quote by Michel Pastoureau
Jealousy quotes by Charles Bukowski
#23. It was like any other relationship, there was jealousy on both sides, there were split-ups and reconciliations. there were also fragmented moments of great peace and beauty. I often tried to get away from her and she tied to get away from me but it was difficult: Cupid, in his strange way, was really there. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Jealousy quotes by Marcel Proust
#24. One morning indeed, I felt a sudden misgiving that she not only had left the house but had gone for good: I had just heard the sound of a door which seemed to me to be that of her room. On tiptoe I crept towards the room, opened the door, stood upon the threshold. In the dim light the bedclothes bulged in a semi-circle, that must be Albertine who, with her body bent, was sleeping with her feet and face to the wall. Only, overflowing the bed, the hair upon that head, abundant and dark, made me realise that it was she, that she had not opened her door, had not stirred, and I felt that this motionless and living semi-circle, in which a whole human life was contained and which was the only thing to which I attached any value, I felt that it was there, in my despotic possession. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Jealousy quotes by Jacques-Benigne Bossuet
#25. The spirit of the world encloses four kinds of spirits, diametrically opposed to charity
the spirit of resentment, spirit of aversion, spirit of jealousy and the spirit of indifference. #Quote by Jacques-Benigne Bossuet
Jealousy quotes by Osho
#26. The truly religious person controls nothing, represses nothing. If you are a truly religious person you try to understand, not to control. You become more meditative, you watch your anger, your sex, your greed, your jealousy, your possessiveness. You watch all these poisonous things that surround you, simply watch, try to understand what anger is, and in that very understanding you transcend. You become a witness, and in that witnessing the anger melts as if the sun has risen and the snow has started melting. Understanding #Quote by Osho
Jealousy quotes by Martha Albrand
#27. There are as many jealousies in life as there are different flowers or trees or animals. #Quote by Martha Albrand
Jealousy quotes by Sarah Van Waterschoot
#28. Jealousy shows weakness and we must be strong to except ourselves for who we truly are. #Quote by Sarah Van Waterschoot
Jealousy quotes by Edward Thomson
#29. Go to the family where darkness and suspicion and jealousy and disorder reign, and if they will but receive Christ, mark how light and confidence and order and peace spring up. Go to the regions of superstition and idolatry, and see what transformations are effected by Jesus. #Quote by Edward Thomson
Jealousy quotes by Agatha Christie
#30. Jealousy, you know, is usually not an affair of causes. It is much more-how shall I say?-fundamental than that. Based on the knowledge that one's love is not returned. And so one goes on waiting, watching, expecting ... that the loved one will turn to someone else. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Jealousy quotes by Victoria Scott
#31. I wonder if Blue knows she's repainting her room.I wonder if he's asking if she wants a ride to the party tonight.I wonder if he knows what being strangled feels like. #Quote by Victoria Scott
Jealousy quotes by Anna Godbersen
#32. What was it about that short creature with her wild hair and spurious air of purity and why would anyone much less two men love her and to such disastrous ends. #Quote by Anna Godbersen
Jealousy quotes by H.L. Mencken
#33. Jealousy is the theory that some other fellow has just as little taste. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Jealousy quotes by Sylvia Day
#34. I won't lie. I want to beat the hell out of any man who's had you - you'd be smart to keep them the hell away from me - but nothing in your past can change how I feel about you. #Quote by Sylvia Day
Jealousy quotes by Abigail Adams
#35. It is really mortifying, sir, when a woman possessed of a common share of understanding considers the difference of education between the male and female sex, even in those families where education is attended to ... Nay why should your sex wish for such a disparity in those whom they one day intend for companions and associates. Pardon me, sir, if I cannot help sometimes suspecting that this neglect arises in some measure from an ungenerous jealousy of rivals near the throne. #Quote by Abigail Adams
Jealousy quotes by Takayuki Yamaguchi
#36. He had been dazzled. Because of the dazzling brightness, he had had to kill [Seigen]. All who had encountered Seigen had had their hearts stolen by that brightness. That envy had turned to malice. #Quote by Takayuki Yamaguchi
Jealousy quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#37. People who hate you because of a mere jealousy over your success hurt themselves in disguise. This is because you carry an image of who they wish they had become. Don't hate them back because they may also become like you one day and it will mean hurting that image you carry! #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Jealousy quotes by Harold S. Kushner
#38. Perhaps that is the only cure for jealousy, to realize that the people we resent and envy for having what we lack, probably have wounds
and scars of their own. They may even be envying us. #Quote by Harold S. Kushner
Jealousy quotes by Maurice De Vlaminck
#39. I knew neither jealousy nor hate but was possessed by a rage to recreate a new world, the world which my eyes perceived, a world all to myself. I was poor but I knew that life is beautiful. #Quote by Maurice De Vlaminck
Jealousy quotes by George William Curtis
#40. There is very little moral mixture in the 'Antislavery' feeling of this country. A great deal is abstract philanthropy; part is hatred of slaveholders; a great part is jealousy for white labor, very little is consciousness of wrong done and the wish to right it. #Quote by George William Curtis
Jealousy quotes by Peter Deunov
#41. What does jealousy indicate? Jealousy is love manifested in the physical world. If you are jealous you have a debt to pay; if someone is jealous of you, he has a debt to pay to you. #Quote by Peter Deunov
Jealousy quotes by Erica Jong
#42. Is there not an Arabick Proverb which goes, 'No one throws Stones at a Barren Tree'? #Quote by Erica Jong
Jealousy quotes by Radostin Chernev
#43. The jealousy and evilness are like worms, that destroy the soul. #Quote by Radostin Chernev
Jealousy quotes by Louise Erdrich
#44. She gave her husband such a night of sexual pleasure that his eyes followed her constantly after that, narrow and hot. He grew molten when she passed near other men, and at night they made their own shaking tent. They got teased too much and moved farther off, into the brush, into the nesting ground of shy and holy loons. There, no one could hear them. In solitude they made love until they became gaunt and hungry, pale windigos with aching eyes, tongues of flame. #Quote by Louise Erdrich
Jealousy quotes by Kristin Cashore
#45. Archer always had enough jealousy of his own to turn me off to the feeling of it. #Quote by Kristin Cashore
Jealousy quotes by Anonymous
#46. A relaxed attitude lengthens a man's life; jealousy rots it away. #Quote by Anonymous
Jealousy quotes by Laura Z. Hobson
#47. Any life he'd ever heard of, his own included, was burdened with emotions - love, loss, jobs, jealousy, money, death, pain. But if you were Jewish, always there was this extra one, the added pull at your endurance, the one more thing. There was that line in Thoreau about 'quiet desperation' - that was indeed true of most men. But for some men and women, for some fathers and mothers and children, the world still contrived that one extra test, endless and unrelenting. #Quote by Laura Z. Hobson
Jealousy quotes by V.C. Andrews
#48. You can't love anyone without pain, the pain of jealousy and the pain of loss. It will always be under your skin and in your heart waiting to pounce. #Quote by V.C. Andrews
Jealousy quotes by Dima Zales
#49. His control lasted long enough for Larn to exit the room. As soon as the door closed behind him, Barson headed to the corner where a sand-filled potato sack was hanging from the ceiling. His hands clenched into massive fists, red-hot jealousy filling every inch of his body. Unable to contain himself any longer, he lashed out, punching the bag over and over again, until his knuckles were sore and sweat ran down his back. Pausing, he ripped off his tunic, and then continued, venting his rage with furious blows. #Quote by Dima Zales
Jealousy quotes by James Patterson
#50. I'm not comfortable in this stadium," I explained, trying to look calm.
"I know. And you hate Fang looking at those girls. But we're still having
fun, and Fang still loves you, and you'll still save the world. Okay? #Quote by James Patterson
Jealousy quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#51. Meditation is the most extraordinary thing if you know how to do it, and you cannot possibly learn from anybody; and that's the beauty of it. It isn't something you learn, a technique, and therefore there is no authority. Therefore if you will learn about yourself, watch yourself, watch the way you walk, the way you talk, how you eat, what you say, the gossip, the hate, the jealousy. If you are aware of it without any choice, all that is part of meditation, and as you go, as you journey, as that movement goes, all that movement is meditation. Then that movement is endless, timeless. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Jealousy quotes by Sean Covey
#52. Instead of playing to win, I was playing not to lose. It reminds me of the story I once heard about two friends being chased by a bear, when one turned to the other and said, I just realized that I don't need to outrun the bear; I only need to outrun you. #Quote by Sean Covey
Jealousy quotes by Aaron Hill
#53. First, then, a woman will, or won't, - depend on't; If she will do't, she will; and there's an end on't. But, if she won't, since safe and sound your trust is, Fear is affront: and jealousy injustice. #Quote by Aaron Hill
Jealousy quotes by B.J. Richardson
#54. Let us not look at the talents we wish we had or pine away for the gifts that are not ours but instead do the best we can with what we have. #Quote by B.J. Richardson
Jealousy quotes by Sathya Sai Baba
#55. We must seek ways to solve difficulties such as hatred, envy and jealousy. #Quote by Sathya Sai Baba
Jealousy quotes by Charles F. Glassman
#56. Staring at the light of another blinds the view of our own. #Quote by Charles F. Glassman
Jealousy quotes by Sam Owen
#57. Jealousy of another means you need to work on making you proud of yourself. #Quote by Sam Owen
Jealousy quotes by Woodrow Wilson
#58. My urgent advice to you would be, not only always to think first of America, but always, also, to think first of humanity. You do not love humanity if you seek to divide humanity into jealous camps. Humanity can be welded together only by love, by sympathy, by justice, not by jealousy and hatred. I am sorry for the man who seeks to make personal capital out of the passions of his fellowmen. He has lost touch with the ideal of America. For America was created to unit mankind ... #Quote by Woodrow Wilson
Jealousy quotes by Virginia Alison
#59. A hint of jealously once in a while is not only natural but a compliment therefore, always smile and accept it graciously for it shows they care... #Quote by Virginia Alison
Jealousy quotes by Criss Jami
#60. Their doubt is your fuel for dreams. You just have to drive. #Quote by Criss Jami
Jealousy quotes by Aron Ra
#61. No god worthy of worship would be associated with such character flaws as vanity, jealousy, vengeance, or wrath. God should be above such deadly sins and would not be encumbered by them. #Quote by Aron Ra
Jealousy quotes by Floyd Dell
#62. I thought that jealousy was an idea. It isn't. It's a pain. But I didn't feel as they do in a Broadway melodrama. I didn't want to kill anybody. I just wanted to die. #Quote by Floyd Dell
Jealousy quotes by Osho
#63. Compare, go on comparing yourself with everybody else you pass by, and a great jealousy will be the outcome. It is the by-product of the conditioning for comparison. Otherwise, if you drop comparing, jealousy disappears. Then you simply know you are you, and you are nobody else, and there is no need. #Quote by Osho
Jealousy quotes by Kassi Jo
#64. Jealousy isn't always seeing someone having something better or seeing the one you love with someone else. Sometimes it's knowing he's seen the cashier at Taco Bell more times this week than he's told you about and you wish you could be standing there with your arms around him so they knew... #Quote by Kassi Jo
Jealousy quotes by Napoleon Hill
#65. THE SEVEN MAJOR NEGATIVE EMOTIONS (To be avoided) The emotion of FEAR The emotion of JEALOUSY The emotion of HATRED The emotion of REVENGE The emotion of GREED The emotion of SUPERSTITION The emotion of ANGER #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Jealousy quotes by James Madison
#66. We maintain therefore that in matters of Religion, no man's right is abridged by the institution of Civil Society, and that Religion is wholly exempt from its cognizance. True it is, that no other rule exists, by which any question which may divide a Society, can be ultimately determined, but the will of the majority; but it is also true, that the majority may trespass on the rights of the minority.

...Because it is proper to take alarm at the first experiment on our liberties. We hold this prudent jealousy to be the first duty of Citizens, and one of the noblest characteristics of the late Revolution. The free men of America did not wait till usurped power had strengthened itself by exercise, and entangled the question in precedents. They saw all the consequences in the principle, and they avoided the consequences by denying the principle. We revere this lesson too much soon to forget it. Who does not see that the same authority which can establish Christianity, in exclusion of all other Religions, may establish with the same ease any particular sect of Christians, in exclusion of all other Sects? that the same authority which can force a citizen to contribute three pence only of his property for the support of any one establishment, may force him to conform to any other establishment in all cases whatsoever?

...Because experience witnesseth that ecclesiastical establishments, instead of maintaining the purity and efficacy of Religion, have had a contra #Quote by James Madison
Jealousy quotes by Isabel Allende
#67. He had always suspected that on her travels she had taken a lover, or perhaps even several, but the confirmation of this longstanding, serious love awoke in him retrospective jealousy that would have destroyed the happiness of the moment had Roser allowed it. With her implacable common sense, she showed him that she had not robbed him of anything to give to Aitor. She had not loved him any the less, because that love was always hidden in another chamber of her heart and didn't interfere with the rest of her life. #Quote by Isabel Allende
Jealousy quotes by Rajneesh
#68. But people try love and because they are unconscious ... their longing is good, but their love is full of jealousy, full of possessiveness, full of anger, full of nastiness. Soon they destroy it. Hence for centuries they have depended on marriage. Better to start by marriage so that the law can protect you from destroying it. The society, the government, the court, the policeman, the priest, they will all force you to live in the institution of marriage, and you will be just a slave. If marriage is an institution, you are going to be a slave in it. Only slaves want to live in institutions. #Quote by Rajneesh
Jealousy quotes by Bernard Levin
#69. If you cannot understand my argument, and declare "It's Greek to me", you are quoting Shakespeare; if you claim to be more sinned against than sinning, you are quoting Shakespeare; if you recall your salad days, you are quoting Shakespeare; if you act more in sorrow than in anger; if your wish is farther to the thought; if your lost property has vanished into thin air, you are quoting Shakespeare; if you have ever refused to budge an inch or suffered from green-eyed jealousy, if you have played fast and loose, if you have been tongue-tied, a tower of strength, hoodwinked or in a pickle, if you have knitted your brows, made a virtue of necessity, insisted on fair play, slept not one wink, stood on ceremony, danced attendance (on your lord and master), laughed yourself into stitches, had short shrift, cold comfort or too much of a good thing, if you have seen better days or lived in a fool's paradise -why, be that as it may, the more fool you , for it is a foregone conclusion that you are (as good luck would have it) quoting Shakespeare; if you think it is early days and clear out bag and baggage, if you think it is high time and that that is the long and short of it, if you believe that the game is up and that truth will out even if it involves your own flesh and blood, if you lie low till the crack of doom because you suspect foul play, if you have your teeth set on edge (at one fell swoop) without rhyme or reason, then - to give the devil his due - if the truth were known (f #Quote by Bernard Levin
Jealousy quotes by Nitya Prakash
#70. Someone shouldn't need to be faced with your absence to value your presence. #Quote by Nitya Prakash
Jealousy quotes by Parul Sehgal
#71. When we get jealous, we tell stories to ourselves about other people. Jealousy makes you look for intensity rather than accuracy. #Quote by Parul Sehgal
Jealousy quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#72. Those that achieve anything that looks beyond the vision and thinking of their peers provoke jealousy and hatred disguised as the ordinary. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Jealousy quotes by Tanith Lee
#73. Hatred and jealousy must find a tongue; only the creatures which never feel those things have no need to talk. #Quote by Tanith Lee
Jealousy quotes by Ching Hai
#74. Sometimes, if we are faced with obstacles, be they tangible or not, such as jealousy, worldly sentiment, greed, hatred or obsession, etc., there is no other way to overcome them except by practicing more diligently. You need to read Master's books and to listen to Master's tapes more often, meditate more, do Quan Yin more, put more effort into your practice and concentrate more on the path of practice. It is safe only when you are sheltered by the supreme power, no other way. #Quote by Ching Hai
Jealousy quotes by Anushka Bhartiya
#75. Just when she was about to reemerge from the depths of her sorrows, someone shook her again. This wasn't the jolt that usually awakens the senses. This was what it takes to finally rise over all that is petty about this world. Jealousy, insecurity and of course, betrayal. Awakening the senses was meant for another day, another time. #Quote by Anushka Bhartiya
Jealousy quotes by Suzy Kassem
#76. If only you could see the greatness in yourself, you wouldn't envy the greatness in others. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Jealousy quotes by Arthur Golden
#77. Passion can quickly slip to jealousy, or even hatred. #Quote by Arthur Golden
Jealousy quotes by Anne Bronte
#78. You may think it all very fine, Mr. Huntingdon, to amuse yourself with rousing my jealousy; but take care you don't rouse my hate instead. And when you have once extinguished my love, you will find it no easy matter to kindle it again. #Quote by Anne Bronte
Jealousy quotes by Chetan Bhagat
#79. Jealousy is a rather enjoyable emotion to watch. #Quote by Chetan Bhagat
Jealousy quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#80. Jealousy according to his notions was an insult to one's wife, and one ought to have confidence in one's wife #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Jealousy quotes by Jacques Lacan
#81. Even if what a jealous husband claims about his wife (that she sleeps around with other men) is all true, his jealousy is still pathological. #Quote by Jacques Lacan
Jealousy quotes by Max Beerbohm
#82. Our hero's unreasoning rage was fed by a not unreasonable jealousy. It was clear to him that Zuleika had forgotten his existence. To-day, as soon as he had killed her love, she had shown him how much less to her was his love than the crowd's. And now again it was only the crowd she cared for. He followed with his eyes her long slender figure as she threaded her way in and out of the crowd, sinuously, confidingly, producing a penny from one lad's elbow, a threepenny-bit from between another's neck and collar, half a crown from another's hair, and always repeating in that flute-like voice of hers: Well, this is rather queer! #Quote by Max Beerbohm
Jealousy quotes by David Mitchell
#83. But love's not just the drug; it's also the dealer. Love wants love in return, am I right, Olly? Like drugs, the highs look divine, and I envy the users. But when the side effects kick in - jealousy, the rages, grief, I think, Count me out. Elizabethans equated romantic love with insanity. Buddhists view it as a brat throwing a tantrum at the picnic of the calm mind. #Quote by David Mitchell
Jealousy quotes by Sharon Shinn
#84. She had something I could not have, and so I resented her - but I realized the fault was mine and not hers. #Quote by Sharon Shinn
Jealousy quotes by Jeanine Tesori
#85. I realized that all you have to do is state what you need and figure out how to get it, and be kind and help other people move forward. Check your jealousy, which is always present, and the threat of the younger generation coming forward as they must do. #Quote by Jeanine Tesori
Jealousy quotes by Mercy Brown
#86. Are you busy?" I ask.

"I'm working on a paper. Recall? The phone conversation we had fifteen minutes ago?"

I glance up at a clock in the hall, and then back at his smart-ass mouth.

"It was twenty minutes ago."

"I need coffee," he says, and why is he being such an adorable dick, still smiling at me like that? "Want to walk up to Dunkin' Donuts?"

"What about Millie?" I say.

"What about her?"

"Does she want any?"

"Should we call her and ask?"

"Isn't she upstairs?"

"How hard did you hit your head last night? #Quote by Mercy Brown
Jealousy quotes by Olaf Stapledon
#87. Sometimes Love seemed to us its essential character, and we imagined it with the forms of all the Christs of all the worlds, the human Christs, the Echinoderm and Nautiloid Christs, the dual Christ of the Symbiotics, the swarming Christ of the Insectoids. But equally it appeared to us as unreasoning Creativity, at once blind and subtle, tender and cruel, caring only to spawn and spawn the infinite variety of beings, conceiving here and there among a thousand inanities a fragile loveliness. This it might for a while foster with maternal solicitude, till in a sudden jealousy of the excellence of its own creature, it would destroy what it had made. #Quote by Olaf Stapledon
Jealousy quotes by Anna Godbersen
#88. Gossip is just a tool to distract people who have nothing better to do from feeling jealous of those few of us still remaining with noble hearts. #Quote by Anna Godbersen
Jealousy quotes by Craig Stone
#89. A watched pot never boils, but if I took my eyes from these negative thoughts for a second they would spill over the edges of my lips, and boil the beautiful moment alive as we lived it. #Quote by Craig Stone
Jealousy quotes by Lea Rivera Caguinguin
#90. A good worker knows how to be seen, yet remain invisible. They achieved invisibility by never showing up how good they are. But some people hate it & jealousy is evident. #Quote by Lea Rivera Caguinguin
Jealousy quotes by Colette
#91. I heard on their lips the language of passion, of betrayal and jealousy, and sometimes despair - languages with which I was all too familiar. #Quote by Colette
Jealousy quotes by Sarah Sundin
#92. Jealousy destroyed all it touched, and Ray refused to indulge #Quote by Sarah Sundin
Jealousy quotes by C. G. Jung
#93. The decisive question for man is: Is he related to something infinite or not? That is the telling question of his life. Only if we know that the thing which truly matters is the infinite can we avoid fixing our interests upon futilities, and upon all kinds of goals which are not of real importance. Thus we demand that the world grant us recognition for qualities which we regard as personal possessions: our talent or our beauty. The more a man lays stress on false possessions, and the less sensitivity he has for what is essential, the less satisfying is his life. He feels limited because he has limited aims, and the result is envy and jealousy. If we understand and feel that here in this life we already have a link with the infinite, desires and attitudes change. #Quote by C. G. Jung
Jealousy quotes by YellowBella
#94. Love is an indescribable, cumbersome, silly-selfish, consuming, life-changing, goosebump-making, knowing-all-the-words-to-the-song exciting, I-can't-think-straight-without-him overwhelming, sigh-swooning, laugh-out-loud-for-no-reason anxious, fun, rule-causing, jealousy-inducing, leg-kicking, dream-giving, wonderful, filling, shake-trembling, wonder-where-you-are-always obsessive, necessary, requiring, joyful-flow. #Quote by YellowBella
Jealousy quotes by Dorothy Corkille Briggs
#95. The surest route to breeding jealousy is to compare. Since jealousy comes from feeling less than another, comparisons only fan the fires. #Quote by Dorothy Corkille Briggs
Jealousy quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#96. What makes the pain we feel from shame and jealousy so cutting is that vanity can give us no assistance in bearing them. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Jealousy quotes by Vann Chow
#97. It was lonely to be so perfect in all respects. #Quote by Vann Chow
Jealousy quotes by Esther Verhoef
#98. Wonderful art can spring from misery,I'm the last person to deny that.I'd go even further:the best works of art of all time are probably stemmed from the deep human sorrow or hellish frustration,the death of a loved one or a divorce and yes:jealousy.Heartache and impotence as the man-spring for making the unverifiable verifiable and for giving it face.How romantic,beautiful and especially useful pain and misery can be. #Quote by Esther Verhoef
Jealousy quotes by James Lee Burke
#99. Forget morality tales and all the fury and mire of human complexity, and follow the money. It will lead you through urban legends about sex and revenge and jealousy and the acquisition of power over others, but ultimately, it will lead you to the issue from which all the other motivations derive - money, piles of it, green and lovely and cascading like leaves out of a beneficent sky, money and money and money, the one item that human beings will go to any lengths to acquire. #Quote by James Lee Burke
Jealousy quotes by Rajneesh
#100. Comparison is a very foolish attitude, because each person is unique and incomparable. Once this understanding settles in you, jealousy disappears. #Quote by Rajneesh
Jealousy quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#101. There is something to be said for jealousy, because it only designs the preservation of some good which we either have or think wehave a right to. But envy is a raging madness that cannot bear the wealth or fortune of others. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Jealousy quotes by Socrates
#102. ...[Y]ou know very well the truth of what I [say]... I have incurred a great deal of bitter hostility; and this is what will bring about my destruction, if anything does... the slander and jealousy of a very large section of the people. They have been fatal to a great many other innocent men, and I suppose will continue to be so; there is no likelihood that they will stop at me. But perhaps someone will say 'Do you feel no compunction, Socrates, at having followed a line of action which puts you in danger of the death-penalty?' I might fairly reply to him 'You are mistaken, my friend, if you think that a man who is worth anything ought to spend his time weighing up the prospects of life and death. He has only one thing to consider in performing any action; that is, whether he is acting rightly or wrongly, like a good man or a bad one...['] The truth of the matter is this, gentlemen. Where a man has once taken up his stand, either because it seems best to him or in obedience to his orders, there I believe he is bound to remain and face the danger, taking no account of death or anything else before dishonour. #Quote by Socrates
Jealousy quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#103. No fair-minded girl objects to a certain tinge of jealousy. Kept within proper bounds, it is a compliment; it makes for piquancy; it is the gin in the ginger-beer of devotion. But it should be a condiment, not a fluid. #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
Jealousy quotes by Kobo Abe
#104. There are apparently two hypotheses about jealousy: that it is a product of civilization and that it is a basic instinct of animals. #Quote by Kobo Abe
Jealousy quotes by Joseph Addison
#105. Jealousy is that pain which a man feels from the apprehension that he is not equally beloved by the person whom he entirely loves. #Quote by Joseph Addison
Jealousy quotes by Charlotte Munro
#106. You can wait as long as you like, pretty one, it won't make any difference. He will never see you as anything more than some victim he has to protect. Why he thinks it his duty to protect you from the inevitable, I do not know ... unless he knows something we do not ... #Quote by Charlotte Munro
Jealousy quotes by Jacent Mary Mpalyenkana
#107. People who are so good at doing nothing, are also so good at telling you what's wrong with whatever you are doing. #Quote by Jacent Mary Mpalyenkana
Jealousy quotes by Gary Zukav
#108. When you feel yourself in the grip of an emotion such as jealousy or anger or sorrow, detach yourself from it. Take a step back. When you do that, you can allow the emotion to run through you without causing negative thoughts or actions. #Quote by Gary Zukav
Jealousy quotes by Miguel Ruiz
#109. The power of the word is completely misused in hell. We use the word to curse, to blame, to find guilt, to destroy. Of course, we also use it in the right way, but not too often. Mostly we use the word to spread our personal poison - to express anger, jealousy, envy, and hate. The word is pure magic - the most powerful gift we have as humans - and we use it against ourselves. We plan revenge. We create chaos with the word. We use the word to create hate between different races, between different people, between families, between nations. We misuse the word so often, and this misuse is how we create and perpetuate the dream of hell. Misuse of the word is how we pull each other down and keep each other in a state of fear and doubt. #Quote by Miguel Ruiz
Jealousy quotes by Greg Dening
#110. Reading. The erotics of reading for me -- its moment of trembling pleasure -- lie in those times when I realise that what I am reading is just what I was about to say. It is a moment of jealousy and disappointment, as if the occasion had been stolen from me, but it is a moment of excitement, too -- because I think I would like to try and say it better, because now the monologue in my mind has become dialogue. My immediate impulse is to write something, anything, notes to tell me the significance of what I have read, an appreciative letter to the author, the first sentences in a preface to a book that will never be written. Th archives of my readings are monumentally high. I can never let these erotic moments go. They are the paper trail of my mind. #Quote by Greg Dening
Jealousy quotes by B.C. Forbes
#111. Jealousy ... is a mental cancer. #Quote by B.C. Forbes
Jealousy quotes by Aniruddha Sastikar
#112. Being hated isn't easy, you know. You just cannot falter meeting their expectations. #Quote by Aniruddha Sastikar
Jealousy quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#113. 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
Jealousy quotes by Andrena Sawyer
#114. If you see something dynamic in another person, speak up. It's time to stop letting haters set the precedent, while negativity becomes the default setting. #Quote by Andrena Sawyer
Jealousy quotes by Honore De Balzac
#115. In Paris every man must have had a love affair. What woman wants something that no other woman ever wanted. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Jealousy quotes by Lyra Parish
#116. Love is kisses and touches and all the little things that make your body flood with emotions such as need, want, protectiveness, jealousy, hurt, and anger. It can take your breath away, or smother you at times, and make you feel like you can't go on. Your heart may race a thousand miles per minute, then slow down, and then race again, just with a simple look. Love is deadly and can kill you from the inside out if you let it. It makes you do stupid, ridiculous things, and say senseless sappy words, or listen to silly love songs, jazz, or dance in the streets, or laugh, or smile. Love is a weapon, or a drug, and can drive a person mad. I know what love is ... #Quote by Lyra Parish
Jealousy quotes by Beth Moore
#117. Love motivates self-less jealousy. God is jealous on our behalf. He is jealous for us to know the One True God. He is jealous for us to be in a posture of blessing. He is jealous for us to be kept from the evil one. He is jealous for us to be ready for our Bridegroom. Jealousy for someone's best is of God. Jealousy of someone's best is of the enemy. #Quote by Beth Moore
Jealousy quotes by Julia Quinn
#118. I very specifically told you to stay away from Ned Blydon."
"I chose not to follow your advice. Ned is a very nice person. Handsome, personable - a perfect escort."
"That is precisely why I wanted you to keep him at arm's length. #Quote by Julia Quinn
Jealousy quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#119. Jealousy contains more of self-love than of love. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Jealousy quotes by William Goldman
#120. Flailing and thrashing, Buttercup wept and tossed and paced and wept some more, and there have been three great cases of jealousy since David of Galilee was first afflicted with the emotion when he could no longer stand the fact that his neighbor Saul's cactus outshone his own. (Originally, jealousy pertained solely to plants, other people's cactus or ginkgoes, or, later, when there was grass, grass, which is why, even to this day, we say that someone is green with jealousy.) Buttercup's case rated a close fourth on the all-time list.
It was a very long and very green night. #Quote by William Goldman
Jealousy quotes by Hub
#121. Sadly, there are many forces more powerful and devestating than love... Among them for example, the anger and jealousy of a spurned husband or lover. Fire begets passions, but it also burns. #Quote by Hub
Jealousy quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#122. At the root of every form of ungodliness, injustice, nepotism, selfishness, every rivalry and competitive jealousy, is the monster called greed. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Jealousy quotes by Veronica Roth
#123. Oh. I just assumed ... That because I am so absorbed by him everyone must be too. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Jealousy quotes by Mason Cooley
#124. I am no longer in love, but I still have my jealousy. #Quote by Mason Cooley
Jealousy quotes by James McAvoy
#125. At the heart of every really good Christmas movie is the threat, I suppose, to Christmas. Something is wrong with Christmas, in all of these movies. In 'The Polar Express,' there's a kid that doesn't really believe, and that's the threat to Christmas. In 'Santa Claus: The Movie,' jealousy and greed are threatening to overrun his Christmas. #Quote by James McAvoy
Jealousy quotes by Lisa Wingate
#126. I began to see the magic of Jocelyn's horse psychology school. You couldn't put on airs with a horse, as we so often do with people. Horses look through the masks we wear and the things we say. They see who we really are. They gauge our intentions in a thousand invisible ways that have nothing to do with the words we say. They shy away from the barriers of fear, self-centeredness, jealousy, anger, impatience. They are drawn in by kindness, understanding, concern, openness, love.

The thing is, so are people. #Quote by Lisa Wingate
Jealousy quotes by Joe Abercrombie
#127. Perhaps we look at others and see only the things we don't have. #Quote by Joe Abercrombie
Jealousy quotes by Ilona Andrews
#128. A dense wall of greenery bordered it, ... an impenetrable barrier of oaks, evergreen shrubs, blackberry that somehow resisted the frost, and thorns. In the defense department, the witches would make Sleeping Beauty's evil witch weep with jealousy. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Jealousy quotes by Jason Versey
#129. If we want to live perfectly happy lives...we must drive out selfish character tendencies such as pride, ego, vanity, jealousy, lusts, envy and worry. When we learn to live selflessly, putting others before ourselves, committing to what is noble, right and good; treating others with love and compassion...that's when true happiness is experienced. A genuine focus on selflessness cures all and creates an environment for true growth. It's the secret to every great relationship. We gain...when we give up self. Sacrificing one's selfish characteristics through diligent thought, meditation, prayer and action gives life to true love and abounding joy.~Jason Versey #Quote by Jason Versey
Jealousy quotes by Johanna Lindsey
#130. But you know you're sounding like a jealous wife? Are you jealous, luv? I find that rather amusing, all things considered."
"Don't start laughing too soon, because I'm nothing of the sort."
"No?"
He was still grinning, prompting her to snap, "Your unexpected presence here smacks of jealousy as well, as in checking up on your wife, but you don't hear me accusing you of it."
"I believe you just did. #Quote by Johanna Lindsey
Jealousy quotes by Everett Ferguson
#131. One of the reactions to Jesus was the confession, first voiced by the leader of the Twelve, Peter, that "You are the Messiah" (Mark 8:29), the eagerly awaited "anointed of the Lord" who would bring deliverance to the Jewish people. It was a confession welcomed by many, doubted by others, and feared by still others in positions of power. Jesus' popularity provoked jealousy and opposition from some Pharisees and a range of sentiments from uneasiness to profound disturbance among the political leaders. #Quote by Everett Ferguson
Jealousy quotes by Reds Johnson
#132. Jealousy is an ugly trait and sometimes blood ain't no thicker than water. #Quote by Reds Johnson
Jealousy quotes by Matt K. Turner
#133. They were the kind of couple you rolled your eyes at. The couple you wanted to punch square in their perfect noses, but secretly hoped would become your new best friends and invite you to a private dinner party where you'd eat something made with truffle oil and share a rueful laugh about the party scene in Ibiza. #Quote by Matt K. Turner
Jealousy quotes by Amanda Penland
#134. The devil will use fear, pride,jealousy, time wasters, hurt, thoughts, disappointments to get us to turn our eyes away from Jesus. Don't give him a moment in your life. #Quote by Amanda Penland
Jealousy quotes by Jean De La Bruyere
#135. Men are the cause of women not loving one another.
[Fr., Les hommes sont la cause que les femmes ne s'aiment point.] #Quote by Jean De La Bruyere
Jealousy quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#136. Adam felt the familiar pang. Not jealousy, just wanting. One day, he'd have enough money to have a place like this. A place that looked on the outside like Adam looked on the inside. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Jealousy quotes by Deborah Moggach
#137. Remember you are everything, or you are nothing. If you are everything, then your heart is so big it can hold all of humanity within itself, you have no jealousy or narrowness. You are in the heart of every creature and every creature is in your heart. There is only bliss.
Intro to Part 2, Chapter 4. Credit given to Swami Purna. #Quote by Deborah Moggach
Jealousy quotes by Unarine Ramaru
#138. Jealousy is not there to encourage you to make someone fail, but there to encourage one to do more than the one they envy. #Quote by Unarine Ramaru
Jealousy quotes by Ehsan Sehgal
#139. A broken heart cry may touch and shake the heaven; however, not a heart of a cruel one. #Quote by Ehsan Sehgal
Jealousy quotes by Jody Hedlund
#140. Let them go and come back here!" Dirk's voice grew harder with anger. "Or else - " "Or else what?" Carl spun around. He'd had enough of Dirk's threats. Who did the man think he was, anyway, lording over him? Did Dirk relish the fact that for once in his life he had power over a nobleman? "What are you going to do?" he shouted. "What?" Dirk rose from the table. His glare sparked with jealousy. "Are you going to tell them the truth about who I am?" Carl said. "Is that it?" Annalisa stiffened. Peter and Uri stopped eating, their greasy fingers suspended over their plates. "Well, why don't I save you the trouble?" Carl continued. "I'll tell them myself. #Quote by Jody Hedlund
Jealousy quotes by William Peter Blatty
#141. Would you like to hear a nice definition of jealousy? It's the feeling that you get when someone you absolutely detest is having a wonderful time without you. #Quote by William Peter Blatty
Jealousy quotes by Janet Jackson
#142. My parents are very competitive, so we are very competitive as kids. But it's a good kind of competition; it's not a jealousy. You always want to do your best, and if it can't be you, you want it to be your brother or your sister, you know what I mean? #Quote by Janet Jackson
Jealousy quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#143. The will to incessant creation is vulgar, betraying jealousy, envy, and ambition. Assuming that you are something, there is really nothing that you need to do-and yet you do a great deal. Above the "productive" man there is still a higher type. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Jealousy quotes by Larry Rivers
#144. Maybe I was a little jealous or envious of the abstract painters - but the truth was I thought what they were doing was boring. #Quote by Larry Rivers
Jealousy quotes by T.H. White
#145. He, unfortunately for himself, had been beautifully brought up. His teacher had educated him as the child is educated in the womb, where it lives the history of man from fish to mammal
and, like the child in the womb, he had been protected with love meanwhile. The effect of such an education was that he had grown up without any of the useful accomplishments for living
without malice, vanity, suspicion, cruelty, and the commoner forms of selfishness. Jealousy seemed to him the most ignoble of vices. He was sadly unfitted for hating his best friend or torturing his wife. He had been given too much love and trust to be good at these things. #Quote by T.H. White
Jealousy quotes by Willa Cather
#146. These were the distractions I had to choose from. There were no other lights burning downtown after nine o'clock. On starlight nights I used to pace up and down those long, cold streets, scowling at the little, sleeping houses on either side, with their storm-windows and covered back porches. They were flimsy shelters, most of them poorly built of light wood, with spindle porch-posts horribly mutilated by the turning-lathe. Yet for all their frailness, how much jealousy and envy and unhappiness some of them managed to contain! The life that went on in them seemed to me made up of evasions and negations; shifts to save cooking, to save washing and cleaning, devices to propitiate the tongue of gossip. This guarded mode of existence was like living under a tyranny. People's speech, their voices, their very glances, became furtive and repressed. Every individual taste, every natural appetite, was bridled by caution.
The people asleep in those houses, I thought, tried to live like the mice in their own kitchens; to make no noise, to leave no trace, to slip over the surface of things in the dark. The growing piles of ashes and cinders in the back yards were the only evidence that the wasteful, consuming process of life went on at all. On Tuesday nights the Owl Club danced; then there was a little stir in the streets, and here and there one could see a lighted window until midnight. But the next night all was dark again. #Quote by Willa Cather
Jealousy quotes by Gregory David Roberts
#147. Jealousy, like the flawed love that bears it, has no respect for time or space or wisely reasoned argument. #Quote by Gregory David Roberts
Jealousy quotes by Karl Kraus
#148. A man's jealousy is a social institution; a woman's prostitution is an instinct. #Quote by Karl Kraus
Jealousy quotes by Virginia Graham
#149. Maturity gives us jealous eyes. We look with jealousy on the younger woman because she doesn't know as much now as we do, and, oh, what we could do with our wisdom and her face. #Quote by Virginia Graham
Jealousy quotes by Jovieal James
#150. We want to develop the nation
We want to develop the state
We want to develop the society,
But very few of us wants let the
neighbor grow.
Then how could the world will grow. #Quote by Jovieal James
Jealousy quotes by Alcoholics Anonymous
#151. The greatest enemies of us alcoholics are resentment, jealousy, envy, frustration, and fear. #Quote by Alcoholics Anonymous
Jealousy quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#152. In our household doubts more troubling than these were suffered in silence. The spiritual void I have seen in so many of Istanbul's rich, Westernised, secularist families is evident in these silences. Everyone talks openly about mathematics, success at school, football and having fun, but they grapple with the most basic questions of existence - love,compassion, religion, the meaning of life, jealousy, hatred - in trembling confusion and painful solitude. They light a cigarette, give their attention to the music on the radio, return wordlessly to their inner worlds. #Quote by Orhan Pamuk
Jealousy quotes by Chloe Neill
#153. Popularity invites criticism, fuels jealousy. It is, for better or worse, human nature. #Quote by Chloe Neill
Jealousy quotes by Marlon James
#154. Miss Betsy is looking at me. Some jealousy sure, but every woman have that in them #Quote by Marlon James
Jealousy quotes by Paul Eldridge
#155. Jealousy would be far less torturous if we understood that love is a passion entirely unrelated to our merits. #Quote by Paul Eldridge
Jealousy quotes by Matt Ridley
#156. There is no nature that exists devoid of nurture; there is no nurture that develops without nature. To say otherwise is like saying that the area of a field is determined by its length but not its width. Every behavior is the product of an instinct trained by experience.

The study of human beings remained resolutely unreformed by these ideas until a few years ago. Even now, most anthropologists and social scientists are firmly committed to the view that evolution has nothing to tell them. Human bodies are products of "culture," and human culture does not reflect human nature, but the reverse. This restricts social scientists to investigation only differences between cultures and between individuals--and to exaggerating them. Yet what is most interesting to me about human beings is the things that are the same, not what is different--things like grammatical language, hierarchy, romantic love, sexual jealousy, long-term bongs between the genders ("marriage", in a sense). These are trainable instincts peculiar to out species and are just as surely the products of evolution as eyes and thumbs. #Quote by Matt Ridley
Jealousy quotes by Johanna Lindsey
#157. But your habits undergo no change in this pretense? Or do you think anyone was fooled yesterday by your so-called 'appointment' last night? That is what you told your mother, correct? That you had an appointment?"
His eyes came back to hers. "Are we showing signs of jealousy again?"
"I'm asking a pertinent question," she said stiffly. "If you think this pretense is going to only be one-sided, then it ends now."
Incredibly,his humor returned abruptly, his grin quite wide. "Before you start turning green, I suppose I must admit that appointment wasn't a good word for it, since it wasn't a scheduled meeting. I merely went to see my solicitor,and,no, he doesn't wear skirts."
She ignored that ridiculous attempt at a joke. #Quote by Johanna Lindsey
Jealousy quotes by Paul Silway
#158. God is infinitely wealthy. If you see someone with something you want, don't be jealous. Just say to God, "Father if you can do that for him, You can do that for me too! #Quote by Paul Silway
Jealousy quotes by Gene Wolfe
#159. I believe in some sense much akin to the belief of faith, that I noticed, felt, or underwent what I describe - but it may be that the only reason childhood memories act on us so strongly is that, being the most remote we possess, they are the worst remembered and so offer the least resistance to that process by which we mold them nearer and nearer to an ideal which is fundamentally artistic, or at least nonfactual; so it may be that some of these events I describe never occurred at all, but only should have, and that others had not the shades and flavors - for example, of jealousy or antiquity or shame - that I have later unconsciously chosen to give them ... #Quote by Gene Wolfe
Jealousy quotes by Bryant McGill
#160. Impatience, resentment, jealousy and endless "want" are not creative attractors and have no value. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Jealousy quotes by Carol Rifka Brunt
#161. I needed to know that my mother understood that her hand was in this too. That all the jealousy and envy and shame we carried was our own kind of sickness. As much a disease as Toby and Finn's AIDS. #Quote by Carol Rifka Brunt
Jealousy quotes by Pete Fountain
#162. What we used to say was whoever had the bow tie got to lead the band. There was never any jealousy. #Quote by Pete Fountain
Jealousy quotes by Rosie Blythe
#163. Don't hold back because you're afraid of hurting someone else. If your best friend wants to be a cheerleader and you make the team but she doesn't, don't feel guilty. If you end up earning more than your sister, it's not a betrayal. Your success might be an inspiration for someone else, while limiting yourself to avoid upsetting the balance doesn't help anyone. Equally, rather than being paralysed by jealousy when someone else is coming out on top, use it to spur you on to greater things. Some of our best achievements will be triggered by envy at seeing someone else fulfilling our secret ambitions. #Quote by Rosie Blythe
Jealousy quotes by Nalini Singh
#164. Where did you get the control sample?" A flash of dark heat raced through him and he knew himself well enough to identify it as a dose of pure jealousy.
"From Tamsyn." A pause, as if she was debating whether to continue. "I know you'd react negatively if I approached a make. You're ... possessive."
"Sugar, I'm way past possessive." His voice was no longer fully human. #Quote by Nalini Singh
Jealousy quotes by Jennifer L. Armentrout
#165. My first kiss ... and it was everything I'd imagined it to be, with the exception of there being an audience for it. But it was hard to acknowledge them or their cheering and whistles. Flames scorched my already heated skin. Dez's lips moved against mine, working the tight seam open. I gasped, wondering where in the world he'd learned to kiss like that. Jealousy flared like a beacon on the heels of that thought. Okay. I didn't want to know how he'd learned. #Quote by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Jealousy quotes by Vishwas Chavan
#166. Fear, jealousy and anger are manifestations of a lack of being in love. Being in love is possible only when you are in love with yourslef first. Self-love is an inborn quality that has been corroded because of social conditioning. As a result, we forget that love is within is, or rather, we are the source of love. #Quote by Vishwas Chavan
Jealousy quotes by Leslie Jamison
#167. It's easier, somehow, if there's a reason for tragedy - lust or jealousy or hatred or revenge. We can find in these explanations an emotional tenor commensurate with the gravity of the act. There's something we recognize as human, a motive toward which we can direct our rage but can also understand, at some primal level, as an extension of ourselves. #Quote by Leslie Jamison
Jealousy quotes by Stephen Covey
#168. Too many are trying to conquer higher weaknesses such as procrastination, impatience or pride while still being slaves to their appetites. If we can't control the body and its appetites, how can we control our tongues, or overcome the emotions or anger, envy, jealousy, or hatred? #Quote by Stephen Covey
Jealousy quotes by John Geddes
#169. I don't want what other men see in you- you the you I want is invisible but it is the part of you I really love ... #Quote by John Geddes
Jealousy quotes by Giordano Bruno
#170. See how fortune deludes us, and that which we put carefully into her hands, she either breaks or lets it fall from her hands, or causes it to be removed by the violence of another, or suffocates and poisons, or taints with suspicion, fear and jealousy to the great hurt and ruin of the possessor. #Quote by Giordano Bruno
Jealousy quotes by Julia Quinn
#171. Guilty?" George's face betrayed his surprise.
"Whatever for?"
"That neither of your brothers ever offered for me."
Another thing she probably should not have said. But as it happened, Billie did think that Lady Manston felt this way. And when George's expression slid from curiosity to something that might have been jealousy ... well, Billie could not help but feel a little pleased.
"So I think she's trying to make it up to me," she said gamely.
"It's not as if I was waiting for one of them to ask me, but I think she thinks I was, so now she wants to introduce me - "
"Enough," George practically barked.
"I beg your pardon?"
He cleared his throat.
"Enough," he said in a much more evenly tempered voice.
"It's ridiculous."
"That your mother feels this way?"
"That she thinks introducing you to a pack of useless fops is a sensible idea."
Billie took a moment to enjoy this statement. #Quote by Julia Quinn
Jealousy quotes by Debbie Ford
#172. It would be impossible to estimate how much time and energy we invest in trying to fix, change and deny our emotions - especially the ones that shake us at our very core, like hurt, jealousy, loneliness, shame, rage and grief. #Quote by Debbie Ford
Jealousy quotes by Billy Graham
#173. If you have been harboring anger or bitterness or jealousy in your heart toward someone - a parent, an ex-spouse, a boss - hand it over to Christ, and ask Him to help you let it go. #Quote by Billy Graham
Jealousy quotes by Jennifer Ashley
#174. Listen to yourself. Poor martyred Louisa. I predict that Fellows will solve this murder and then sweep you off your feet." Daniel shrugged. "Well, the sweeping-you-off-your-feet part might take a little nudge. But he wants to do it. It's a beautiful thing to watch the way he looks at you. Fellows glared at Gil tonight as though he wanted to find a claymore, learn how to use it, and finish him off. Or just pull out a pistol and shoot him. #Quote by Jennifer Ashley
Jealousy quotes by Arthur C. Clarke
#175. Jealousy is a terrible thing. "It doth mock the meat it feeds upon" is an understatement. Jealousy is completely consuming, totally irrational, and absolutely debilitating. The most wonderful people in the world are nothing but raging animals when trapped in the throes of jealousy. #Quote by Arthur C. Clarke
Jealousy quotes by John Adams
#176. I never engaged in public affairs for my own interest, pleasure, envy, jealousy, avarice or ambition, or even the desire of fame #Quote by John Adams
Jealousy quotes by Alice Miller
#177. The true opposite of depression is neither gaiety nor absence of pain, but vitality - the freedom to experience spontaneous feelings. It is part of the kaleidoscope of life that these feelings are not only happy, beautiful, or good but can reflect the entire range of human experience, including envy, jealousy, rage, disgust, greed, despair, and grief. But this freedom cannot be achieved if its childhood roots are cut off. Our access to the true self is possible only when we no longer have to be afraid of the intense emotional world of early childhood. Once we have experienced and become familiar with this world, it is no longer strange and threatening. #Quote by Alice Miller
Jealousy quotes by H.G.Wells
#178. She had learnt many things since the days of her first rebellion, and she knew now that this matter of the man friend and nothing else in the world is the central issue in the emancipation of women. The difficulty of him is latent in every other restriction of which women complain. The complete emancipation of women will come with complete emancipation of humanity from jealousy - and no sooner. All other emancipations are shams until a woman may go about as freely with this man as with that, and nothing remains for emancipation when she can. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Jealousy quotes by Rachel Caine
#179. Claire hated to say it, but she knew the answer, in her heart. "Because he feels something for me, and he wanted to give me a chance to live. Like him. With him. But I refused."
Shane turned and looked at her, a blank expression on his face that turned quickly into ... something else. Claire was glad Myrnin had gotten out while he still could. "Great," he said. "I knew it."
"It's not like that. He's - " She shook her head in frustration. "It's not like he's in love with me or anything; it's more complicated than that. I don't even think he understands it, exactly."
"Yeah, he only loves you for your mind," Shane said ... #Quote by Rachel Caine
Jealousy quotes by Dee Waldeck
#180. The voice of jealousy strikes from those who aim to hurt you, not those who love you! #Quote by Dee Waldeck
Jealousy quotes by Alessandra Torre
#181. My journey in this relationship hasn't been as difficult as hers, but there were times I struggled. Thank God I didn't walk away when I suspected an affair. Thank God my heart kept an iron grip on her and wouldn't let me move. The frustration, the unknowing, the jealousy… it was grueling, but reinforced one of the first things I said to Lana: 'It was worth it as soon as I saw you'.

And it was. It was more than worth it. It was the start of my life, the day my heart started beating.

I love this woman. I will always love her, as will every part of my soul. #Quote by Alessandra Torre
Jealousy quotes by Amit Ray
#182. There are two types of seeds in the mind: those that create anger, fear, frustration, jealousy, hatred and those that create love, compassion, equanimity and joy. Spirituality is germination and sprouting of the second group and transforming the first group. #Quote by Amit Ray
Jealousy quotes by Marshall Thornton
#183. People say love is the international language. I'd say jealousy and anger are also pretty articulate. #Quote by Marshall Thornton
Jealousy quotes by Elizabeth Gaskell
#184. Margaret was not a ready lover, but where she loved she loved passionately, and with no small degree of jealousy. #Quote by Elizabeth Gaskell
Jealousy quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#185. Men of strong affections are jealous of their own genius. They fear lest they should be loved for a quality, and not for themselves. #Quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Jealousy quotes by Cassandra Clare
#186. Things did change. He'd gone from being eaten up with jealousy of Simon, to a grudging respect for his tenacity and courage, to actually considering him a friend, though he doubted he'd ever say so out loud #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Jealousy quotes by Tijan
#187. Hot guys. Guys who make girls drool. Guys who warrant attention and jealousy. And since we're on the topic, if you ever see me in public, act like you don't know me."

"You're a nutcase."

"Just go right past me." I brushed my hands against each other, going the opposite direction. "Like two passing buses in the night."

"The phrase is two passing ships in the night, and no. I'm not a complete asshole. If I see you in public, I reserve my right to come over and piss you off. I'm starting to get enjoyment from this on the daily."

"No." I almost gasped. "Daily?"

"Daily," he drawled. #Quote by Tijan
Jealousy quotes by James Wallace Birch
#188. You're just an over-privileged kid who couldn't adapt to the fact that your life was good. #Quote by James Wallace Birch
Jealousy quotes by Osho
#189. Any love that is followed by jealousy is certainly not true love, it is biological instinct. #Quote by Osho
Jealousy quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#190. The sure mark of one born with noble qualities is being born without envy. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Jealousy quotes by T.F. Hodge
#191. People you've known, seemingly forever, may claim to have love for you, but when gossip's tainted tongue whips you - they don't show enough love to weigh your history against false witness. Be that as it may, press forward as the dust settles. Your purpose is much bigger than their paltriness. #Quote by T.F. Hodge
Jealousy quotes by Christian Slater
#192. Drama can be an addiction. It's so, so sneaky. Jealousy - all of those things can really send you in a lot of different crazy directions. #Quote by Christian Slater
Jealousy quotes by Michael A. Singer
#193. Wise beings do not want to remain a slave to the fear of pain. They permit the world to be what it is instead of being afraid of it. They wholeheartedly participate in life, but not for the purpose of using life to avoid themselves. If life does something that causes a disturbance inside of you, instead of pulling away, let it pass through you like the wind. After all, things happen every day that cause inner disturbance. At any moment you can feel frustration, anger, fear, jealousy, insecurity, or embarrassment. If you watch, you will see that the heart is trying to push it all away. If you want to be free, you have to learn to stop fighting these human feelings. #Quote by Michael A. Singer
Jealousy quotes by F.D.  Lee
#194. I'm not… What's wrong with them believing?" Bea asked, a note of pleading creeping, uninvited, into her voice.
"You do not sell belief, you sell belief-in. Belief in true love, as if everyone were entitled to it. Belief in a simple solution to a complex problem. Belief in one type of person, one type of future."
"No I don't. I offer people dreams, and hope, and, and, something to organise their lives with," Bea said, not sure why she was trying to convince him. "I don't make them into 'one person'."
"Oh no? Let me recall your doctrine: Kings, Princes and their ilk must marry girls whose only asset is their beauty. Not clever girls, not worthy girls, not girls who could rule. Powerful women, older women – like one day you will become – are nought but wicked creatures, consumed with jealousy and unfit to hold position. No," he said as Bea began to speak, "I am not finished. Let us turn our attention to the men. As long as the woman is something to be won, it follows only the worthy will prevail. It matters not if they truly love the girl, nor if the man is cruel or arrogant or unfit to tie his own doublet. As long as he has wealth and completes whatever trials are decided fit, he is suitable. For what is stupidity or arrogance when compared against a crown? The good will win, and the wicked perish, and you and your stories decide what makes a person good or wicked. Not life. Not choice. Not even common sense. You. #Quote by F.D. Lee
Jealousy quotes by Dalai Lama
#195. Whether we consider the individual, family, local, national or international level, peace must arise from inner peace. For example, making prayers for peace while continuing to harbor anger is futile. Training the mind and overcoming your anger is much more effective than mere prayer. Anger, hatred and jealousy never solve problems, only affection, concern and respect can do that. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Jealousy quotes by Brent Top
#196. Whatever worldly thing we may covet - zealously striving to obtain and then retain - never seems to bring an end to our desires. Covetousness, envy, jealousy, and greed always escalate into a vicious spiral, as we seek greater and greater gratification but find less and less contentment ... Striving to acquire the things of the world not only does not bring lasting happiness and peace, but it drives us to seek more. When "all we've ever wanted" is grounded in the temporal trappings of this world, it is never enough! #Quote by Brent Top
Jealousy quotes by Gayle King
#197. When people don't want the best for you, they are not the best for you. #Quote by Gayle King
Jealousy quotes by Bob Marley
#198. Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you've never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can't wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it's like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn't exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day's work and always brings a smile to your fac #Quote by Bob Marley
Jealousy quotes by Henry Fielding
#199. Nothing can be so quick and sudden as the operations of the mind, especially when hope, or fear, or jealousy, to which the other two are but journeymen, set it to work. #Quote by Henry Fielding
Jealousy quotes by Naguib Mahfouz
#200. It is an indication of truth's jealousy that it has not made for anyone a path to it, and that it has not deprived anyone of the hope of attaining it, and it has left people running in the deserts of perplexity and drowning in the seas of doubt; and he who thinks he has attained it, it dissociates itself from, and he who thinks he has dissociated himself from it has lost his way. #Quote by Naguib Mahfouz
