More from Jeremy Taylor

He loves virtue for God's sake and its own that loves and honours it wherever it is to be seen; but he that is envious or angry at a virtue that is not his own, at the perfection or excellency of his neighbour, is not covetous of the virtue, but of its reward and reputation; and then his intentions are polluted. - Jeremy Taylor, The Rule and Exercises of Holy Living (1649), 28.
