Necessity

Necessity, who is the mother of invention.

~ Plato

Necessity

Necessity is the mother of invention" is a silly proverb. "Necessity is the mother of futile dodges" is much nearer the truth.

~ Alfred North Whitehead 1861-1947

Necessity

Necessity never made a good bargain.

~ Benjamin Franklin

Necessity

Our necessities never equal our wants.

~ Benjamin Franklin

Necessity

Necessity is not an established fact, but an interpretation.

~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Necessity

Civilization is a limitless multiplication of unnecessary necessities.

~ Mark Twain

Necessity

Only that thing is free which exists by the necessities of its own nature, and is determined in its actions by itself alone.

~ Baruch Spinoza

Necessity

Necessity is blind until it becomes conscious. Freedom is the consciousness of necessity.

~ Karl Marx

Necessity

Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.

~ William Pitt the younger, 1759-1806

Necessity

The historical process has created the preconditions, both material and intellectual, for the realisation of Reason (Hegel) in the organisation (Marx), for the convergence of freedom and necessity. However, freedom which converges with (or is even absorbed by) necessity is not the final form of freedom. At this ultimate point, Hegel and Marx again agree. The realm of true freedom is beyond the realm of necessity. Freedom as well as necessity is redefined. For Hegel, ultimate freedom resides in the realm of the Absolute Spirit. For Marx, the realm of necessity is to be mastered by a society whose reproduction has been subjected to the control of the individuals, and freedom is the free play of individual faculties outside the realm of necessary labour. Freedom is 'confined' to free time - but free time is, quantitatively and qualitatively, the very content of life.

~ Herbert Marcuse, Soviet Marxism, Pelican Books (1971), London, 1958: 183

Necessity

Necessity reconciles and brings men together; and this accidental connection afterwards forms itself into laws.

~ Michel de Montaigne

Necessity

Necessity hath no law. Feigned necessities, imaginary necessities, are the greatest cozenage men can put upon the Providence of God, and make pretences to break known rules by.

~ Oliver Cromwell

Necessity

Political necessities sometime turn out to be political mistakes.

~ George Bernard Shaw

Necessity

The necessary has never been man's top priority. The passionate pursuit of the nonessential and the extravagant is one of the chief traits of human uniqueness. Unlike other forms of life, man's greatest exertions are made in the pursuit not of necessities but of superfluities.

~ Eric Hoffer 1902-1983

Necessity

In the usual progress of things, the necessities of a nation in every stage of its existence will be found at least equal to its resources.

~ Alexander Hamilton

Necessity

The degree of a nation's civilization is marked by its disregard for the necessities of existence.

~ William Somerset Maugham

Necessity

Nothing has more strength than dire necessity.

~ Euripides

Necessity

Teach thy necessity to reason thus; There is no virtue like necessity.

~ William Shakespeare

Necessity

Great necessity elevates man, petty necessity casts him down.

~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Necessity

Necessity teaches all things.

~ German Proverb

Necessity

The superfluous, a very necessary thing.

~ Voltaire

Necessity

To think at its best is to find oneself carried down the current of necessity.

~ Brand Blanshard

Necessity

Man cannot be free if he does not know that he is subject to necessity, because his freedom is always won in his never wholly successful attempts to liberate himself from necessity.

~ Hannah Arendt

Necessity

The only sure bulwark of continuing liberty is a government strong enough to protect the interests of the people, and a people strong enough and well enough informed to maintain its sovereign control over the government.

~ Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Necessity

True individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence.

~ Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Everywhere the human soul stands between a hemisphere of light and another of darkness; on the confines of the two everlasting empires, necessity and free will.
