Quotes: 1 - 7 of 7 Pages: 1 
Envy consists in seeing things never in themselves, but only in their relations. If you desire glory, you may envy Napoleon, but Napoleon envied Caesar, Caesar envied Alexander, and Alexander, I daresay, envied Hercules, who never existed.
Bertrand Russell
I envy people who drink - at least they know what to blame everything on.
Oscar Levant
It stirs up envy, fame does. People feel fame gives them some kind of privilege to walk up to you and say anything to you - and it won't hurt your feelings - like it's happening to your clothing.
Marilyn Monroe
Pity is for the living, envy is for the dead
Mark Twain
Pride is seldom delicate, it will please itself with very mean advantages; and envy feels not its own happiness, but when it may be compared with the misery of others
Samuel Johnson
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.
Winston Churchill
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.
Winston Churchill
