What Envy Is...

Moralist generally give us this description of it: it is a depraved affection or passion of the mind, disposing a man to hate or malign another for some good or excellence belonging to him, which the envious person judges him unworthy of, and which for the most part he wants himself.
Succinctly put, envy is a certain grief of mind conceived upon the sight of another's felicity, or fortune whether real or supposed. it consists partly of hatred, and partly of grief. Envy is vexatious and affects the breast which harbors it.


This are some causes of envy.. First on the side of man who harbors it..
___great malice and baseness of nature.
____an unreasonable grasping ambition.
____Another cause of envy is an inward sense of a man's own weakness and inability to attain what he desires and would aspire to.
___another terrific and most toxic cause is Idleness. This often makes men envy the high offices, honours, and accomplishments of others.

Now on the part of person being envied, this are some of the causes which can lead to them being envied by others

____ The favour of princes and great persons.
____ Wealth, riches, and prosperity.
____A fair credit, esteem, and reputation in the world.
