Our very best friends have a tincture of jealousy even in their friendship; and when they hear us praised by others, will ascribe it to sinister and interested motives if they can.Charles Caleb Colton

Obviously, in dealing with a relationship, sexuality has to be involved, and jealousy and emotions like that. And I don't know, I've always been intrigued by those emotions.Adrian Lyne
What makes the pain we feel from shame and jealousy so cutting is that vanity can give us no assistance in bearing them.Francois de La Rochefoucauld
Jealousy is bred in doubts. When those doubts change into certainties, then the passion either ceases or turns absolute madness.Francois de La Rochefoucauld
But when I would see the surrogate, my first instinct, my first reaction would be jealousy, because she was doing what I wanted to do.Cheryl Tiegs
Addressed To Haydon
High-mindedness, a jealousy for good,
A loving-kindness for the great man's fame,
Dwells here and there with people of no name,
In noisome alley, and in pathless wood:
And where we think the truth least understood,
Oft may be found a "singleness of aim,"
That ought to frighten into hooded shame
A money-mongering, pitiable brood.
How glorious this affection for the cause
Of steadfast genius, toiling gallantly!
What when a stout unbending champion awes
Envy and malice to their native sty?
Unnumbered souls breathe out a still applause,
Proud to behold him in his country's eye.
VAIN Love, why do'st thou boast of Wings,
That cannot help thee to retire!
When such quick Flames Suspicion brings,
As do the Heart about thee fire.
Still Swift to come, but when to go
Thou shou'd'st be moreľAlas! how Slow.
Lord of the World must surely be
But thy bare Title at the most;
Since Jealousy is Lord of Thee,
And makes such Havock on thy Coast,
As do's thy pleasant Land deface,
Yet binds thee faster to the Place.
My wife's jealousy is getting ridiculous. The other day she looked at my calendar and wanted to know who May was.Rodney Dangerfield
Why art thou silent & invisible
Father of jealousy
Why dost thou hide thyself in clouds
From every searching Eye
Why darkness & obscurity
In all thy words & laws
That none dare eat the fruit but from
The wily serpents jaws
Or is it because Secresy
gains females loud applause
That is ever the way. 'Tis all jealousy to the bride and good wishes to the corpse.James M. Barrie
Jealousy feeds upon suspicion, and it turns into fury or it ends as soon as we pass from suspicion to certainty.Francois de La Rochefoucauld
Jealousy would be far less torturous if we understood that love is a passion entirely unrelated to our merits.Paul Eldridge
Love is the condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.... Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. The immature mind often mistakes one for the other, or assumes that the greater the love the greater the jealousy.Robert Heinlein
In that instant he learned what jealousy was. He wanted to know the name of every other man she had ever looked at, whether they had touched her- and most especially where to find these men so that he could kill them.Melaine Rawn
One of the tortures of jealousy is that it can never turn its eyes away from the thing that pains it.George Eliot
Jealousy is never satisfied with anything short of an omniscience that would detect the subtlest fold of the heart.George Eliot
My elementary school days were miserable. After Star Search, the jealousy got really bad that our neighbors slashed our tires.Christina Aguilera
Never underestimate the power of jealousy and the power of envy to destroy. Never underestimate that.Oliver Stone
Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. The immature mind often mistakes one for the other, or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy--in fact, they're almost incompatible; one emotion hardly leaves room for the other. Both at once can produce unbearable turmoil...Robert Heinlein
