90 Contentment Quotes

Contentment quotes demonstrate that contentment in life is not about all the things one can buy or the outward signs of accomplishments. Instead, true fulfillment in life stems from the dashing of worry, development of tolerance, understanding that every life is filled with both contentment and challenges and that inner joy is the hallmark of happiness.

It is our hope that these quotations and musings by all of the authors cited will spark anew, in some, a fresh and complete transition from despair to delight, and the on-going encouragement for others.
