Anytime you try to do something great with your life, there are always going to be others trying to bring you down.

Maybe you’ve got a shot at celebrity, and your name is finally starting to get out there, but the bad reviews are pouring in, and the critics are shouting at you.

Or maybe your situation is a little more common—maybe you are just dealing with some internet trolls on your favorite message board. No matter what form hate takes, it is always hard to deal with.

Hater quotes can remind you that you’re not alone, and that everybody in the world has to deal with haters.

After all, other people are taking the time to think about you. Positively or negatively, it means you are making an impact. And that’s something to draw strength from.

27 Quotes on Jealousy From Some of the Most Celebrated People

wise quotes about jealousy

Looking for inspirational jealousy quotes?

Do you have some haters in your life that you would like to gain some perspective on?

Envy is an emotion that eats up many of us.

It is unhealthy, it prevents us from moving forward, and it fixates us on what others have, instead of what we want to work for.

There is a Buddhist term, Mudita, which means sympathetic or unselfish joy.

Joy in the good fortune of others. The opposite of Mudita is envy and jealousy.

It is a gift to be able to let envy go, and it is life changing to turn the emotion around into a positive that motivates and inspires us.

Here are some thoughts on envy to consider as you are moving forward with your life.

Jealousy Sayings and Quotes

wise quotes about jealousy

25 Jealousy Quotes-In the lives that we live today, it’s easy to be envious with others and get jealous over the things other people have. Jealousy is a very dangerous emotion and it can drive people to do dangerous things. There is a thing that we call a crime of passion which is basically a heinous misconduct committed out of sheer jealousy and other extreme emotions. So, a simple jealousy over a phone model or that one boy in class could have pretty bad effects. Let’s look at some of the famous Jealousy Quotes that are said about envy and how wicked it can get.



The Jealous Are Troublesome To Others, But A Torment To Themselves – William Penn

While there are a lot of misunderstandings and issues between people that are rooted from jealousy, it is actually a much bigger war from inside a person. A jealous person might feel anger towards a person but truthfully, they are angrier with themselves for feeling that way. Sometimes, they don’t understand why they suddenly get envious over trivial things and then the inner battle starts. People who can’t control their self-hatred could start hurting others or worse, hurting themselves. So, listen to these people. It is important that you take the time to understand these people and know where they are coming from. Sometimes, all they need is a calm conversation.

To Cure Jealousy Is To See It For What It Is, A Dissatisfaction With Self – Joan Didion

Whichever angle you look at it, jealousy boils down to being discontented with what we have. We often look past the blessings that we have and focus on the things that we don’t have. And then, when we see others possess the things that we don’t have, we start to get jealous. We have a phone but it is not the latest model. That girl who sits beside you in class has the latest phone model. You get envious and you start to think about how you can flush her phone down the toilet. The only cure for jealousy is to look into ourselves and realize how dissatisfied we are. Start counting your blessings and be thankful. Once you do this, what others possess won’t matter anymore.

As we’ve said, jealousy can push a person to do unimaginable things that can cause either physical, mental, or emotional deaths. This is why it is important to have friends around you so that you have a support system. You should have people around you who can listen to your problems and help you calm down so your jealousy won’t eat you.
