For it is said that humans are never satisfied, that you give them one thing and they want something more. And this is said in disparagement, whereas it is one of the greatest talents the species has and one that has made it superior to animals that are satisfied with what they have.

The Pearl
And what I have, what I am, is enough, was always enough for me, and as far as my dear little sweet little future is concerned I have no qualms, I have a good time coming.

Nothing satisfies the man who is not satisfied with a little.

The Consolations of Philosophy
He is very foolish who aims at satisfying all the world and his father
The fastidious are unfortunate; nothing satisfies them
Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment. Full effort is full victory
Satisfy a few to please many is bad
As long as I have a want, I have a reason for living. Satisfaction is death
When a man is pleased with the lot of others, he is dissatisfied with his own, as a matter of course


On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
