Envy

Not every action that springs from envy is bad.  For instance, I envied my friend Susan’s easy generosity and sweetness.  I didn’t just admire it, I wished I was that kind of person.

Sometimes envy is the spur we need to work hard, to build something new and in the process to create not the image of what we envied to begin with but a new paradigm.
