Quote of the Day: Invention

“Necessity is the mother of invention.”


4th Century BC Athenian Plato was not only a philosopher but was also an influential authority on politics, ethics, logic, and mathematics. This quote struck me on how society changes at times of adversity. Although we view most quotes on a macro level, sometimes quotes can be impactive on our personal circumstances. When we live in times of relative wealth, health, and peace we become comfortable in our aims, thoughts, and actions. Now in these post-pandemic days of high inflation, low wages, energy poverty, and social strife, we become more resourceful in our day-to-day lives. For me, I boil my eggs in a kettle save water and electricity … what is your necessity and invention?
