Most people are chasing an ever-elusive imaginary goal of satisfaction, but it keeps changing as we move forward with our lives.

Some believe that a human can never be entirely satisfied because as humans, it is our tendency to keep moving forward achieving one milestone after the other. A person who is never satisfied is generally known as insatiable.

As it so happens, the state of being insatiable can be positive as well as negative, depending upon one's mindset and aim.

Scroll down to read some of the best never-satisfied quotes which will provide you with inspiration during such difficult circumstances.
