     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.
            [1913 Webster]

            [1913 Webster]

                  No peace, no satisfaction, crowns his life.
            [1913 Webster]
                  He may be satiated, but not satisfied. --Norris.
            [1913 Webster]
