I am not a jealous person.Or rather I have never found anyone to be jealous of.When I see a person richer than me, I simply say: He's probably miserable and has ulcers and will end up in prison for tax fraud.When I see a person better looking than me, I simply say: He's probably got three ex-wives and the alimony is killing him.And when I see a person smarter than me . . . well, that has never happened.Ego is a great defense against jealousy. If you feel you are better than everyone else, how can you possibly be jealous of anyone else?
