"An envious man waxeth lean with the fatness of his neighbors. Envy is the daughter of pride, the author of murder and revenge, the beginner of secret sedition and the perpeutal tormentor of virtue. Envy is the filthy slime of the soul; a venom, a poison, or quicksilver which consumeth the flesh and drieth up the marrow of the bones. "
Socrates

"The truest mark of being born with great qualities is being born without envy."
La Rochefoucauld

"envy comes from people's ignorance, or lack of belief in, their own gifts."
jean vanier

"Envy is ignorance."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

"It is in the character of very few men to honor without envy a friend who has prospered."
Aeschylus

"Envy is a symptom of lack of appreciation of our own uniqueness and self worth. Each of us has something to give that no one else has."
Elizabeth O'Connor

Envy: The Seven Deadly Sins (New York Public Library Lectures in Humanities)
by Joseph EpsteinSearch for Joseph Epstein
$23.95
$1.24 new/used

Malice that cannot speak its name, cold-blooded but secret hostility, impotent desire, hidden rancor and spite--all cluster at the center of envy. Envy clouds thought, writes Joseph Epstein, clobbers generosity, precludes any hope of serenity, and ends in shriveling the heart. Of the seven deadly sins, he concludes, only envy is no fun at all.
Writing in a conversational, erudite, self-deprecating style that wears its learning lightly, Epstein takes us on a stimulating tour of the many faces of envy. He considers what great thinkers--such as John Rawls, Schopenhauer, and Nietzsche--have written about envy; distinguishes between envy, yearning, jealousy, resentment, and schadenfreude ("a hardy perennial in the weedy garden of sour emotions"); and catalogs the many things that are enviable, including wealth, beauty, power, talent, knowledge and wisdom, extraordinary good luck, and youth (or as the title of Epstein's chapter on youth has it, "The Young, God Damn Them"). He looks at resentment in academia, where envy is mixed with snobbery, stirred by impotence, and played out against a background of cosmic injustice; and he offers a brilliant reading of Othello as a play more driven by Iago's envy than Othello's jealousy. He reveals that envy has a strong touch of malice behind it--the envious want to destroy the happiness of others. He suggests that envy of the astonishing success of Jews in Germany and Austria may have lurked behind the virulent anti-Semitism of the Nazis.
As he proved in his best-selling Snobbery, Joseph Epstein has an unmatched ability to highlight our failings in a way that is thoughtful, provocative, and entertaining. If envy is no fun, Epstein's Envy is truly a joy to read.

It has damaged relationships since the time of Cain and Abel, and still does today if we let it. In this wise and compassionate book, R.T. Kendall tackles, head-on, the sin that no one likes to admit to. He shows that it is only when we grasp that it is God we should aim to please that we will be able to recognize and overcome jealousy and, like Jesus, be jealous only for the glory of God.

by Rob ArlenSearch for Rob Arlen

The Seven Deadly Sins - What They Are And How To Avoid Them

Turning your vices into virtues can be done if you know how

The Seven Deadly Sins have been with us since man and woman fell from grace. Pride, lust, gluttony, anger, envy, sloth and greed - as flawed creatures we are all susceptible to their temptations. What can be done about this?

The Seven Deadly Sins explores the roots of these all too human afflictions and suggests possible courses of action in order to deal with them.

What?s more, when properly understood, these sins can be channeled to produce positive outcomes such as:

  • Using anger from moral injustices to right social wrongs
  • Taking a break (sloth) in order to boost productivity
  • Using envy as a tool for personal improvement
  • Controlling lust to get more out of our stable, monogamous relationships

However you look at it sin has been with man since Adam first took a bite out of the apple. We can never be free of sin so long as we live in the Earthly realm. What we can do, however, is understand the roots of sin and then come up with strategies to control them. It is with this hope that I wrote this little book.

If you feel you need a little help turning your vices into virtues get this book now and start your journey down a better path today!

Envy of Angels (Sin du Jour)
by Matt WallaceSearch for Matt Wallace

In New York, eating out can be hell.

Everyone loves a well-catered event, and the supernatural community is no different, but where do demons go to satisfy their culinary cravings?

Welcome to Sin du Jour - where devils on horseback are the clients, not the dish.

PRAISE FOR ENVY OF ANGELS:

"Matt Wallace tells a raucous, riotous tale of culinary madness - a jaw-dropping horror-fantasy restaurateur Thunderdome that makes the 'monkey brain' scene in Temple of Doom look like something you'd see on Nickelodeon. It's like I dropped a heroic dose of acid and turned on the Food Network for eight hours. It's funny and demented and sticks in you like a pinbone. Matt Wallace writes like someone just jammed a needle full of adrenaline in his heart - and then, in yours. From this point forward, I'll read anything this guy writes."
-Chuck Wendig, author of BLACKBIRDS and ZER0ES

"No one makes me think, 'Dammit, I should have thought of that!' like Matt Wallace. The Sin du Jour series is something I read with equal amounts of envy and delight."
- Mur Lafferty, Campbell Award winning author of THE SHAMBLING GUIDE TO NEW YORK CITY

Killjoys: The Seven Deadly Sins
by Desiring GodSearch for Desiring God
$9.99
$6.84 new/used

Relentless romance. Fierce warfare. Superior pleasure. Our hearts were designed to enjoy a full and forever happiness, not the pitiful temporary pleasures for which we?re too prone to settle. Pride, envy, anger, sloth, greed, gluttony, and lust are woefully inadequate substitutes for the wonder, beauty, and affection of God. They will rob you, not ravish you. They will numb you, not heal you. They will slaughter you, not save you. Killjoys was written to lead you deeper in love with our God and further into war against your sin. The truths, warnings, and promises in these pages are meant to chart a life-giving path to greater holiness and greater joy.
