Anger and jealousy can no more bear to lose sight of their objects than love.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross),
        The Mill on the Floss (bk. I, ch. X)

Jealousy is never satisfied with anything short of an omniscience that would detect the subtlest fold of the heart.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross),
        The Mill on the Floss (bk. VI, ch. X)

It is with jealousy as with the gout. When such distempers are in the blood, there is never any security against their breaking out, and that often on the slightest occasions, and when least suspected.
      - Henry Fielding

What frenzy dictates, jealousy believes.
      - John Gay

-----No greater mischief could be wrought
  Than love united to a jealous thought.
      - Robert Greene

Then grew a wrinkle on fair Venus' brow,
  The amber sweet of love is turn'd to gall!
    Gloomy was Heaven; bright Phoebus did avow
      He would be coy, and would not love at all;
        Swearing no greater mischief could be wrought,
          Than love united to a jealous thought.
      - Robert Greene, Jealousy

Jealousy is said to be the offspring of Love. Yet, unless the parent makes haste to strangle the child, the child will not rest
  till it has poisoned the parent.
      - A.W. Hare and J.C. Hare, Guesses at Truth

We are more jealous of frivolous accomplishments with brilliant success, than of the most estimable qualities without. Dr. Johnson envied Garrick, whom he despised, and ridiculed Goldsmith, whom he loved.
      - William Hazlitt (1)

All the other passions condescend at times to accept the inexorable logic of facts; but jealousy looks facts straight in the face, ignores them utterly, and says that she knows a great deal better than they can tell her.
      - Sir Arthur Helps

Jealousy is a painful passion; yet without some share of it, the agreeable affection of love has difficulty to subsist in its full force and violence.
      - David Hume

There is never jealousy where there is not strong regard.
      - Washington Irving

Jealousy is all the fun you think they had.
      - Erica Jong

Jealousy is a dog's bark which attracts thieves.
      - Karl Kraus

Men are the cause of women not loving one another.
  [Fr., Les hommes sont la cause que les femmes ne s'aiment point.]
      - Jean de la Bruyere

To doubt is an injury; to suspect a friend is breach of friendship; jealousy is a seed sown but in vicious minds; prone to distrust, because apt to deceive.
      - George Lansdowne

Jealousy is always born with love, but does not always die with it.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

Jealousy is not love, but self-love.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

In jealousy there is more self-love than love.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld, Maxims
         (no. 334)

The jealous is possessed by a "fine mad devil" and a dull spirit at once.
      - Johann Kaspar Lavater (John Caspar Lavater)

No true love there can be without
  Its dread penalty--jealousy.
      - Lord Edward Robert Bulwer Lytton, 1st Earl of Lytton ("Owen Meredith"),
        Lucile (pt. II, canto I, st. 24, l. 8)

The way to hold a husband is to keep him a little jealous; the way to lose him is to keep him a little more jealous.
      - Henry Louis Mencken

Jealousy is the injured lover's hell.
      - John Milton

Nor jealousy
  Was understood, the injur'd lover's hell.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost (bk. V, l. 449)

Can't I another's face commend,
  Or to her virtues be a friend,
    But instantly your forehead louers,
      As if her merit lessen'd yours?
      - Edward Moore,
        The Farmer, the Spaniel, and the Cat
         (fable 9, l. 5)

O jealousy,
  Thou ugliest fiend of hell! thy deadly venom
    Preys on my vitals, turns the healthful hue
      Of my flesh cheek to haggard sallowness,
        And drinks my spirit up!
      - Hannah More, David and Goliath (pt. V)
