9 Jealousy Quotes from Literature

"Jealousy is a strange transformer of characters." ~ The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle The venom clamours of a jealous woman
Poisons more deadly than a mad dog's tooth. ~ The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare There is a sort of jealousy which needs very little fire: it is hardly a passion, but a blight bred in the cloudy, damp despondency of uneasy egoism. ~ Middlemarch by George Eliot When the effects of female jealousy do not appear openly in their proper colours of rage and fury, we may suspect that mischievous passion to be at work privately, and attempting to undermine, what it doth not attack above-ground. ~ Tom Jones by Henry Fielding Jealousy is never satisfied with anything short of an omniscience that would detect the subtlest fold of the heart. ~ The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot But the dullard's envy of brilliant men is always assuaged by the suspicion that they will come to a bad end. ~ Zuleika Dobson by Sir Max Beerbohm Pride and jealousy there was in his eye, for his life had been spent in asserting rights which were constantly liable to invasion; and the prompt, fiery, and resolute disposition of the man, had been kept constantly upon the alert by the circumstances of his situation. ~ Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott "O, beware, my lord, of jealousy! It is the green-eyed monster, which doth mock the meat it feeds on." ~ Othello by William Shakespeare Anger and jealousy can no more bear to lose sight of their objects than love. ~ The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot
