Syn: To satisfy; sate; suffice; cloy; gorge; overfill;
Usage: Satiate, Satisfy, Content. These words differ
principally in degree. To content is to make
contented, even though every desire or appetite is not
fully gratified. To satisfy is to appease fully the
longings of desire. To satiate is to fill so
completely that it is not possible to receive or enjoy
more; hence, to overfill; to cause disgust in.
Content with science in the vale of peace.
His whole felicity is endless strife;
No peace, no satisfaction, crowns his life.
He may be satiated, but not satisfied. --Norris.
