Author's Note: There is often confusion between envy and jealousy. Envy is desiring something that someone has. Your neighbor might get a new car/job/television, and you might desire the same. You might feel a sense of resentment toward the person for getting something you want. Jealousy is more about holding on to what you have and becoming fearful of losing…
Leo Tolstoy once wrote a story about a successful peasant farmer who was permanently unsatisfied with his lot. He wanted more of everything. One day he received a novel offer.

Hugh Hefner didn't invent it.…
A Brief Introduction The Seven Deadly Sins owe their origin to John Cassian (360-435), who put together a list of eight principal vices. These were later amended to the seven sins we know today: lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, anger, envy, and pride. Each has a counter-balancing set of values that we should espouse and adopt.
