“The only thing more frustrating than slanderers is those foolish enough to listen to them.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Shannon L. Alder
“I am convinced that the jealous, the angry, the bitter and the egotistical are the first to race to the top of mountains. A confident person enjoys the journey, the people they meet along the way and sees life not as a competition. They reach the summit last because they know God isn’t at the top waiting for them. He is down below helping his followers to understand that the view is glorious where ever you stand.”
Shannon Alder

Susan Ee, World After

Criss Jami
“When emerging from humble beginnings, those around you tend to underestimate your authenticity because they knew you before you were 'somebody'.”

George Eliot
“Jealousy is never satisfied with anything short of an omniscience that would detect the subtlest fold of the heart.”
George Eliot, The Mill on the Floss

Kami Garcia
“I couldn't look at her. I'd been jealous and hurt, and I had dragged Liv into the middle of my own broken mess of a life. All because I thought Lena didn't love me anymore. But I was stupid, and I was wrong. Lena loved me so much, she was willing to risk everything to save me.
I had given up on Lena, after she had refused to give up on me. I owed her my life. It was as simple as that.”
Kami Garcia, Beautiful Darkness

Bree Despain
“You know I can't do that. Pete's probably already spent a ton of money. He's a nice guy. I can't
just bail--"
Pete's not as nice as you think," Daniel grumbled.
I laughed. "Are you jealous? Pete's just a friend--"
Daniel grabbed me by the hips. "Of course I'm jealous, Gracie. You just told me that you love me
but you are going out with another guy. But this is more important than my jealousy. If I'm
staying here, then you have to stay in. I've got enough to keep my eye on. I can't have you out
there. Not tonight.”
Bree Despain, The Dark Divine

Shannon L. Alder

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“How did you know I was different?”

“You mean besides the obvious obsidian, the alien entourage, and the branch?” He laughed. “You’re full of electricity. See?” He reached between the seats and placed his hand over mine. Static crackled, jolting us both.

Daemon grabbed Blake’s hand and threw it back at him. “I do not like you.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Блага Димитрова
“Може би и в любовта не трябва да обръщам поглед към зейналата, винаги дебнеща раздяла. Самата любов всъщност е постоянен страх от загуба на любовта. Преди още да си я постигнал, ти трепериш да не я загубиш. Е, тогава ти никога не можеш да познаеш любовта като чувство, защото си в непрестанен страх. А страхът обезцветява всяко чувство. Аз се плашех най-вече от собствения си страх. За мене любовта, както всичко останало, се превръщаше в борба със страха. Ревността ми причиняваше най-страшното виене на свят и губене на равновесие. Всяка жена пресякла моята пътека ме стряскаше като възможна съперница. Мъчех се да се освободя от ревността с разумни доводи. Разумът бе съвсем безсилен. Логиката се разбиваше на пух и прах пред абсурдността на това чувство.”
Блага Димитрова, Пътуване към себе си

Kamand Kojouri
“My love,
you are driving the entire world mad.
The nightingales are committing suicide
one by one out of jealousy of your voice.
The roses took one glance at your beauty
and folded themselves from shame.
The trees now only whisper your name
and the sky hasn’t stopped crying since you looked up.
Have pity on us, my love.
We have already broken all the mirrors and glass
out of fear that you will forget us
and fall in love with yourself
once you see what we all
cannot stop seeing.”
Kamand Kojouri

Michael Bassey Johnson
“Don't show a friend your gift, or your bag of money if you still want to maintain your relationship, but if nay, go on, and all you'll see is hate and jealousy, and you'll fight with him in the street like a dog and all you'll feel is regret.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Rasheed Ogunlaru
“If you're jealous of someone else it simply means you have not come to a true acceptance and appreciation of yourself.”

Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Toba Beta
“Man allowed by God to do good and evil.
That's why some of angels feel so jealous.”
Toba Beta, My Ancestor Was an Ancient Astronaut

Karen Marie Moning
“There were twenty-three females on the Keltar estate--not counting Gwen, Chloe, herself, or the cat--Gabby knew, because shortly after Adam had become visible last night, she'd met each and every one, from tiniest tot to tottering ancient.
It had begun with a plump, thirtyish maid popping in to pull the drapes for the evening and inquire if the MacKeltars "were wishing aught else?" The moment her bespectacled gaze had fallen on Adam, she'd begun stammering and tripping over her own feet. It had taken her a few moments to regain a semblance of coordination, but she'd managed to stumble from the library, nearly upsetting a lamp and a small end table in her haste.
Apparently it had been haste to alert the forces, for a veritable parade had ensued: a blushing curvaceous maid had come offering a warm-up of tear (they'd not been having any), followed by a giggling maid seeking a forgotten dust cloth (which--was anyone surprised?--was nowhere to be found), then a third one looking for a waylaid broom (yeah, right--they swept castles at midnight in Scotland--who believed that?), then a fourth, fifth, and sixth inquiring if the Crystal Chamber would do for Mr. Black (no one seemed to care what chamber might do for her; she half-expected to end up in an outbuilding somewhere). A seventh, eighth, and ninth had come to announce that his chamber was ready would he like an escort? A bath drawn? Help undressing? (Well, okay, maybe they hadn't actually asked the last, but their eyes certainly had.)
Then a half-dozen more had popped in at varying intervals to say the same things over again, and to stress that they were there to provide "aught, aught at all Mr. Black might desire."
The sixteenth had come to extract two tiny girls from Adam's lap over their wailing protests (and had stayed out of his lap herself only because Adam had hastily stood), the twenty-third and final one had been old enough to be someone's great-great-grandmother, and even she'd flirted shamelessly with the "braw Mr. Black," batting nonexistent lashes above nests of wrinkles, smoothing thin white hair with a blue-veined, age-spotted hand.
And if that hadn't been enough, the castle cat, obviously female and obviously in heat, had sashayed in, tail straight up and perkily curved at the tip, and would her furry little self sinuously around Adam's ankles, purring herself into a state of drooling, slanty-eyed bliss.
Mr. Black, my ass, she'd wanted to snap (and she liked cats, really she did; she'd certainly never wanted to kick one before, but please--even cats?), he's a fairy and I found him, so that him my fairy. Back off.
Karen Marie Moning, The Immortal Highlander

Margaret McMullan
“When you're and only child in a family with an only parent, you look at other, bigger families with envy. Mary Alice had a family with a station wagon, a split-level house, and a pool.
But then I looked up and saw Mary Alice's toes, as she stood at the edged of the diving board. Her second toe lay on top of her big toe on each foot. I had never seen such a thing. I wondered if Mary Alice's toes would ever prevent her from doing the things she wanted to do in life.
"Look, y'all!" she said, forming her perfect body into a perfect swan's dive. I decided then that any time I got frustrated with my overall situation in life, mad or jealous of knee socks or a pink canopy bed in a pink room, I'd take a deep breath and think about Mary Alice's toes. At least I didn't have Mary Alice's toes.”
Margaret McMullan

“Here's how man thinks: "If no one’s done it, why should I try? It’s a waste of time; but if he’s done it, I can do it better.”
Nabil N. Jamal

Iris Murdoch
“I felt so ashamed with them because everything in their life was going so well and they were so sort of successful. I couldn't talk about what I wanted with them and they were always in a hurry.”
Iris Murdoch, The Black Prince

“Jealous makes tongue unconscious.”
Bharath Mamidoju

“His lips moved to her ear as his hand danced over her lace covered sex. "Other men look at you and I want to rip their eyes out." His fingers gripped her inner thigh, causing her to jolt and cry out.”
H.S. Howe, Willfully Wanton

“Jealousy. It’s an ugly word. It has a bad reputation. But in the end, it’s an instinctive feeling. It’s not something we choose to feel any more than anger or pain. It is how we react to it that is the key.”
Linda Maria

“Before you get jealous of her best friend,
be your wife's best friend yourself.”
Augusto Branco

Patrick Ness
“One minute I’m standing there behind everyone and the next thing I know, I’m between Matthew and Viola, I have my knife out pointing at him, my own Noise falling like an avalanche and my mouth saying, “You best take two steps away from her and you best be taking ’em right quick.”
Patrick Ness, The Knife of Never Letting Go

Jarod Kintz
“I’m training tuna fish to land travel using slices of tomatoes as wheels. You wouldn't believe how many swimming creatures are jealous of ducks' versatility of movement.”
Jarod Kintz, Music is fluid, and my saxophone overflows when my ducks slosh in the sounds I make in elevators.

Vera Brosgol
“I know⁠—I know I said before I wasn't like you... It's not true. I'm enough like you to know how you feel. Wanting how others look, what they have, who they have! Everyone else's life seems so much easier... But that's all you know! What you want! You don't know what's going on inside anyone else's head.”
Vera Brosgol, Anya's Ghost

Eve Babitz
“Which is another example of jealousy not panning out as expected; for in this story, actual humanity triumphed over rage an hatred, something we hardly imagine in our wildest hopes.”
Eve Babitz, Black Swans
