Envy is one of those emotions that can lead us into temptation, and perhaps, if great enough, to our own ruin. As Harold Coffin put it in one of his famous envy quotes, Envy is the art of counting the other fellow's blessings instead of your own. Its hard not to want what others have, but when we only indulge in envy, rather than taking action to achieve something on our own, we end up cheating ourselves. Envy quotes can help us recognize what constitutes envy as well as the heavy price we must pay to indulge in its dead-end ways. Its not one of the Seven Deadly Sins for nothing.
