Envy


What it is: Envy is the desire for others’ traits, status, abilities, or situation.

Why you do it: Because other people are so much luckier, smarter, more attractive, and better than you.

Your punishment in Hell will be: You’ll be put in freezing water.

Associated symbols & suchlike: Envy is linked with the dog and the color green.

“Envy consists in seeing things never in themselves, but only in their relations. If you desire glory, you may envy Napoleon, but Napoleon envied Caesar, Caesar envied Alexander, and Alexander, I daresay, envied Hercules, who never existed.” – Bertrand Russell

In this day and age this is a sin that no one can escape, everyone has envy over someone or something.
