Letter "E" » Envy
«I have also learned why people work so hard to succeed: It is because they envy the things their neighbors have. But it is useless. It is like chasing the wind...It is better to have only a little, with peace of mind, than be busy all the time with both hands, trying to catch the wind.»
«I envy people who drink - at least they know what to blame everything on.»
«Some folks rail against other folks, because other folks have what some folks would be glad of.»
«Pity is for the living, envy is for the dead»
«It stirs up envy, fame does. People feel fame gives them some kind of privilege to walk up to you and say anything to you - and it won't hurt your feelings - like it's happening to your clothing.»

«It is better to want what you have than to have what you want.»
«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»
«Nothing sharpens sight like envy»
