Enough. (Anglo-Saxon, genoh or genog.)

Enough! Stop now, you have said all that is needful.

Enough is as good as a feast.

Latin: “Illud satius est, quod satis est.”

French: “On est assez riche, quand on a le nécessaire.”

At one time Enow was used for numbers reckoned by tale, as: There are chairs enow, nails enow, men enow, etc.; but now enough does duty for both words, and enow is archaic.
