Famous quotes containing the word discontent:

    To fly from, need not be to hate, mankind:
    All are not fit with them to stir and toil,
    Nor is it discontent to keep the mind
    Deep in its fountain, lest it overboil.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    Unlimited economic growth has the marvelous quality of stilling discontent while maintaining privilege, a fact that has not gone unnoticed among liberal economists.
    Noam Chomsky (b. 1928)
