Famous quotes containing the words necessity and/or sufficiency:

    Perhaps love is a compelling necessity imposed on man by God that has something to do with suffering
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)

    Our age is very cheap and intelligible. Unroof any house, and you shall find it. The well-being consists in having a sufficiency of coffee and toast, with a daily newspaper; a well glazed parlor, with marbles, mirrors and centre-table; and the excitement of a few parties and a few rides in a year.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
