There is one vice in this world that no man in this world is free.
The more a man has it,
The more he dislikes it in others.
If you want to find out how much you have of it,
The easiest way is to ask thyself;
How much do I dislike when people think low of me?
How much pleasure did I get from being richer, clever, and good-looking than the next person?
A kind of cancer that neither eats up the flesh,
But eats up love, contentment, and even one’s common sense.
It takes no pleasure out of having something,
It takes pleasure thinking thy neighbor is not better than ye.
