QUOTES ON ENVY


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

AESCHYLUS, Agamemnon

The envious will die, but envy never.

MOLIÈRE, Tartuffe

I am Envy, begotten of a chimney-sweeper and an oyster-wife. I cannot read, and therefore wish all books were burnt. I am lean with seeing others eat. O, that there would come a famine through all the world, that all might die, and I live alone! Then thou shouldst see how fat I would be.

CHRISTOPHER MARLOWE, Doctor Faustus
