Envy reveals everything that should have been yours; jealousy shows what other people are keeping from you. Absolutely everything, the whole lot, every last thing that you might happen to envy should have been yours – all of it, no matter what. Jealousy shows just how much you have been cheated by society. Everything that you desire was supposed to be yours, but then interlopers managed to steal your birthright. Envy shows just what other people have taken away from you.
Envy is like a search for your own stolen possessions in a seedy establishment; jealousy is that moment of recognition that this piece of property is truly yours. The sense of envy is exactly the same as that feeling when you identify one of your stolen belongings in a pawn shop. The stronger the jealously, the truer the realization that it should be returned to your ownership.
The establishment is certain to indoctrinate you that envy is wrong, but it is always these very same authorities who have already taken most everything that is yours. It is always the tax collector that is the first to tell you jealousy is prohibited. The do-gooder who mostly loudly insists that you should not be covetous always turns out to be the professional thief.
Envy is the most useful emotion. You are never more perceptive than that moment when you are jealous of another person. You are never more observant than when you are feeling envy. The greedier the human, the more acute his senses. The more covetous the man, the more cunning his mind. Love is blind, but loathing is always in perfect focus.
Envy is prudent. You keep begrudging until chance circumstances give you a chance to take things back. Resentment lets you bide your time until the right moment to strike back. Jealousy gives you ample time to premeditate things.
Envy demonstrates what is your true destiny. Jealously displays the hand of providence.
Envy opens you to emotions that society would rather suppress. Hatred is the most potent sensation that can be experienced by the human soul; resentment is the gateway to that honest rancor in the back of your mind. Jealousy frees you up to primordial passions like pure hate. Greed liberates the soul.
Envy is what makes you human. If you do not feel jealousy when you are deprived of what should have been yours, then you are not fully human. If you are not jealous of someone else’s better fortune, then you are not honest about your real feelings.
Envy shows everything that you were denied. All this was supposed to be yours. If you don’t feel jealousy, then you haven’t truly felt anything in life.
