William Penn

January 01, 1700 - January 01, 1700
"Jealousy is a kind of civil war in the soul, where judgment and imagination are at perpetual wars. This civil dissension in the mind, like that of the body politic, commits great disorders, and lays all waste. Nothing stands safe in its way: nature, interest, religion, must yield to its fury. It violates contract, dissolves society, breaks wedlock, betrays friends and neighbors. No body is good, and every one is either doing or designing them a mischief."source: More Fruits of Solitude, 1702.envy, malace, jealousy, hatred, trust, honesty
