Alphabet Quotes: J is for Jealousy

"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 are almost incompatible; one emotion hardly leaves room for the other."
— Robert A. Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land

"What is jealousy but a reflection of your own failures?"
— Michael Connelly, The Last Coyote

"The thermometer of success is merely the jealousy of the malcontents."
— Salvador DalĂ­

"Jealousy in romance is like salt in food. A little can enhance the savor, but too much can spoil the pleasure and, under certain circumstances, can be life-threatening."
— Maya Angelou

"Jealousy isn't a pleasant quality, but if it isn't overdone (and if it's combined with modesty), apart from its inconvenience there's even something touching about it."
— Milan Kundera, Laughable Loves
