Quotes with jealousy
Anger and jealousy can no more bear to lose sight of their objects than love...
The Mill on the Floss (1860)
Envy, jealousy, ambition, any kind of greed are passions; love is an action, the practice of human power, which can be practiced only in freedom and never as a result of compulsion.
The Art of Loving (1956)
Love is the master-key that opens the gates of happiness, of hatred, of jealousy, and, most easily of all, the gate of fear. How terrible is the one fact of beauty!
A Mortal Antipathy (1885)
Jealousy is in a manner just and reasonable, as it tends to preserve a good which belongs, or which we believe belongs to us. Envy, on the other hand, is a fury that cannot endure the happiness of others.
Jealousy lives upon distrust, becomes madness, or ceases entirely, when we pass from doubt to certainty.

Life of St. Francis d'Assisi (1894)
