Quote by Luckson Pierre
Envy is concealed admiration
This quote suggests that envy is rooted in a hidden admiration for someone or something. It implies that when we feel envious of someone, it could be because we secretly desire what they have or who they are. Instead of openly acknowledging our admiration, we use envy as a way to conceal our true feelings. This quote invites us to reflect on the possibility that envy may be a misguided expression of our desires and encourages us to embrace admiration rather than succumbing to jealousy.
The Lord gave me 'Sojourner,' because I was to travel up an' down the land, showin' the people their sins an' bein' a sign unto them. Afterwards, I told the Lord I wanted another name 'cause everybody else had two names, and the Lord gave me 'Truth,' because I was to declare the truth to people.
