Few men have the natural strength to honour a friend’s success without envy. … I well know that mirror of friendship, shadow of a shade.

Aeschylus (525-456 BC) Greek dramatist (Æschylus)
Agamemnon, l. 832

Alt trans.: "It is in the character of very few men to honor without envy a friend who has prospered."
