Engrave this Quote Jealousy is both reasonable and belongs to reasonable men, while envy is base and belongs to the base, for the one makes himself get good things by jealousy, while the other does not allow his neighbour to have them through envy.
-Aristotle, The Art of Rhetoric, sect. 6, ch. 2.11. Tell a Friend
