 Sa·ti·ate v. t. [imp. & p. p. Satiated p. pr. & vb. n. Satiating.]

 3. To saturate. [Obs.]
 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.
