Love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave.
First, then, a woman will or won’t, depend on ’t;If she will do ’t, she will; and there ’s an end on ’t.But if she won’t, since safe and sound your trust is,Fear is affront, and jealousy injustice.aaron hill
Nor jealousy Was understood, the injured lover's hell.john milton
These golden matters Of Gyges and his treasuries Are no concern of mine. jealousy has no power over me, Nor do I envy a god his work, And I do not burn to rule. Such things have no Fascination for my eyes.
jealousy is the cause of erosion of good deeds, as well as the attracter of chastisement.
To jealousy, nothing is more frightful than laughter.Françoise sagan
The poet and the painter are only truly great by the mutual influences of their studies, and the jealousy of glory has only produced an idle contest.isaac d'israeli
The principal difference between love and hate is that love is an irradiation, and hate is a concentration. Love makes everything lovely; hate concentrates itself on the object of its hatred. All the fearful counterfeits of love — possessiveness, lust, vanity, jealousy — are closer to hate: they concentrate on the object, guard it, suck it dry.sydney j. harris
As far as my experience goes, men of genius are fairly gifted with the social qualities; and in this age, there appears to be a fellow-feeling among them, which had not heretofore been developed. As men, they ask nothing better than to be on equal terms with their fellow-men; and as authors, they have thrown aside their proverbial jealousy, and acknowledge a generous brotherhood.Nathaniel Hawthorne
His taste was formed in no exclusive schools, and he could admire whatever was good, no matter the rules or the contempt of rules by which it was produced. He was as free from envy and jealousy as a man can be; and few writers younger than himself will fail to remember the generous encouragement and seasonable notice which his connection with the press enabled his kindly temper to bestow.samuel laman blanchard
Family life may be marked by exclusiveness,suspicion, and jealousy as to those without, and yet be a model of amity and mutual aid within. Any education given by a group tends to socialize its members, but the quality and value of the socialization depends on the habits and aims of the group.john dewey
The Bobbit case, which brought to life the ancient mythic archetype of woman as castrator, demonstrated that women are as aggressive as men and that sex is a dark, dangerous force of nature. But of course the feminist establishment, stuck in its battered-woman blinders, learned nothing as usual from this lurid refutation of its normal views. Classic art works like Bizet’s Carmen tell us more about the irrationality of love, jealousy and revenge than do all the pat formulas of the counseling industry.camille paglia
Pride and jealousy there was in his eye, for his life had been spent in asserting rights which were constantly liable to invasion; and the prompt, fiery, and resolute disposition of the man, had been kept constantly upon the alert by the circumstances of his situation.walter scott
O! beware, my lord, of jealousy; It is the green-ey'd monster which doth mock The meat it feeds on.william shakespeare
For love, thou know'st, is full of jealousy.
This jealousy Is for a precious creature; as she's rare, Must it be great; and, as his person's mighty, Must it be violent: and as he does conceive He is dishonour'd by a man which ever Profess'd to him, why, his revenges must In that be made more bitter. Fear o'ershades me.
Don't waste time on jealousy. Sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.mary schmich
These golden matters Of Gyges and his treasuries Are no concern of mine. jealousy has no power over me, Nor do I envy a god his work, And I do not burn to rule. Such things have no Fascination for my eyes.archilochus
