One should be satisfied; stop, there should be no more. For example, No more speeches—enough is enough, or as Robert Southey put it (The Doctor, 1834): “As for money, enough is enough; no man can enjoy more.” This expression already appeared in John Heywood's proverb collection of 1546 and is often used as an interjection (first example).
