A Quote by Felix Salten on anticipation, anxiety, curiosity, effort, giving, happiness, love, mind, motherhood, questions, satisfaction, silence, suspicion, time, and understanding

He loved to ask his mother questions. It was the pleasantest thing for him to ask a question and then to hear what answer his mother would give. Bambi was never surprised that question after question should come into his mind continually and without effort. He found it perfectly natural, and it delighted him very much. It was very delightful too, to wait expectantly till the answer came. If it turned out the way he wanted, he was satisfied. Sometimes, of course, he did not understand, but that was pleasant also because he was kept busy picturing what he had not understood, in his own way. Sometimes he felt very sure that his mother was not giving him a complete answer, was intentionally not telling him all she knew. And, at first, that was very pleasant, too. For then there would remain in him such a lively curiosity, such suspicion, mysteriously and joyously flashing through him, such anticipation, that he would become anxious and happy at the same time, and grow silent.

A Quote by F.A. Hayek on facts, freedom, individuality, justice, and satisfaction

We must face the fact that the preservation of individual freedom is incompatible with a full satisfaction of our views of distributive justice.

A Quote by Eugene Victor Debs on civilization, discontent, intelligence, life, progress, and satisfaction

If it had not been for the discontent of a few fellows who had not been satisfied with their conditions, you would still be living in caves. Intelligent discontent is the mainspring of civilization. Progress is born of agitation. It is agitation or stagnation.

A Quote by Edward Morgan "E. M." Forster on aim, happiness, life, needs, and satisfaction

Happiness in the ordinary sense is not what one needs in life, though one is right to aim at it. The true satisfaction is to come through, and see those whom one lives come through.

A Quote by Edgar A. Collard on achievement, art, contentment, happiness, humility, lies, life, and satisfaction

The art of contentment is the recognition that the most satisfying and the most dependably refreshing experiences of life lie not in great things but in little. The rarity of happiness among those who achieved much is evidence that achievement is not in itself the assurance of a happy life. The great, like the humble, may have to find their satisfaction in the same plain things.
