Previous Section   53. ENVY WITH OR WITHOUT A MOUTHPIECE   Next Section

Envy with or without a Mouthpiece.  Ordinary envy is wont to cackle when the envied hen has laid an egg, thereby relieving itself and becoming milder.  But there is a yet deeper envy that in such a case becomes dead silent, desiring that every mouth should be sealed and always more and more angry because this desire is not gratified.  Silent envy grows in silence.
