My dear,

Who are they that are truly jealous of us? Who are they who envy?

Is it those who openly spit on us and our ideas? Those who shun us the moment they see us? Or those who openly attack us with the daggers of their words?


It be none of these.

To know how many are jealous of you, count your admirers.

No one envies you more than the being who worships you.

Falsely yours,
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
