"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."
