Contentment Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Contentment

Graham, Gordon

What makes us discontented with our condition is the absurdly exaggerated idea we have of the happiness of others.
Proverb, French

A sound mind in a sound body, is a short, but full description of a happy state in this World: he that has these two, has little more to wish for; and he that wants either of them, will be little the better for anything else.
Locke, John

26.
To the right, books; to the left, a tea-cup. In front of me, the fireplace; behind me, the post. There is no greater happiness than this.
Teiga
