Contentedness Quotes
Showing: 1 - 10 Contentedness Quotes of 34
All fortune belongs to him who has a contented mind. Is not the whole earth covered with leather for him whose feet are encased in shoes?
He has enough who is content.
And you have the right to arrange your own life under the blue sky and the hot sun, to get a drink of water, to stretch, to travel wherever you like without a convoy. So what's this about unwiped feet? And what's this about a mother-in-law? What about the main thing in life, all its riddles? ... Do not pursue what is illusory-property and position: all that is gained at the expense of your nerves decade after decade ... Live with a steady superiority over life-don't be afraid of misfortune, and do not yearn after happiness; it is, after all, all the same: the bitter doesn't last forever, and the sweet never fills the cup to overflowing. It is enough if you don't freeze in the cold and if thirst and hunger don't claw at your insides. If your back isn't broken, if your feet can walk, if both arms can bend, if both eyes see, and if both ears hear, then whom should you envy? And why? ... and prize above all else in the world those who love you and wish you well.
The secret of contentment is the realization that life is a gift, not a right.
That best of blessings, a contented mind.
A contented mind is the greatest blessing a man can enjoy in this world.
A contented heart is an even sea in the midst of all storms.
A little bird is content with a little nest.
Content is better than riches.
He who is content in his poverty, is wonderfully rich.
