“…there is enough in God to satisfy.  If our desires run out after other things, they are desires not to be satisfied, but to be mortified.  If we hunger after other contentments, they are like feverish desires, not to be satisfied,  but to be abated in the soul, for he that fills all things, hath enough to fill up our hearts.”  –Thomas Manton “Psalm 119, Vol 1” p. 564
