RIVALRY
[ Also see Competition Contention Emulation Enemies Envy Friendship Jealousy Opposition War ]

It is impossible for authors to discover beauties in one another's works; they have eyes only for spots and blemishes.
      - Joseph Addison

It is the privilege of posterity to set matters right between those antagonists who, by their rivalry for greatness, divided a whole age.
      - Joseph Addison

Rivalry adds so much to the charms of one's conquests.
      - Louisa May Alcott

      - Honore de Balzac

Old maids claw as cats do. They not only inflict wounds but experience pleasure in doing so. Nor will they fail to remind their victims of the blood drawn.
      - Honore de Balzac

In ambition, as in love, the successful can afford to be indulgent towards their rivals. The prize our own, it is graceful to recognize the merit that vainly aspired to it.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

Women see faults much more readily in each other than they can discover perfections.
      - Sebastien-Roch-Nicolas de Chamfort

If one must be rejected, one succeed, make him my lord within whose faithful breast is fixed my image, and who loves me best.
      - John Dryden

It is a fact capable of amiable interpretation that ladies are not the worst disposed towards a new acquaintance of their own sex, because she has points of inferiority.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross)

Women of the world never use harsh expressions when condemning their rivals. Like the savage they hurl elegant arrows, ornamented with feathers of purple and azure, but with poisoned points.
      - J. de Finod

Emulation adds its spur.
      - Lucanus (Marcus Annaeus Lucan)

Women do not disapprove their rivals; they hate them.
      - James Parton

Women always find their bitterest foes among their own sex.
      - Jean-Antoine Petit-Senn

Rivalry and envy are Siamese twins.
      - Henry Wheeler Shaw (used pseudonyms Josh Billings and Uncle Esek)
