Contentment Quotes

True contentment comes with empathy.

Tim Finn

Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.

Buddha

Contentment is accepting the world as an imperfect place.

Anon xx

Yes, in the poor man's garden grow far more than herbs and flowers kind thoughts, contentment, peace of mind, and joy for weary hours.

Mary Howitt 1799

Contentment is accepting the world as an imperfect place.

Anon xx

Children internalize their parents' unhappiness. Fortunately, they absorb our contentment just as readily.

Lucille Dsire Ball

One should receive pleasures that bring contentment to the Creator. This means that the creature will want to bestow upon the Creator, and will have fear of the Creator, of receiving for oneself, since reception of pleasure - when one receives for one's own benefit - removes him from cleaving to the Creator.

Baruch Shalom Ashlag

"Behold yon miserable creature. That Point is a Being like ourselves, but confined to the non-dimensional Gulf. He is himself his own World, his own Universe; of any other than himself he can form no conception; he knows not Length, nor Breadth, nor Height, for he has had no experience of them; he has no cognizance even of the number Two; nor has he a thought of Plurality; for he is himself his One and All, being really Nothing. Yet mark his perfect self-contentment, and hence learn this lesson, that to be self-contented is to be vile and ignorant, and that to aspire is better than to be blindly and impotently happy. Now listen." He ceased; and there arose from the little buzzing creature a tiny, low, monotonous, but distinct tinkling, as from one of your Spaceland phonographs, from which I caught these words, "Infinite beatitude of existence! It is; and there is none else beside It."

Edwin Abbott

any lasting satisfaction, any contentment that we can achieve, is the result of forgetting self, or merging subject with object in a harmony that is of body, mind and spirit.

Aga Khan III
