Envy

Grant us, O Lord, the blessing of those whose minds are stayed on you, so that we may be kept in perfect peace:  a peace which cannot be broken.  Let not our minds rest upon any creature; but only in the Creator; not upon goods, things, houses, lands, inventions of vanities or foolish fashions, lest, our peace being broken, we become cross and brittle and given over to envy.  From all such deliver us, O God, and grant us your peace.

–George Fox (1624-1691)
