    What if we're looking for any abstract noun: peace, happiness, fulfillment?

Reflection and introspection, I suppose. Having a qualitative idea about what it might feel like to be happy or in love or in a general state of peace isn't so difficult. Fulfillment? If we don't know what it might take to satisfy us, then being fulfilled is nonsense and unreachable. Malcontents are people who don't know how to recognize what it is they have.
