Envy

“When a jealous person sees signs of other people’s success and good fortune, his heart is pierced with envy. But someone who has learned to rejoice in the good fortune of others experiences only happiness. Seeing another person’s beautiful house or attractive partner immediately makes him happy – the fact that they are not his own is irrelevant.” ~ Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

 

“Money is the most envied, but the least enjoyed. Health is the most enjoyed, but the least envied.” ~ Charles Caleb Colton
