What is the difference between happiness and satisfaction?

As I wonder every time about the philosophy of life, the question that make me think again and again that a man having satisfaction of particular thing is a happy? or can happy man considered as fully satisfied? Or happiness and satisfaction are the two sides of coins?

  • Nov 1 2013: Hi Shrinath, isn't it just a matter of the definition of the words?
    If you're happy, at some point (some degree) that happiness turns into satisfaction.
    If you're satisfied, definitely you're happy.
