36 Jealousy Quotes That Are Full Of Wisdom

Jealousy

Jealousy is like a disease. Not only does it affect the person with it, but also their relationship with the person they are feeling it towards. Jealousy ruins relationships. It may seem healthy and good at first, but it progresses and becomes unhealthy fast.

Someone who is jealous feels inferior and insecure. They find the other person to be better, happier, and at a higher level compared to them. They tend to feel threatened by the other person.

A good example is in relationships when someone is jealous of a third party. They usually feel like the third party could take away their partner because they seem to be better or have something that they lack.

Friends, siblings, and colleagues could be jealous of each other too. Someone could be jealous of their friend's happy relationship. Another could be jealous because their sibling seems to have their life all figured out. Others could be jealous because their colleague does a better job than them at work.

When people are jealous, they feel inadequate or lacking, and are not happy with themselves. Jealousy always stems from comparison as they try to compare what they have with what someone else has. If someone is jealous of you, it means that you are doing something right.

When you are confident in yourself, you will have no room for jealousy. There will be no need for you to hate on anyone else because you know you are amazing. You know who you are and what you are capable of. Instead of focusing on other people, you will focus on being better.

People who are jealous of you will even go to the extend of talking ill of you so that others will not like you. Here is a curated collection of jealousy quotes that you will relate to.

Arisa Uotani: You DO know, it's bound to happen one day, one of 'em's gonna tell her he likes her. Saki Hanajima: Oh, no, no. I'm afraid I simply could NOT allow my Tohru to take either one of those boys. Arisa Uotani: So, what, are you her mother now? Saki Hanajima: I really meant that half joking. Arisa Uotani: So you were half serious. Saki Hanajima: It's their signals. I can still sense something that troubles me. There are many conflicting emotions hanging like dark clouds around their hearts. I suppose that's true of every person to some extent, but with those two it seems to be rather extreme, and as long as those dark clouds remain I'm not sure they can ever truly share their hearts with another.

If you think of someone’s good qualities as the umeboshi in an onigiri, it’s as if their qualities are stuck to their back! People around the world are like onigiri. Everyone has an umeboshi with a different shape and color and flavor. But because it’s stuck on their back, they might not be able to see their umeboshi. “There’s nothing special about me. I’m just white rice.” [in her head] That’s not true. There is an umeboshi — on your back. [aloud] Maybe the reason people get jealous of each other, is because they can see so clearly the umeboshi on other people’s backs. I can see them, too. I can see them perfectly. There’s an amazing umeboshi on your back, Kyo-kun.

I suppose that at last like the average man: I’ve known too many women and instead of thinking, I wonder who’s fucking her now? I think she’s giving some other poor son of a bitch much trouble right now.

Her violence frightened me. She always claimed that I was the jealous one, and I was often jealous, but when I saw things working against me I simply became disgusted and withdrew. Lydia was different. She reacted. She was the Head Cheerleader at the Game of Violence.

it was like any other relationship, there was jealousy on both sides, there were split-ups and reconciliations. there were also fragmented moments of great peace and beauty. I often tried to get away from her and she tied to get away from me but it was difficult: Cupid, in his strange way, was really there.

Hatori Sohma: Any idea where Akito and Kureno are off to? Shigure Sohma: Taking a little walk. Hatori Sohma: To see Honda you think? Shigure Sohma: I suppose that is a possibility. When it comes to Tohru, Akito has clearly got a superiority complex. The girl is a threat – why else keep us locked away, stuck in one-on-one meetings?

All these years and that vow is still right here [gestures to his heart]. If I have to lie or manipulate a few people along the way, then so be it. It’s a small price to pay, even if someone gets hurt… I do feel bad about it sometimes though. Mostly, it’s when I’m looking at Tohru. She’s just good, through and through. She helps for those two, but her innocence may be a bit much for me. Sometimes she forces me to realize that mine might be the filthiest soul of all. Granted, I am as dirty as they come. It’s funny but, sometimes, I find myself feeling jealous of you. And I wonder if maybe I’m the one most cursed of us.

I can't stand any other girl getting close to him, whether it's Tohru Honda or the girl who MIGHT join student council or the new fan club president. How can I choose another girl to take my place? I hate them all. All of them. They're enemies, every single one. But, really, the one I hate the most - is myself.

Motoko Minagawa: We - the four of us - we really like Yuki. We love him. Can't you understand how much it hurts us when we see Tohru with him all the time? It's like... it's like she thinks she can have him all to herself - but she can't. Prince Yuki belongs to all of us. Megumi Hanajima: You say that, but if he truly belonged to you, would you be here fighting to hold onto him? You say that you love him, but if you did would you really want to take his friends from him? Would you try to force your will upon him to make yourselves happy without any regard for HIS feelings?

Wadda they need me for? They've got Yuki, don't they? I doubt anyone's gonna miss ME. They're all too busy looking to HIM. That's the way it always is, ever since we were kids. He's always been the smart one, and he knows how to get stuff done, and he's good with people, all that. And everybody around him's always telling him how talented he is and stuff. He doesn't even have to try and they all look up to him. Anyway, it's just like with martial arts. I've been training WAY longer than he has, but he's still better than me.

Kyo Sohma: Of course, I'll beat YOU, too! Yuki Sohma: Don't you ever get tired of saying that? Kyo Sohma: Beating you is my vocation! It's my goal in life! Yuki Sohma: It's so unfair that I keep having to take abuse just because you can't meet your goals. Kyo Sohma: THAT CONDESCENDING ATTITUDE OF YOURS REALLY PISSES ME OFF! Yuki Sohma: And that revolting thought process of yours pisses me off.

[Mrs. Pentstemmon] had said Sophie was a witch. Oddly enough, Sophie accepted this without any trouble at all. That explained the popularity of certain hats, she thought. It explained Jane Farrier’s Count Whatsit. It possibly explained the jealousy of the Witch of the Waste. It was as if Sophie had always known this. But she had thought it was not proper to have a magic gift because she was the eldest of three. Lettie had been far more sensible about such things.

I’ve always envied people who sleep easily. Their brains must be cleaner, the floorboards of the skull well swept, all the little monsters closed up in a steamer trunk at the foot of the bed.

I don’t give anyone a reason to hate me, they create their own drama out of pure jealousy. Keep ears opened, mouth closed.
