Jealousy is the most dreadfully involuntary of all sins.
      - Iris Murdoch

The jealous are troublesome to others, but a torment to themselves.
      - William Penn

Bear, like the Turk, no brother near the throne.
      - Alexander Pope, Prologue to the Satires
         (l. 197)

Jealousy is an awkward homage which inferiority renders to merit.
      - Madame Marie Madeleine Puisieux

If you are wise, and prize your peace of mind,
  Believe me true, nor listen to your jealousy,
    Let not that devil which undoes your sex,
      That curs'd curiosity seduce you
        To hunt for needless secrets, which, neglected,
          Shall never hurt your quiet, but once known
            Shall sit upon your heart, pinch it with pain,
              And banish sweet sleep forever from, you.
      - Nicholas Rowe

Jealousy is the tie that binds, and binds, and binds.
      - Helen Rowland

To jealousy, nothing is more frightful than laughter.
      - Francoise Sagan (pseudonym of Francoise Quoirez),
        La Chamade (ch. 9)

O jealousy! thou magnifier of trifles.
  [Ger., O der alles vergrossernden Eifersucht.]
      - Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller,
        Fiesco (I, 1)

A jealous man always finds more than he looks for.
      - Mademoiselle Madeleine de Scuderi (Scudery)(known as Sapho)

Women detest a jealous man whom they do not love, but it angers them when a man they do love is not jealous at times.
      - Mademoiselle Madeleine de Scuderi (Scudery)(known as Sapho)

How many fond fools serve mad jealousy!
      - William Shakespeare

Jealousy--it is a green-eyed monster, which doth mock the meat it feeds on.
      - William Shakespeare

Love's sentinel.
      - William Shakespeare

O, what damned minutes tells he o'er, who dotes, yet doubts; suspects, yet strongly loves!
      - William Shakespeare

Oft my jealousy shapes faults that are not.
      - William Shakespeare

Self-harming jealousy.
      - William Shakespeare

The venom clamours of a jealous woman
  Poison more deadly than a mad-dog's tooth.
      - William Shakespeare

'Tis a monster begot upon itself, born on itself.
      - William Shakespeare

So full of artless jealousy is guilt
  It spills itself in fearing to be spilt.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Gertrude, Queen of Denmark at IV, v)

I do beseech you--
  Though I perchance am vicious in my guess
    (As I confess it is my nature's plague
      To spy into abuses, and oft my jealousy
        Shapes faults that are not), that your wisdom yet
          From one that so imperfectly conjects
            Would take no notice, nor build yourself a trouble
              Out of his scattering and unsure observance.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Iago at III, iii)

O, beware, my lord, of jealousy!
  It is the green-eyed monster, which doth mock
    The meat it feeds on. That cuckold lives in bliss
      Who, certain of his fate, loves not his wronger;
        But O, what damned minutes tells he o'er
          Who dotes, yet doubts--suspects, yet strongly loves!
      - William Shakespeare,
        Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Iago at III, iii)

Trifles light as air
  Are to the jealous confirmations strong
    As proofs of holy writ.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Iago at III, iii)

But jealous souls will not be answered so;
  They are not ever jealous for the cause,
    But jealous for they're jealous.
      'Tis a monster
        Begot upon itself, born on itself.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Emilia at III, iv)

If I shall be condemned
  Upon surmises, all proofs sleeping else
    But what your jealousies awake, I tell you
      'Tis rigor and not law.
      - William Shakespeare, The Winter's Tale
         (Hermione at III, ii)

Never waste jealousy on a real man: it is the imaginary man that supplants us all in the long run.
      - George Bernard Shaw
