Check Icon Analysis

The term ‘insatiable’ is typically used in relation to a desire or need that is, figuratively, too great to be satisfied. If, for example, you were to say that somebody has an insatiable appetite, you do not mean that they could eat continuously and never get full, you are instead indicating that they eat more than what would be considered normal.
