“To be discontented with the divine discontent, and to be ashamed with the noble shame, is the very germ of the first upgrowth of all virtue.”
“Discontent is the first step in the progress of a man or a nation”
“Content makes poor men rich; discontent makes rich men poor.”
“The essence of man is, discontent, divine discontent; a sort of love without a beloved, the ache we feel in a member we no longer have.”
Jose Ortega y Gasset

Henri Frederic Amiel
