Marina Porras in B O D Y

“Of all the sins, I liked envy best because it seemed the most dangerous. The others were more obvious: lust compels you to possess; pride, to act superior; greed, to hoard money; sloth, to do nothing; wrath, to attack; gluttony, to eat. Envy compels you to desire without consummation. It is an empty, unending sin…”

– from “Envy“, an essay by Marina Porras, translated from the Catalan by Mara Faye Letham in the soon-to-be-released The Seven Deadly Sins by Fum D’Estampa Press
