[ adjective ] providing personal satisfaction
"a rewarding career as a paramedic"
Used in print(Charles Wharton Stork, "Verner von Heidenstam"...)
Of these there are surely few that would be more rewarding discoveries than Verner_von_Heidenstam , the Swedish poet and novelist who received the award in 1916 and whose centennial was celebrated two years ago .(Jay Williams, The Forger....)
I do n't know that it was always as rewarding as I had expected it to be .
