足矣 (Contented) Rubber Stamp

RM28.00

禍莫大乎不知足。知足之為足,此恆足矣 -《老子》
Of all disasters, none is greater than not knowing when you have enough.
If one understand that having enough is enough – that is constant contentment. - LaoZi

 

足矣 means sufficient, having enough or feeling contentment. It is a term used often in Classic Chinese texts, with 足 represent enough while 矣 stresses the subjective certainty, something similar to "indeed!".

Some scenarios where you could use 足矣:
有爱足矣 - Feeling contented with love 
有你足矣 - Having you is enough for me in my life
一个微笑足矣 - A smile would be sufficient
Having a cup of coffee is 足矣 (is enough)

 

You could use it for documenting something, some events or outcomes where you feel satisfied/contented/enough/sufficient or some grateful occasions. Besides for expressing your mood or feeling, you could use it for adorning your pages/outgoings.

This wooden rubber stamp features 2 Chinese characters of 足矣 (contented) in handwritten Chinese Calligraphy. This rubber stamp would be great for adorning your journal pages, adding personalised touch to outgoings or any projects. It would also make a unique gift for people who are looking for something different.

Each piece of rubber stamps is assembled by hand with care and attention to details. We hope this unique creation will add some sparks in your everyday life.
