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
jealousy is never satisfied with anything short of an omniscience that would detect the subtlest fold of the heart.george eliot
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.
A heat full of coldness, a sweet full of bitterness, a pain full of pleasantness, which maketh thoughts have eyes and hearts ears, bred by desire, nursed by delight, weaned by jealousy, killed by dissembling, buried by ingratitude, and this is love. Fair lady, will you any?john lyly
Your pretended fear lest error should step in, is like the man that would keep all the wine out of the country lest men should be drunk. It will be found an unjust and unwise jealousy, to deny a man the liberty he hath by nature upon a supposition that he may abuse it.Oliver Cromwell

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.

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
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
Yet he was jealous, though he did not show it, For jealousy dislikes the world to know it.lord byron
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.
jealousy is the tribute mediocrity pays to genius.fulton j. sheen
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
