CRABS IN A BASKET
Charles L. Allen wrote about a fisherman friend of his who told him that one never needs a top for his crab basket. If one of the crabs starts to climb up the sides of the basket, the other crabs will reach up and pull it back down. ("The Miracle of Love")
Allen then observed that lots of people are just like those crabs -- envy leads them to pull others down... or even destroy those who they're jealous of.
