40 Self Satisfaction Quotes and Sayings To Live a Free Life

Let our motivating satisfaction quotes and sayings from acclaimed thinkers and personalities help us find real contentment in life.

Ancient Chinese philosopher Laozi has a beautiful quote about satisfaction, ‘ He who knows that enough is enough, will always have enough.’

We generally remain unfulfilled and dissatisfied in most of our life endeavors because we look for mental satisfaction indirectly through material things.

We aim for mental peace and inner relaxation via relationships, food, social status, money, job promotion, social respect, achievement, emotional security, material comfort, etc.

But we keep getting disappointment and innately know, despite having so much, that something deeply feels amiss.

Try self-observing; all our wants and desires never reach a  final satisfaction point throughout our lives.

Nobody ever genuinely feels I am finally satisfied and peaceful. Even on deathbeds, people have regrets and want to relive their lives if given a chance again.

How do I then live a joyful life?

If we can deeply realize and experience the inner frustration that nothing in the world will ever quench my inner thirst no matter what I achieve and acquire. Then the mind realizes that it has been looking at the wrong places.

That causes a healthy pause from running blindly behind material greed and pleasures of all kind and makes the mind turn within and reflects on its deepest want.

A reflective mind understands that being peaceful and living relaxed is innate. Otherwise, why does everybody hate being enslaved, restless and depressed from within?

We forget who we are and assume that we basically lack something inwards, hence, the urge to seek mental satisfaction via the world.

Such an understanding and wise mind becomes alright and healthy from within and starts relating more joyfully.

Now, all our relationships, thoughts, feelings, and quality of our daily living will have a touch of health and sanity. Hence overall, life becomes less and less mentally weary and more fulfilling.

Reading wisdom books also helps us get profound clarity on why we live dissatisfied lives and how to end all miseries of our minds that we experience daily.

We hope you will find our satisfaction quotes and sayings enriching.
