satisfaction

A Quote by William Hazlitt on determination, judgment, perfection, satisfaction, and success

The surest hindrance of success is to have too high a standard of refinement in our own minds, or too high an opinion of the judgment of the public. He who is determined not to be satisfied with anything short of perfection will never do anything to please himself or others.

A Quote by William Hazlitt on appearance, confidence, extremism, satisfaction, wishes, and women

Gallantry to women - the sure road to their favor - is nothing but the appearance of extreme devotion to all their wants and wishes, a delight in their satisfaction, and a confidence in yourself as being able to contribute toward it.

A Quote by William Feather on friendship, life, and satisfaction

Once you have sold a customer, make sure he is satisfied with your goods. Stay with him until the goods are used up or worn out. Your product may be of such long life that you will never sell him again, but he will sell you and your product to his friends.

A Quote by William C. Menninger on absence, anxiety, creativity, experience, fear, freedom, giving, learning, maturity, profit, reality, satisfaction, and serenity

In positive terms, we can state that psychological maturity entails finding greater satisfaction in giving than in receiving; having a capacity to form satisfying and permanent loyalties; being primarily a creative, contributing person; having learned to profit from experience; having a freedom from fear (anxiety) with a resulting true serenity and not a pseudo absence of tension; and accepting and making the most of unchangeable reality when it confronts one.

A Quote by William A. Foster on accidents, achievement, choice, direction, effort, execution, experience, idealism, intelligence, intention, necessity, quality, satisfaction, sincerity, and usefulness

Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives, the cumulative experience of many masters of craftsmanship. Quality also marks the search for an ideal after necessity has been satisfied and mere usefulness achieved.

A Quote by W. E. B. Du Bois on boredom, heaven, hell, life, needs, satisfaction, work, and world

The return from your work must be the satisfaction which that work brings you and the world's need of that work. With this, life is heaven, or as near heaven as you can get. Without this - with work which you despise, which bores you, and which the world does not need - this life is hell.

W. E. B. Du Bois (1868 - 1963)

The most noteworthy thing about gardeners is that they are always optimistic, always enterprising, and never satisfied. They always look forward to doing something better than they have ever done before.

Logotherapy . . . considers man as a being whose main concern consists in fulfilling a meaning and in actualizing values, rather than in the mere gratification and satisfaction of drives and instincts.

A Quote by unknown on body, doubt, good, happiness, heart, mind, needs, opportunity, satisfaction, and time

Happiness is possible only when one is busy. The body must toil, the mind must be occupied, and the heart must be satisfied. Those who do good as opportunity offers are sowing seed all the time, and they need not doubt the harvest.
