Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.
Naught’s had, all’s spent – where our desire is got without content. (Macbeth)
My motto is: Contented with little, yet wishing for more.
He who is not contented with what he has, would not be contented with what he would like to have.
When we cannot find contentment in ourselves it is useless to seek it elsewhere.
Contentment is natural wealth, luxury is artificial poverty.
The world is full of people looking for spectacular happiness while they snub contentment.
He is the richest who is content with the least.
An Egg today is better than a Hen tomorrow.
There’s many a life of sweet content, whose virtue is environment.
