Usually his own arrogance, like in Infinity Gauntlet. Or he realises the errors of his ways and gives up like in The End.
Thanos has had moments of altruism, surprisingly. But only when it suits his needs.
To put the Galactus thing in context though, after Thanos put the Big G on his ass, he came back and fried Thanos to within an inch of his life. Noting that he had to put some effort in whilst doing it.
But for a being like Galactus, who can let off blasts that destroy multiple solar systems, it's impressive that Thanos even survived really.
