Regarding Envy

Seneca quote

Are there many who surpass you? Consider how many more are behind than ahead of you. Do you ask me what is your greatest fault? Your bookkeeping is wrong. What you have paid out, you value highly; what you have received, low.

— Seneca, On Anger 3.31.3, from The Practicing Stoic, by Ward Farnsworth
