Our necessities are few but our wants are endless.

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.
It is no use saying, ‘We are doing our best.’ You have got to succeed in doing what is necessary.
Necessity hath no law.
Necessity makes an honest man a knave.
Everything existing in the universe is the fruit of chance and necessity.
The beautiful rests on the foundations of the necessary.
Make yourself necessary to somebody.
By necessity, by proclivity, and by delight, we all quote.
