  Envy Quotes
"With that malignant envy which turns pale, And sickens, even if a friend prevail."
Winston Churchill

"Envy feeds on the living. It ceases when they are dead."
Ovid

"Envy consists in seeing things never in themselves, but only in their relations. If you desire glory, you may envy Napoleon, but Napoleon envied Caesar, Caesar envied Alexander, and Alexander, I daresay, envied Hercules, who never existed."
Bertrand Russell

"Pity is for the living, envy is for the dead"
Mark Twain

"Envy is ever joined with the comparing of a man's self; and where there is no comparison, no envy."
Sir Francis Bacon

"Nothing sharpens sight like envy"
Thomas Fuller

"Pride is seldom delicate, it will please itself with very mean advantages; and envy feels not its own happiness, but when it may be compared with the misery of others"
Dr Samuel Johnson

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

"Jealousy is both reasonable and belongs to reasonable men, while envy is base and belongs to the base, for the one makes himself get good things by jealousy, while the other does not allow his neighbour to have them through envy."
Aristotle

"Love looks through a telescope; envy, through a microscope."
Josh Billings
