Everything in the world displeases me: but, above all, my displeasure in everything displeases me.— Friedrich Nietzsche
Eye-opening the winter of our discontent quotes that are about civilization and its discontent
The despair is there; now it's up to us to go in and rub raw the sores of discontent, galvanize them for radical social change.
To be completely woman you need a master, and in him a compass for your life.
You need a man you can look up to and respect. If you dethrone him it's no wonder that you are discontented, and discontented women are not loved for long.
Persuade thyself that imperfection and inconvenience are the natural lot of mortals, and there will be no room for discontent, neither for despair.
A grateful person is rich in contentment.
An ungrateful person suffers in the poverty of endless discontentment.
We have produced a world of contented bodies and discontented minds.
Gratitude is riches. Complaint is poverty.
God is looking for imperfect men and women who have learned to walk in moment-by-momen t dependence on the Holy Spirit. Christians who have come to terms with their inadequacies, fears, and failures. Believers who have become discontent with 'surviving' and have taken the time to investigate everything God has to offer in this life.
Were there none who were discontented with what they have, the world would never reach anything better.
The art of putting the right men in the right places is first in the science of government; but that of finding places for the discontented is the most difficult.
We would worry less if we praised more. Thanksgiving is the enemy of discontent and dissatisfaction.
The beet is the most intense of vegetables.
The radish, admittedly, is more feverish, but the fire of the radish is a cold fire, the fire of discontent, not of passion. Tomatoes are lusty enough, yet there runs through tomatoes an undercurrent of frivolity. Beets are deadly serious.
I wonder how many people I've looked at all my life and never seen.
One of Satan's greatest tools is pride: to cause a man or a woman to center so much attention on self that he or she becomes insensitive to his Creator or fellow beings. It is a cause for discontent, divorce, teenage rebellion, family indebtedness, and most other problems we face.
My mind has been the most discontented and restless one that ever was put into a body too small for it.... I never felt my mind repose upon anything with complete and undistracted enjoyment- upon no person but you. When you are in the room my thoughts never fly out of window: you always concentrate my whole senses
It is not the nature of man, as I see it, ever to be quite satisfied with what he has in life.... Contentment tends to breed laxity, but a healthy discontent keeps us alert to the changing needs of our time.
We abandon the most important journey of our lives when we abandon desire.
We leave our hearts by the side of the road and head off in the direction of fitting in, getting by, being productive, what have you. Whatever we might gain – money, position, the approval of others, or just absence of the discontent self – it’s not worth it.
But that is how men are! Ungrateful and never satisfied.
When you don't have them they hate you because you won't; and when you do have them they hate you again, for some other reason. Or for no reason at all, except that they are discontented children, and can't be satisfied whatever they get, let a woman do what she may.
Man is insatiable for power; he is infantile in his desires and, always discontented with what he has, loves only what he has not. People complain of the despotism of princes; they ought to complain of the despotism of man.
We dishonor God if we proclaim a Savior who satisfies and then go around discontent
Everything becomes so problematic because of basic faults: from a discontent with myself.
If the time comes when our culture tires of the endless homicidal feuds, despairs of the use of force and war as a means of bringing peace, becomes discontent with the half-lives that its members are living - only then will our culture seriously look for alternatives.
I have not tired of the wilderness; rather I enjoy its beauty and the vagrant life I lead, more keenly all the time. I prefer the saddle to the street car and the star sprinkled sky to a roof, the obscure and difficult trail, leading into the unknown, to any paved highway, and the deep peace of the wild to the discontent bred by cities.
Now is the winter of our discontent.
Restlessness is discontent and discontent is the first necessity of progress.
Show me a thoroughly satisfied man and I will show you a failure.
