Famous quotes containing the word content:

    You can hardly convince a man of an error in a life-time, but must content yourself with the reflection that the progress of science is slow. If he is not convinced, his grandchildren may be. The geologists tell us that it took one hundred years to prove that fossils are organic, and one hundred and fifty more to prove that they are not to be referred to the Noachian deluge.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Women are angels, wooing;
    Things won are done, joy’s soul lies in the doing.
    That she beloved knows naught that knows not this:
    Men prize the thing ungained more than it is.
    That she was never yet that ever knew
    Love got so sweet as when desire did sue.
    Therefore this maxim out of love I teach:
    Achievement is command; ungained, beseech.
    Then though my heart’s content firm love doth bear,
    Nothing of that shall from mine eyes appear.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    To impose celibacy on such a large body as the clergy of the Catholic Church is not to forbid it to have wives but to order it to be content with the wives of others.
    Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712–1778)
