But he had thought it a distant myth for himself. #Quote by Meredith Duran
Contentment quotes by Hugh Howey
#10. There had been a slice of time, somewhere sliding away from him now and fading into the slippery past, where Walker had been a happy man. Where his life should've ended to keep him from enduring any of the suffering beyond. But he had made it through that brief bliss and now could hardly recall it. He couldn't imagine what it felt like to rise with anticipation every morning, to fall asleep with contentment at the end of every day. #Quote by Hugh Howey

Those blessed with the karma of good actions praise the Lord and become true devotees #Quote by Guru Angad

Contentment quotes by Jorge Luis Borges
#18. The I feel a contentment in defeat, I reflected, simply because defeat has come, because it is infinitely connected to all the acts that are, that were, and that shall be, because to censure or deplore a single real act is to blaspheme against the universe. #Quote by Jorge Luis Borges
Contentment quotes by Kristen Ashley
#19. But that light that shone in Mitch's eyes told me he loved it more. Not because he liked roller coasters and crappy food.

No, because he liked to see us happy, he liked to make us that way and he didn't mind us knowing it.

From the beginning, he'd demonstrated generosity, selflessness and protectiveness, but there was something beautiful about sensing his contentment grow as the hours passed and he got more out of giving something to us than we got out of having it.

I knew before that Mitch would make a great dad.

But I knew right then that he'd build a beautiful family. #Quote by Kristen Ashley
Contentment quotes by Mark Haddon
#20. The secret of contentment lay in ignoring many things completely. #Quote by Mark Haddon

Contentment quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
#23. If one's life is simple, contentment has to come. Simplicity is extremely important for happiness. Having few desires, feeling satisfied with what you have, is very vital: satisfaction with just enough food, clothing, and shelter to protect yourself from the elements. And finally, there is an intense delight in abandoning faulty states of mind and in cultivating helpful ones in meditation. #Quote by Dalai Lama XIV
Contentment quotes by David Ignatow
#24. I should be content
to look at a mountain
for what it is
and not as a comment on my life. #Quote by David Ignatow
Contentment quotes by Josh Waitzkin
#25. This might sound like a dream for a seventeen-year-old boy, and I won't deny enjoying the attention, but professionally it was a nightmare. My game began to unravel. I caught myself thinking about how I looked thinking instead of losing myself in thought. The Grandmasters, my elders, were ignored and scowled at me. Some of them treated me like a pariah. I had won eight national championships and had more fans, public support and recognition than I could dream of, but none of this was helping my search for excellence, let alone for happiness. At a young age I came to know that there is something profoundly hollow about the nature of fame. I had spent my life devoted to artistic growth and was used to the sweaty-palmed sense of contentment one gets after many hours of intense reflection. This peaceful feeling had nothing to do with external adulation, and I yearned for a return to that innocent, fertile time. I missed just being a student of the game, #Quote by Josh Waitzkin
Contentment quotes by Robert Murray McCheyne
#26. Live near to God, and so all things will appear to you little In comparison to eternal realities.
#Quote by Robert Murray McCheyne
Contentment quotes by M.J. Ryan

Contentment quotes by George S. Clason
#29. I looked across into the uninviting distance and once again came to me the question, 'Have I the soul of a slave or the soul of a free man?' Then with clearness I realized that if I had the soul of a slave, I should give up, lie down in the desert and die, a fitting end for a runaway slave. "But if I had the soul of a free man, what then? Surely I would force my way back to Babylon, repay the people who had trusted me, bring happiness to my wife who had cared for me, bring peace and contentment to my parents. #Quote by George S. Clason
Contentment quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#30. The glass ceiling of happiness is held in place by two stout pillars, one psychological, the other biological. On the psychological level, happiness depends on expectations rather than objective conditions. We don't become satisfied by leading a peaceful and prosperous existence. Rather, we become satisfied when reality matches our expectations. The bad news is that as conditions improve, expectations balloon. Dramatic improvements in conditions, as humankind has experienced in recent decades, translate into greater expectations rather than greater contentment. If we don't do something about this, our future achievements too might leave us as dissatisfied as ever. On #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari
Contentment quotes by Frank C. Laubach
#32. I have tasted a thrill in fellowship with God which has made anything discordant with God disgusting. This afternoon the possession of God has caught me up with such sheer joy that I thought I never had known anything like it. God was so close and so amazingly lovely that I felt like melting all over with a strange blissful contentment. Having had this experience, which comes to me now several times a week, the thrill of filth repels me, for I know its power to drag me from God. And after an hour of close friendship with God my soul feels as clean as new-fallen snow. #Quote by Frank C. Laubach
Contentment quotes by Michael Chabon
#33. It holds my essential stuff, including a book - for true contentment, one must carry a book at all times, and great books so rarely fit, my friends, into one's pocket[ ... ] #Quote by Michael Chabon
Contentment quotes by Nikki Rowe
#34. Ive been waiting for this moment,
The one where looking back doesn't seem fascinating anymore & looking forward doesn't seem to be the greatest seek, I am so darn content with creating and living right now that there honestly isn't any room left for the ordinary. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Contentment quotes by Dave Eggers
#35. In the lives of humans, there are moments that feel very much apart from the majority of moments. That is, in any life there are many hundreds of thousands of hours and millions of minutes, and though those hours and minutes might be filled with contentment, or joy, or pain, few of them are bathed in the light of destiny. Very few of them feel as if one has been taken from their regular life and lifted into a new, extraordinary existence. It is these moments that bring an ordinary life into the realm of the extraordinary. It is these moments that are doorways from a life lived to eat and drink and sleep, into a life lived to do monumental things. #Quote by Dave Eggers
Contentment quotes by Donald Miller
#36. Job found contentment and even joy, outside the context of comfort, health or stability. He understood the story was not about him, and he cared more about the story then he did about himself. #Quote by Donald Miller
Contentment quotes by Anthony Liccione
#37. If you're not content with the small things, then you won't be content with the big things. #Quote by Anthony Liccione
Contentment quotes by Diyar Harraz
#38. It was bittersweet and lovely how this thing called family could make you feel belonged, wanted and complete. #Quote by Diyar Harraz
Contentment quotes by Anthony Liccione
#39. God may not give that instant dollar bill your seeking, but it's in the little change He brings, that will add to a dollar. #Quote by Anthony Liccione
Contentment quotes by Bernard Williams

Contentment quotes by Steve
#44. My demon is hating to have to do a regular day job. Being up on stage really helps me forget I have a life like that - when I did have a life like that. I find complete contentment and happiness when I'm playing in front of an audience. #Quote by Steve "Lips" Kudlow
Contentment quotes by Sinclair Lewis
#45. I'm not sure that I shall. I'm trying to develop my own large capacity for dullness and contentment. I've failed at every positive thing I've tried. I'd better 'settle down,' as they call it, and be satisfied to be - nothing. #Quote by Sinclair Lewis
Contentment quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche

Contentment quotes by Charles Bukowski
#49. That way I wouldn't have to see the guys in their walking shorts. They looked as if nothing had ever touched them- all well-mothered, protected, with a soft sheet of contentment. None of them had ever been in jail, or worked hard with their hands, or even gotten a traffic ticket. Skimmed-milk jollies, the whole bunch. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Contentment quotes by Libba Bray
#50. I am a jumble of passions, misgivings, and wants. It seems that I am always in a state of wishing and rarely in a state of contentment. #Quote by Libba Bray
Contentment quotes by Hanya Yanagihara
#51. There had been periods in his twenties when he would look at his friends and feel such a pure, deep contentment that he would wish the world around them would simply cease, that none of them would have to move from that moment, when everything was in equilibrium and his affection for them was perfect. But, of course, that was never to be: a beat later, and everything shifted, and the moment quietly vanished. #Quote by Hanya Yanagihara
Contentment quotes by Megan Carson
#52. I have found contentment and joy in being exactly where God wants me to be, and that is what makes me happy. #Quote by Megan Carson
Contentment quotes by John Updike
#53. Those born rich are harder to please than those born poor. #Quote by John Updike
Contentment quotes by Carrie Rocha
#54. The battle to be satisfied is a battle of focus. We often spend our time mulling over what we don't have instead of considering the benefits of what we already possess. To walk in a place of contentment, there are two things you have to do: Focus on the good aspects of what you already have. Stop thinking about what you don't have. #Quote by Carrie Rocha
Contentment quotes by Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra
#55. I would do what I pleased, and doing what I pleased, I should have my will, and having my will, I should be contented; and when one is contented, there is no more to be desired; and when there is no more to be desired, there is an end of it. #Quote by Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra
Contentment quotes by Linda Dillow

Contentment quotes by Orison Swett Marden
#57. There is a legend that when God was equipping man for his long life journey of exploration, the attendant good angel was about to add the gift of contentment and complete satisfaction.

Contentment quotes by Mary Roach
#58. If I couldn't use food or love to define contentment, I would use reading. #Quote by Mary Roach
Contentment quotes by Linda Babcock
#59. even when women can imagine changes that might increase their productivity at work, their happiness at home, or their overall contentment with their lives, their suppressed sense of entitlement creates real barriers to their asking. Because they're not dissatisfied with what they have and not sure they deserve more, women often settle for less. #Quote by Linda Babcock
Contentment quotes by Nancy Leigh DeMoss
#60. Contentment is just the realization that God has already provided for me today all that I need for my present peace and happiness. #Quote by Nancy Leigh DeMoss
Contentment quotes by Betty Smith
#61. Engaged," he said bitterly. "Everybody's engaged. Everybody in a small town is engaged or married or in trouble. There's nothing else to do in a small town. You go to school. You start walking home with a girl
maybe for no other reason than that she lives out your way. You grow up. She invites you to parties at her home. You go to other parties
eople ask you to bring her along; you're expected to take her home. Soon no one else takes her out. Everybody thinks she's your girl and then ... well, if you don't take her around, you feel like a heel. And then, because there's nothing else to do, you marry. And it works out all right if she's a decent girl (and most of the time she is) and you're a halfway decent fellow. No great passion but a kind of affectionate contentment. And then children come along and you give them the great love you kind of miss in each other. And the children gain in the long run. #Quote by Betty Smith
Contentment quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#62. A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one's neighbor - such is my idea of happiness. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Contentment quotes by Emily St. John Mandel
#63. No more social media, no more scrolling through litanies of dreams and nervous hopes and photographs of lunches, cries for help and expressions of contentment and relationship-status updates with heart icons whole or broken, plans to meet up later, pleas, complaints, desires, pictures of babies dressed as bears or peppers for Halloween. No more reading and commenting on the lives of others, and in so doing, feeling slightly less alone in the room. No #Quote by Emily St. John Mandel
Contentment quotes by Anita Shreve
#64. Altogether, Olympia thinks the sight of herself satisfactory, but not beautiful: a smile is missing, a certain light about the eyes. For how very different a woman will look when she has happiness, Olympia knows, when her beauty emanates from a sense of well-being or from knowing herself to be greatly loved. Even a plain woman will attract the eye if she is happy, while the most elaborately coiffed and bejeweled woman in a room, if she cannot summon contentment, will seem to be merely decorative. #Quote by Anita Shreve
Contentment quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#65. We can't direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails. For maximum happiness, peace, and contentment, may we choose a positive attitude. #Quote by Thomas S. Monson
Contentment quotes by Stephen Schwartz
#66. What we do in our lives is what gives us contentment and serenity and makes us feel like we are doing some kind of contribution. #Quote by Stephen Schwartz
Contentment quotes by Peter Heller
#67. Happiness was not a word that seemed to apply anymore, when she had lost so many close to her. There was a contentment that felt deeper, that acknowledged and accepted the quieter offerings of small joys-- of love and occasional peace in a life that was full of pain. #Quote by Peter Heller
Contentment quotes by Matt Chandler
#68. It is this spiritual stability, born of a gospel-focused heart, that gives Paul peace and contentment - and yes, joy - no matter where he finds himself. #Quote by Matt Chandler
Contentment quotes by John Connolly
#69. (To those who are themselves unhappy, the contentment of others can sometimes be mistaken for tedium.) #Quote by John Connolly
Contentment quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#70. One mind is enough for you to achieve intelligence.
One heart is enough for you to achieve kindness.
One soul is enough for you to achieve goodness.

One world is enough for us to achieve peacefulness. One life is enough for us to achieve happiness. One God is enough for us to achieve transcendence. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Contentment quotes by Charlie N. Holmberg
#71. Beside Thane - who watched the setting sun with such peace, with such light in his eyes - the "woman" seemed imaginary.
Because she is, Ceony realized, a second breeze tickling her skirt and blowing loose flower petals across her vision. These are the things Thane - Emery - hopes for.
She studied him, his peace and his contentment, the eyes that seemed to radiate life. She studied the shadowy woman beside him from head to foot. He wants to fall in love again. #Quote by Charlie N. Holmberg
Contentment quotes by Rasheed Ogunlaru
#72. People will ask you the question 'how is life treating you?' But my question is 'how are you treating life?' On that your happiness rests #Quote by Rasheed Ogunlaru
Contentment quotes by George MacDonald
#73. As the love of him who is love transcends ours as the heavens are higher than the earth, so must he desire in his child infinitely more than the most jealous love of the best mother can desire in hers. He would have him rid of all discontent, all fear, all grudging, all bitterness in word or thought, all gauging and measuring of his own with a different rod from that he would apply to another's. He will have no curling of the lip; no indifference in him to the man whose service in any form he uses; no desire to excel another, no contentment at gaining by his loss. He will not have him receive the smallest service without gratitude; would not hear from him a tone to jar the heart of another, a word to make it ache, be the ache ever so transient. #Quote by George MacDonald
Contentment quotes by Anonymous
#74. Psalm PSALM - NOTE ON 37. This can be called a wisdom psalm because it reflects on themes normally dealt with in the Bible's Wisdom Literature, particularly in Proverbs. It addresses the issue of why godless people often prosper. It shows that it really is better to stay loyal to the Lord - a loyalty expressed in contentment, honesty, and generosity. In his own good time, the Lord will make a clear distinction between the godless and the faithful. Meanwhile, the faithful must wait patiently. #Quote by Anonymous
Contentment quotes by Stephanie Laurens
#75. So how are the wedding plans progressing?" Richard asked, once they were out of the village.
"They aren't." Breckenridge heard his clipped tones, heard the irritation beneath. Didn't care if Richard did, too. "She's taken some nitwit notion into her head that I don't need to marry her, that she's going to go off and manage an orphanage in the country, or some such thing, so her social ruination doesn't matter."
"Ah." Richard nodded sagely. "She's playing stubborn."
"Playing?" Breckenridge shot him an irate look. "She's the definition of the word. I've already tried talking her around. Twice."
"I hate to break it to you, old son, but it won't be your honeyed words that change her mind."
Breckenridge snorted. "I've tried that, too-so far all that's gained me is..." An even deeper sense of being irrevocably linked to her.
Richard glanced at him curiously. "What?"
Breckenridge pulled a face, growled, "Damned if I know."
Richard grinned. "Well, whatever it takes, just console yourself with the thought that the end result will be worth it."
Breckenridge cast Richard a sharp glance, saw the open contentment in his face. Felt compelled to ask, "So what did you have to do?"
Richard's smile deepened. "The same thing we've all have to do-prostrate ourselves at their dainty feet, swear undying love, and mean it. #Quote by Stephanie Laurens
Contentment quotes by Pat Conroy
#76. We had made the error of staying small – and there is no more unforgivable crime in America. #Quote by Pat Conroy
Contentment quotes by Willa Cather
#77. Most beautiful of all was the tarnished gold of the elms, with a little brown in it, a little bronze, a little blue, even
a blue like amethyst, which made them melt into the azure haze with a kind of happiness, a harmony of mood that filled the air with content. #Quote by Willa Cather
Contentment quotes by Susie Larson
#78. Lord, I trusted You and found You trustworthy. I now know that when You ask me to wait it's because You're making me ready. You had to remove from me the very things the enemy would have used against me. Your ways are always motivated by love. I embrace contentment because You are always my safest place. My refuge. #Quote by Susie Larson
Contentment quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#79. Don't waste you energy to compare your life with others. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Contentment quotes by Randy Alcorn
#80. Whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him (Hebrews 11:6, emphasis added). Call that payoff contentment, satisfaction, peace, or excitement - it all adds up to one word: happiness #Quote by Randy Alcorn
Contentment quotes by Wayne W. Dyer
#81. Feelings of despair, anger, hatred, bitterness, stress, and depression stem from the ego's anxiety and insistence on living up to an external standard. The result is the anguish of not measuring up or fitting in properly. The ego will seldom allow you to rest, and demands more and more because it's terrified that you'll be called a failure. When you move beyond ego and make your higher self the dominant force in your life, you'll begin to feel that contentment and inner glow of peace and success that characterizes the extra mile. 2. #Quote by Wayne W. Dyer
Contentment quotes by Kazuo Ishiguro
#82. All I know is that I've wasted all these years looking for something, a sort of trophy I'd get only if I really, really did enough to deserve it. But I don't want it anymore, I want something else now, something warm and sheltering, something I can turn to, regardless of what I do, regardless of who I become. Something that will just be there, always, like tomorrow's sky. That's what I want now, and I think it's what you should want too. But it will be too late soon. We'll become too set to change. If we don't take our chance now, another may never come for either of us. #Quote by Kazuo Ishiguro
Contentment quotes by Claude Monet
#83. I'm quite content: although what I'm doing is far from being as I should like, I am complemented often enough all the same ... #Quote by Claude Monet
Contentment quotes by Christopher Ryan
#84. Poverty is not a certain small amount of goods, nor is it just a relation between means and ends; above all it is a relation between people. Poverty is a social status. As such it is the invention of civilization. Socrates made the same point 2,400 years ago: He is richest who is content with least, for contentment is the wealth of nature. #Quote by Christopher Ryan
Contentment quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#85. We often feel that we lack something, and seem to see that very quality in someone else, promptly attributing all our own qualities to him too, and a kind of ideal contentment as well. And so the happy mortal is a model of complete perfection
which we have ourselves created. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Contentment quotes by Taylor Caldwell
#86. There is no solid satisfaction in any career for a woman like myself. There is no home, no true freedom, no hope, no joy, no expectation for tomorrow, no contentment. I would rather cook a meal for a man and bring him his slippers and feel myself in the protection of his arms than have all the citations and awards and honors I have received worldwide, including the Ribbon of Legion of Honor and my property and my bank accounts. They mean nothing to me. And I am only one among the millions of sad women like myself. #Quote by Taylor Caldwell
Contentment quotes by Robert Southey
#87. It is not for man to rest in absolute contentment. #Quote by Robert Southey
Contentment quotes by James Gates Percival
#88. Happy the life, that in a peaceful stream,
Obscure, unnoticed through the vale has flow'd;
The heart that ne'er was charm'd by fortune's gleam
Is ever sweet contentment's blest abode. #Quote by James Gates Percival
Contentment quotes by Gift Gugu Mona
#89. I Pray For This Girl

Oh yes! For the young girl
Who just landed on Mother Earth!
The one about to turn five with a smile
Or the other one who just turned nine
She is not only mine
My Mother's, Grandmother's
Neighbour's or friend's daughter
She is like a flower
Very fragile, yet so gorgeous
An Angel whose wings are invisible

I speak life to this young or older girl
She might not have a say
But expects the world to be a better place
Whether affluent or impoverished
No matter her state of mind
Her background must not determine
How she is treated
She needs to live, she has to thrive!

Lord God Almighty
Sanctify her unique journey
Save her from the claws of the enemy
Shield her against any brutality
Restore her if pain becomes a reality
Embrace her should joy pass swiftly
When emptiness fills her heart severely
May you be her sanctuary!

Dear Father, please give her
The honour to grow without being frightened
Hope whenever she feels forsaken
Contentment even after her heart was broken
Comfort when she is shaken
Courage when malice creeps in
Calm when she needs peace
Strength when she is weak
Freedom to climb on a mountain peak
And wisdom to tackle any season

Guide her steps, keep her from tumbling
My Lord, if she does sometimes stumble
Lift her up, so she can ri #Quote by Gift Gugu Mona
Contentment quotes by Rasheed Ogunlaru
#90. While being you and truly sharing what you do will bring happiness to others, you won't find contentment merely trying to keep others happy. #Quote by Rasheed Ogunlaru
Contentment quotes by John Ruskin
#91. There are, indeed, two forms of discontent: one laborious, the other indolent and complaining. We respect the man of laborious desire, but let us not suppose that his restlessness is peace, or his ambition meekness. It is because of the special connection of meekness with contentment that it is promised that the meek shall 'inherit the earth.' Neither covetous men, nor the grave, can inherit anything; they can but consume. Only contentment can possess. #Quote by John Ruskin
Contentment quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#92. You have only mastered peace when you have conquered bitterness,
mastered patience when you have conquered anger,
mastered joy when you have conquered sorrow,
mastered strength when you have conquered pain,
mastered contentment when you have conquered greed,
mastered truth when you have conquered ignorance,
mastered faith when you have conquered doubt,
mastered courage when you have conquered fear,
mastered kindness when you have conquered intolerance,
mastered humility when you have conquered ego,
mastered joy when you have conquered grief,
mastered hope when you have conquered despair,
mastered mercy when you have conquered wrath,
mastered love when you have conquered hate,
mastered life when you have conquered death,
and mastered light when you have conquered darkness. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Contentment quotes by Adolf Guggenbhuhl-Craig
#93. We are creatures whose behavior cannot be simply explained as a striving for survival and happiness, for release of tension and contentment. #Quote by Adolf Guggenbhuhl-Craig
Contentment quotes by Emily Arden
#94. Rosa had achieved the sort of serene and confident happiness that Tamsin had never really known. She was connected to Roberto in a way that made Tamsin long for something similar. A man with whom she could share all parts of her life, someone to be her equal and her inspiration. #Quote by Emily Arden
Contentment quotes by Douglas Coupland
#95. Only pain makes it grow stronger. One sorrow makes it kind. Contentment makes it wither, and joy seems to build walls around it. The heart is perverse, and it is cruel. I hate the heart and seems to hate me. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Contentment quotes by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
#96. Pleasure simply brings more craving, but the problem is that we try to get contentment through pleasure. True contentment can only come through service. #Quote by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
Contentment quotes by Ian Bogost
#97. The ultimate lesson games give is not about gratification and reward, nor about media and technology, nor about art and design. It is a lesson about modesty, attention, and care. Play cultivates humility, for it requires us to treat things as they are rather than as we wish them to be. If we let it, play can be the secret to contentment. Not because it provides happiness or pleasure - although it certainly can - but because it helps us pursue a greater respect for the things, people, and situations around us. #Quote by Ian Bogost
Contentment quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#98. Did it really have to be like this?__that the source of Man's contentment becomes the source of his misery? #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Contentment quotes by Marissa Meyer
#99. My stepmother is not only powerful because the people fear her, she is powerful because she can make them love her when she needs them to. We think that if we choose to do only good, then we are only good. We can make people happy. We can offer tranquility or contentment or love, and that must be good. We do not see the falsehood becoming its own brand of cruelty."
The ship trembled and their speed increased. Luna blurred beneath them.
"Once," Winter continued, pushing the words out of her lungs. "Once I believed with all my heart that I was doing good. But I was wrong. #Quote by Marissa Meyer
Contentment quotes by Rabih Alameddine
#100. I can see myself sitting all day in my chair, immersed in lives, plots, and sentences, intoxicated by words and chimeras, paralyzed by satisfaction and contentment, reading until the deepening twilight, until I can no longer make out the words, until my mind begins to wander, until my aching muscles are no longer able to keep the book aloft. Joy is the anticipation of joy. Reading a fine book for the first time is as sumptuous as the first sip of orange juice that breaks the fast in Ramadan. #Quote by Rabih Alameddine
Contentment quotes by William Longgood
#101. Can we be sure that they are incapable of the feelings or sentiments that are believed to place them on a lower scale than humans? Do we deny sensitivity to all of the so-called lower orders to blunt, protect, and, ultimately, deny our own? We will see that bees can grieve over teh loss of a queen, sound war cries or hum with contentment; they can be angry, docile, ferocious, playful, aggressive, appear happy, or utter pitiful sounds of distress. are these not emotions akin to ours, merely expressed differently? #Quote by William Longgood
Contentment quotes by Julie Miller
#102. That was bliss. Being cared for. Wanted. Feeling so necessary to someone's existence that there was no place for the loneliness inside her. #Quote by Julie Miller
Contentment quotes by Aleksandra Layland
#103. We had little but we didn't know we had little. It seemed to us that we had much and we were very content. #Quote by Aleksandra Layland
Contentment quotes by J.L. Mac
#104. I couldn't possibly love you any more than I already do. Josephine, my heart resides with you forevermore." He remembers the quote on the back of my mother's watch. The same quote my father said to my mother. My heart squeezes painfully and I swear I could die of contentment. #Quote by J.L. Mac
Contentment quotes by David Bowie
#105. Since early middle ages when people generally taking away the barbarity of their like, were pretty content. Although it was all an illicit contentment, what with the slave systems all over the world, in England especially, the peasants and the master, etc. People were incredibly content. #Quote by David Bowie
Contentment quotes by Richard K. Morgan
#106. In the Envoy Corps, you take what is offered, Virginia Vidaura said, somewhere in the corridors of my memory. And that must sometimes be enough. #Quote by Richard K. Morgan
Contentment quotes by Miss Brit
#107. Gratitude is a way of contentment. #Quote by Miss Brit
Contentment quotes by Arthur W. Pink
#108. Contentment, then, is the product of a heart resting in God. It is the soul's enjoyment of that peace that passes all understanding. It is the outcome of my will being brought into subjection to the Divine will. It is the blessed assurance that God does all things well, and is, even now, making all things work together for my ultimate good. #Quote by Arthur W. Pink
Contentment quotes by Paul Brand
#109. In a consumer society, expectations dare not plateau, because a growing economy depends on rising expectations ... The more we let our level of contentment be determined by outside factors-a new car, fashionable clothes, a prestigious career, social status-the more we relinquish control over our own happiness. #Quote by Paul Brand
Contentment quotes by Robert A. Johnson
#110. There is a popular heresy abroad today which states that if a little is good, more is better. Following this dictum creates a life which is never fulfilling. Even while you are engaged in one rich experience you are looking about for another. There is no contentment because future plans are always intruding on the present. #Quote by Robert A. Johnson
Contentment quotes by Susan L. Taylor
#111. We know that material things don't offer contentment, but we still buy more-more of the props and gadgets our culture tells us we must have in order to be happy and "happening." Our addiction to consumption distracts us from seeing that we are disconnected from ourselves, from our truth and from one another. Any euphoria we gain from our material gains is fleeting at best. #Quote by Susan L. Taylor
Contentment quotes by Jay Woodman
#112. Just find your way, like a river settling into its bed, and the sigh of the wind over a lake, light but restful ... content with the joy in the arc of an arm throwing a ball for a dog to fetch, the ease of the grassy slope stretching away, birds in the trees singing sweet high notes, flowers growing close in the ditch. #Quote by Jay Woodman
Contentment quotes by Eva
Mindful breathing is a basic wonderful pleasure for life. Breathing calms our body and mind to unify our soul within the present moment. Breathing is a supreme gift from Mother Nature, giving universal pranic energy which one guides within.

Intentions, wishes and dreams can come true. Not necessarily all at once, but herein lies the splendour of life's journey. The secret tonic to success is belief and imagination, blended with confidence to open your heart and follow your dreams.

Savadhyaya is the practice of inward reflection, honest self-observation and learning. Whatever you do, wherever you are, find contentment and simply be there, because that's exactly where you need to be. #Quote by Eva
Contentment quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#114. A small artist is content with art; a great artist is content with nothing except everything. #Quote by Gilbert K. Chesterton
Contentment quotes by Kristin Armstrong
#115. Disappointment is a sticky one, because no one can steal contentment, joy, gratitude, or peace - we have to give it away. #Quote by Kristin Armstrong
Contentment quotes by Billy Graham
#116. The happiness which brings enduring worth to life is not the superficial happiness that is dependent on circumstances. It is the happiness and contentment that fills the soul even in the midst of the most distressing circumstances and the most bitter environment. It is the kind of happiness that grins when things go wrong and smiles through the tears. The happiness for which our souls ache is one undisturbed by success or failure, one which will deeply root inside us and give us inward relaxation, peace, and contentment, no matter what the surface problems may be. That kind of happiness stands in need of no outward stimulas. #Quote by Billy Graham
Contentment quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#117. You can be happy irrespective of what you have. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Contentment quotes by Mohith Agadi
#118. I only work at the pleasure of myself. #Quote by Mohith Agadi

#119. Contentment is the foundation of true Happiness. The Happiness that comes from fulfilling desires can never be permanent.-RVM #Quote by R.v.m.
Contentment quotes by Arthur W. Pink
#120. Contentment ... is the soul's enjoyment of that peace that passes all understanding. #Quote by Arthur W. Pink
Contentment quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#121. Fortune craves not Contentment, for it is an earthly hope, and its desires are embraced by union with objects, while Contentment is naught but heartfelt. #Quote by Kahlil Gibran
Contentment quotes by Walter Savage Landor
#122. Contentment is better than divinations or visions. #Quote by Walter Savage Landor
Contentment quotes by Dale Carnegie
#123. Psychiatrists declare that most of our fatigue derives from our mental and emotional attitudes ... What kinds of emotional factors tire the sedentary (or sitting) worker? Joy? Contentment? No! Never! Boredom, resentment, a feeling of not being appreciated, a feeling of futility, hurry, anxiety, worry-those are the emotional factors that exhaust the sitting worker, make him susceptible to colds, reduce his output, and send him home with a nervous headache. Yes, we get tired because our emotions produce nervous tensions in the body. #Quote by Dale Carnegie
Contentment quotes by Leon Kass
#124. If you have easy self-contentment, you might have a very, very cheap source of happiness. #Quote by Leon Kass
Contentment quotes by Robert Burns
#125. I'll be merry and free, I'll be sad for nae-body; If nae-body cares for me, I'll care for nae-body. #Quote by Robert Burns
Contentment quotes by Jane Austen
#126. You must learn some of my philosophy. Think only of the past as its remembrance gives you pleasure.'
"I cannot give you credit for any philosophy of the kind. Your retrospections must be so totally void of reproach, that the contentment arising from them is not of philosophy, but, what is much better, of innocence. #Quote by Jane Austen
Contentment quotes by Hermann Hesse
#127. When I have neither pleasure nor pain and have been breathing for a while the lukewarm insipid air of these so called good and tolerable days, I feel so bad in my childish soul that I smash my moldering lyre of thanksgiving in the face of the slumbering god of contentment and would rather feel the very devil burn in me than this warmth of a well-heated room. A wild longing for strong emotions and sensations seethes in me, a rage against this toneless, flat, normal and sterile life. I have a mad impulse to smash something, a warehouse, perhaps, or a cathedral, or myself, to commit outrages, to pull off the wigs of a few revered idols ... #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Contentment quotes by Laurence Shames
#128. One of the things Key West teaches is that disappointment and contentment can go together more easily than you would probably imagine. #Quote by Laurence Shames
Contentment quotes by Alain De Botton
#129. Pegging your contentment to the overall state of the world rather than of your own life: the basis of morality, or a sort of madness? #Quote by Alain De Botton
Contentment quotes by Kevin Kelly
#130. Our mission as humans is not only to discover our fullest selves in the technium, and to find full contentment, but to expand the possibilities for others. Greater technology will selfishly unleash our talents, but it will also unselfishly unleash others: our children, and all children to come. #Quote by Kevin Kelly
Contentment quotes by Albert J. Nock
#131. According to my observations, mankind are among the most easily tamable and domesticable of all creatures in the animal world . They are readily reducible to submission, so readily conditionable (to coin a word) as to exhibit an almost incredibly enduring patience under restraint and oppression of the most flagrant character. So far are they from displaying any overweening love of freedom that they show a singular contentment with a condition of servitorship, often showing a curious canine pride in it, and again often simply unaware that they are existing in that condition. #Quote by Albert J. Nock
Contentment quotes by Dalai Lama
#132. An important distinction can be made between religion and spirituality. Religion [is] concerned with faith in the claims to salvation of one faith tradition ... Spirituality is concerned with qualities of the human spirit, love and compassion, patience, tolerance, forgiveness, contentment, a sense of responsibility, a sense of harmony, that bring happiness both to self. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Contentment quotes by Bryant McGill
#133. Without inner-peace and contentment, success will ultimately destroy you. #Quote by Bryant McGill

Contentment quotes by Abu Bakr
#136. There is greatness in the fear of God, contentment in faith of God, and honour in humility. #Quote by Abu Bakr
Contentment quotes by Alan Bradley
#137. No sooner was I safely among the gravestones than a great feeling of warmth and calm contentment came sweeping over me.
Life among the dead.
This was where I was meant to be!
What a revelation! And what a place to have it!
I could succeed at whatever I chose. I could, for instance, become an undertaker. Or a pathologist. A detective, a gravedigger, a tombstone maker, or even the world's greatest murderer.
Suddenly the world was my oyster
even if it was a dead one. #Quote by Alan Bradley
Contentment quotes by Albert Nobel

Contentment quotes by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
#140. Contentment and happiness! Do everything happily. Walk,
talk, sit happily; even if you complain against somebody,
do it happily. #Quote by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
Contentment quotes by John Bunyan
#141. I am content with what I have, little be it, or much. #Quote by John Bunyan
Contentment quotes by Andrew Weil
#142. I think instead [of happiness] we should be working for contentment ... an inner sense of fulfillment that's relatively independent of external circumstances. #Quote by Andrew Weil

Discontent makes rich men poor. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Contentment quotes by Brent Top
#145. Whatever worldly thing we may covet - zealously striving to obtain and then retain - never seems to bring an end to our desires. Covetousness, envy, jealousy, and greed always escalate into a vicious spiral, as we seek greater and greater gratification but find less and less contentment ... Striving to acquire the things of the world not only does not bring lasting happiness and peace, but it drives us to seek more. When "all we've ever wanted" is grounded in the temporal trappings of this world, it is never enough! #Quote by Brent Top
Contentment quotes by Anthony Liccione
#146. People are complaining of having rags and not riches, but I find it a blessing just to have rags, to wipe away the dirt and dust that may come in the course of life. #Quote by Anthony Liccione
Contentment quotes by Jessi Gage
#147. His Malina was a mystery, a lovely and welcome mystery. He couldn't resist smoothing his palm over her silky hair. Stroking her like that, over and over again filled him with peace. Concerns about his mill and Steafan and all that Wilhelm might expect from him floated away on a cloud of contentment. Until he felt warm wetness on his skin where her face nestled. "Are ye weeping?" "No," she said, but her voice caught on a sob. "There," he said, "now we have both told a lie to the other. We are even." Whatever had her distraught, her heart wasn't so heavy that she couldn't give a small chuckle. "Maybe I'm crying just a little," she said. "It's fine, though. Don't worry. Get some sleep." "I canna. My da told me a good husband doesna lay his head down for the night if his household isna in order and his wife isna content." "He sounds like a very responsible man. Like father, like son." No one had given him as much to feel proud over as this woman. #Quote by Jessi Gage
Contentment quotes by Honore De Balzac
#148. No one was irritable; we have never known anyone to remain unhappy while digesting a good meal. We enjoy lingering in a becalmed state, a kind of midpoint between the reverie of a thinker and the contentment of a cud-chewing animal, a state that should be termed the physical melancholy of gastronomy. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Contentment quotes by Eric Gibbons
#149. Art is often born from inner struggle. Artists are plagued by impulses they must express. Contentment does not seek action but struggle always seeks release, and for the creative it can take the form of art. #Quote by Eric Gibbons
Contentment quotes by Moazzam Shaikh
#150. Happiness is the contentment in the heart, peace of mind, a sense of stability, a right attitude and being content with what is sufficient. #Quote by Moazzam Shaikh
Contentment quotes by Georges Rodenbach
#151. The main thing for inner contentment is to be in a state of grace. And there is an artistic state of grace, for art is a kind of religion. #Quote by Georges Rodenbach
Contentment quotes by Michael Dorris
#152. At different stages in our lives, the signs of love may vary: dependence, attraction, contentment, worry, loyalty, grief, but at heart the source is always the same. Human beings have the rare capacity to connect with each other, against all odds #Quote by Michael Dorris
Contentment quotes by Stephen Richards
#153. Giving materialistically is the soft option, but when you give from what you do for others then your reward is immeasurable contentment. #Quote by Stephen Richards
Contentment quotes by Russell D. Moore
#154. We get too comfortable with this orphanage universe, though. We sit in our pews, or behind our pulpits, knowing that our children watch "Christian" cartoons instead of slash films. We vote for the right candidates and know all the right "worldview" talking points. And we're content with the world we know, just adjusted a little for our identity as Christians. That's precisely why so many of us are so atrophied in our prayers, why our prayers rarely reach the level of "groanings too deep for words" (Rom 8:26). We are too numbed to be as frustrated as the Spirit is with the way things are. #Quote by Russell D. Moore
Contentment quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo

Contentment quotes by Paul David Tripp
#159. What will it be for you today - the discontent of doubt and fear or the contentment of peace and rest? #Quote by Paul David Tripp
Contentment quotes by Carolyn G. Heilbrun
#160. We women have lived too much with closure: "If he notices me, if I marry him, if I get into college, if I get this work accepted, if I get this job"
there always seems to loom the possibility of something being over, settled, sweeping clear the way for contentment. This is the delusion of a passive life. When the hope for closure is abandoned, when there is an end to fantasy, adventure for women will begin. #Quote by Carolyn G. Heilbrun
Contentment quotes by Lisa Grunwald
#161. But 'contentment'. Is that happiness? Or is that only resignation wearing a funny hat? #Quote by Lisa Grunwald

If you value truth, you will value knowledge.
If you value knowledge, you will value insight.
If you value insight, you will value understanding.
If you value understanding, you will value wisdom.
If you value wisdom, you will value enlightenment.

If you value peace, you will value contentment.
If you value contentment, you will value happiness.
If you value happiness, you will value joy.
If you value joy, you will value hope.
If you value hope, you will value faith.
If you value faith, you will value love. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo

#168. Give yourself the love and attention you desire, it's the starting point of contentment. #Quote by Rob Liano
Contentment quotes by Dalai Lama
#169. We are beset by problems and if we look for their source, we find they arise because of our selfishness, because we tend to pursue our own interests at the expense of others. Our various religious traditions exist to help us reduce these problems. They all teach ways to overcome suffering through cultivating love and compassion, tolerance, patience and contentment. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Contentment quotes by Joshua Ferris
#170. We suffered failures of imagination just like everyone else, our daring was wanting, and our daily contentment too nearly adequate for us to give it up. #Quote by Joshua Ferris

#173. In home life contentment is an essential to daily comfort. One discontented person in the house creates an atmosphere fatal to tranquillity. #Quote by Margaret Elizabeth Sangster
Contentment quotes by Rajneesh
#174. Contentment is the door to god. If one is contented, one has already arrived. And the meaning of contentment is absolute acceptance as you are. Contentment means acceptance, discontentment means non-acceptance. A wants to become B - that is discontent. A is perfectly happy in being A, there is no desire to become B - that is contentment. #Quote by Rajneesh
Contentment quotes by Craig Groeschel
#175. God says happiness is contentment with what you already have, with what He provides you, with what you can share. #Quote by Craig Groeschel
Contentment quotes by Henry Miller
#176. I couldn't allow myself to think about her very long; if I had I would have jumped off the bridge. It's strange. I had become so reconciled to this life without her, and yet if I thought about her only for a minute it was enough to pierce the bone and marrow of my contentment and shove me back again into the agonizing gutter of my wretched past. #Quote by Henry Miller
Contentment quotes by Stephen O'Connor
#177. People adjust to their circumstances. People subject to the most barbaric cruelty can still delight in a baby's laugh or feel moments of perfect contentment lying on a grassy hillside in the sun. There is something beautiful in our capacity to accommodate atrocity, even if it can also be our undoing. #Quote by Stephen O'Connor
Contentment quotes by Margaux Bergen
#178. There is an elegance to knowing who you are that will help you unfold a sweet tolerance for yourself. Knowing and liking yourself will then allow you to be kind and compassionate to others, deeply aware that they want the same things: love and contentment. #Quote by Margaux Bergen
Contentment quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#179. I simply vowed to the universe that I would write forever, regardless of the result. I promised that I would try to be brave about it, and grateful, and as uncomplaining as I could possibly be. I also promised that I would never ask writing to take care of me financially, but that I would always take care of it - meaning that I would always support us both, by any means necessary. I did not ask for any external rewards for my devotion; I just wanted to spend the rest of my life as near to writing as possible - forever close to that source of all my curiosity and contentment. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Contentment quotes by James Salter
#180. She formed her life day by day, taking as its materials the emptiness and panic as well as the rushes, like fever, of contentment. I am beyond fear of solitude, she thought, I am past it. The idea thrilled her. I am beyond it and I will not sink. This submission, this triumph made her stronger. It was as if finally, after having passed through inferior stages, her life had found a form worthy of it. #Quote by James Salter
Contentment quotes by Marian Keyes
#181. A large battalion of my thoughts was marching determinedly on its way to Annoyance but it was distracted and took a wrong turn at Adam and found, to its surprise, that it had ended up in the entirely different destination of Dreamy Contentment. #Quote by Marian Keyes
Contentment quotes by Emily Ley
#182. I've learned, above all, that less is truly beautiful. That happiness and contentment can't be manufactured, bought, subscribed to, or achieved by adding more to our lives. It's the counter-intuitive actioni of stripping away the excess that allows us to discover beauty and joy in the good lives we already have. #Quote by Emily Ley
Contentment quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#183. Hoarding can never end, for the heart of man always covets for more, its raging appetites can only be quenched by the heavy sands of the grave. #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Contentment quotes by Dalai Lama
#184. True happiness comes from having a sense of inner peace and contentment, which in turn must be achieved by cultivating altruism, love and compassion, and by eliminating anger, selfishness and greed. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Contentment quotes by Jeff Zentner
#185. I wake up one day and it's twenty-plus years later, and here I am still. That's getting left behind. And even then, you can have a decent life. You know why I'm still here? It's because I'm content. Maybe even happy. I found my path. My life is simple. I wake up in the morning. I eat my Cheerios, drink my coffee, think my thoughts. I go home after work and sit on my back patio and pet my dog and listen to music and myself breathing. It feels good to be alive and exist. Most things haven't worked out for me - especially love - but that's all right. I'm not as pretty as I used to be. More of my life's behind me than in front of me. Who knows how many years I took off it while I was partying. But I'm a lot healthier now, if you can believe it.
"I get lonely sometimes, but so does everyone else. We're all looking for some sort of salvation in something sometimes we try to find it in people. We find out salvation, and it slips through our fingers. We find it again. We get left behind. Living is hurting, but I'll take living over the alternative any day. Consciousness is a marvelous gift. It took almost dying to make me realize that. Hell, I'm just rambling now. Anyway, having said all this, you did not get left behind. #Quote by Jeff Zentner
Contentment quotes by William Ames
#186. In contentment and joy are found the height and perfection of all love towards our neighbor. #Quote by William Ames
Contentment quotes by Kirsten Miller
#187. But there was still something missing. Something that nagged at her-an emptiness she couldn't explain. There were mornings she woke with her heart pounding wildly and the sensation of arms wrapped around her. But the feeling slipped away the moment she opened her eyes, and no matter how quickly she squeezed them shut, she couldn't recapture the contentment she'd felt. #Quote by Kirsten Miller
Contentment quotes by Sam Byers
#188. She used to test his commitment by hurting him. She threatened to leave him, or cheat on him, then watched his face and measured the depth of his feelings for her by the extent to which it crumbled. He was insecure; prone to worry. If he ever became confident, she thought, it would mean that he no longer loved her, since to love someone is to worry; to need someone is to fear the inevitability of their absence. Without fear, she thought, without drama, there was only the grey blankness of late-middle-age relationships, where, as far as she could make out, concepts like love and passion were replaced by what she saw as the wretched terminology of codependent ennui: companionship, contentment, compromise; where one person's love for another was no longer stated simply because it was no longer questioned; where the key indicator not only of love but also of solidity would simply be the mere fact of the solidity and love that had gone before. No, no, she thought. Better the sense of odds, of struggle; the ongoing and repeated relief of trauma endured and survived. Without it, there was only the security of the unimaginative: an unspokenly dwindling sex life; roiling resentment; his-and-hers facial hair. #Quote by Sam Byers
Contentment quotes by John Tillotson
#189. Piety and virtue are not only delightful for the present, but they leave peace and contentment behind them. #Quote by John Tillotson
Contentment quotes by Steve Maraboli
#190. There is a distinct feeling of contentment that engulfs your entire being after a day well lived, a battle well fought, and a purpose tirelessly pursued. #Quote by Steve Maraboli
Contentment quotes by Henry Ward Beecher
#191. The rarest feeling that ever lights a human face is the contentment of a loving soul. #Quote by Henry Ward Beecher
Contentment quotes by Ray Charles
#192. There's such a thing as too much happiness and sadness. What I'm after is contentment. #Quote by Ray Charles
Contentment quotes by Louisa Edwards
#193. She'd learned the trick of it a long time ago, and she'd do well to remember it now. The key to happiness, or at least, the key to contentment.
Don't want what you can't have #Quote by Louisa Edwards
Contentment quotes by Walter Wangerin Jr.
#194. But this is my contentment, that I've lost what I never needed and what I need I can never lose: these two things, universal nature and one's personal virtue.
For this is the intention of the creator of the world, whatever he may be - whether an all-powerful Deity, or some incorporeal Reason contriving vast works, or a divine Spirit pervading all things from the least to the largest with a uniform energy, or Fate, or an inalterable sequence of Causes clinging one to another - whatever the Intender, I say, this is his intention: that nothing of ours can fall under the control of others except that which is finally and truly worthless to us.
