Don’t try to impress a loser because If one is not happy about the things happening in their life, one cannot be happy about the things happening in someone else’s life.
Jealousy was essentially “I want what you have,” while envy was “I want what you have, but I also want to take it away so you can’t have it.
Never be envious of what someone else has.You don’t know the price they paid to get it, and you don’t know the price they are paying to keep it.
Those who envy the success of others are normally ignorant to the sacrifices, failures, and dedication that it took for them to get there.
There are those who will resent you for not being confined by their limitations.
No bird ever looked at a plane in envy
She was wearing her fuzzy pink hat and she was happy, which was so obnoxious. She’d become one of those people who waltzed through life without so much as a split end, and I was still one of those people who changed diapers for free but still got treated like a rented mule.
I know you don’t think that any tongue I speak is mine; it must be rented. I am always denial, or pretense. A child born mid-flight has no nation. I can pull on either culture, but they always melt like a dream, trickle away, water on the oiled pelt of foreign.
The price of success is to bear the criticism of envy.
Is it not strange that the more someone has, the less he feels he has? Envy can never be sated.
