Satiating
Satiate Sa"ti*ate, v. t. [imp. & p. p. {Satiated}; p. pr. & vb. n. {Satiating}.] 1. To satisfy the appetite or desire of; to feed to the full; to furnish enjoyment to, to the extent of desire; to sate; as, to satiate appetite or sense. [1913 Webster]

2. To full beyond natural desire; to gratify to repletion or loathing; to surfeit; to glut. [1913 Webster]

3. To saturate. [Obs.] --Sir I. Newton. [1913 Webster]

Syn: To satisfy; sate; suffice; cloy; gorge; overfill; surfeit; glut.

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]

Content with science in the vale of peace. --Pope. [1913 Webster]
