Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast,
It is not proud. It does not dishonor others,
It is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered,
It keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
- Corinthians 13:4-8 (NIV)

You shall not covet your neighbor’s house;
you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife,
nor his male servant, nor his female servant,
nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.

visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children

To cure jealousy is to see it for what it is,
a dissatisfaction with self.

A loving relationship is one in which
the loved one is free to be himself --
to laugh with me, but never at me;
to cry with me, but never because of me;
to love life, to love himself,
to love being loved.
Such a relationship is based upon freedom
and can never grow in a jealous heart.
- Leo F. Buscaglia

A competent and self-confident person is incapable of jealousy in anything.
Jealousy is invariably a symptom of neurotic insecurity.
- Robert A. Heinlein

"Mother Teresa Prayer"
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
... Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
... Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
... Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
... Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
... Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
... Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
... Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
... Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
We can do no great things - only small things with great love.
- although commonly attributed to Mother Teresa,
who kept a copy of this prayer on the wall of her Calcutta orphanage,
this prayer was actually written by Kent Keith.

He that is jealous is not in love.
- Saint Augustine

Love without jealousy. Love without need.
Let love be an unconditional gift.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

O! beware, my lord, of jealousy;
It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock the meat it feeds on.

Suspicion and jealousy are the death knell of any relationship.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Jealousy is that pain which a man feels from the apprehension
that he is not equally beloved by the person whom he entirely loves.
- Joseph Addison

True love is a process of co-creation in which neither feels ownership or superiority.
Jealousy is a highly destructive force for love and relationships.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

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're almost incompatible; one emotion hardly leaves room for the other.
Both at once can produce unbearable turmoil.
- Robert Heinlein

I am the master of my emotions -
I transform fear to love, anger to compassion,
pain to comfort, scarcity to abundance,
expectation to gratitude, and jealousy to generosity.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

My vision of a real humanity is of pure individuals relating to each other,
but not tied in any relationship.
They will be loving to each other, but not being possessive of each other.
They will be sharing with each other all their joys and all their blessings,
but never even in their dreams thinking of dominating, thinking of enslaving the other person.
- Osho (Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh)

Essentially all suffering is the result of...
1. Comparing what we have (or don't have) today with what we had yesterday.
2. Comparing what we fear we might have (or not have) tomorrow) with what we have today.
3. Comparing what we have (or don't have) with what others have.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
