Letter "C" » contented
«It is a wise man that does know the contented man is never poor, whilst the discontented man is never rich...»
«It is right to be contented with what we have, never with what we are»
«It is great wealth to a soul to live frugally with a contented mind.»
«He who is contented is rich»
«He who is not contented with what he has, would not be contented with what he would like to have»

«Being ''contented'' ought to mean in English, as it does in French, being pleased. Being content with an attic ought not to mean being unable to move from it and resigned to living in it; it ought to mean appreciating all there is in such a position.»
«Democracy means despair of finding any heroes to govern you, and contented putting up with the want of them»
«It is easy to talk of sitting at home contented, when others are seeing or making shows. But not to have been where it is supposed, and seldom supposed falsely, that all would go if they could; to be able to say nothing when everyone is talking; to have no opinion when everyone is judging; to hear exclamations of rapture without power to depress; to listen to falsehoods without right to contradict, is, after all, a state of temporary inferiority, in which the mind is rather hardened by stubbornness, than supported by fortitude. If the world be worth winning let us enjoy it, if it is to be despised let us despise it by conviction. But the world is not to be despised but as it is compared with something better.»
