For we both alike know that into the discussion of human affairs the question of justice enters only where the pressure of necessity is equal, and that the powerful exact what they can, and the weak grant what they must.
Necessity is the mother of taking chances.
Necessity knows no law.
The superfluous is the most necessary.
Great necessity elevates man, petty necessity casts him down.
Habit, if not resisted, soon becomes necessity.
Necessity has no law.
Our necessities are few but our wants are endless.
Without death and decay, how could life go on?
I don’t think necessity is the mother of invention. Invention, in my opinion, arises directly from idleness, possibly also from laziness. To save oneself trouble.
