When one must, one can.

Charlotte Witton

August 8th - Necessity knows no law

Necessity is the mother of invention.

Jonathan Swift

It seems if we really want to do something, we will think of a way to do it.  New ways to do things are found or created when there is a strong or special need.

They say that when the chips are down, we become innovative, creative and solution based thinkers. Just because we’ve never done things like that before doesn’t mean we won’t try,  if we are put in the right position.  

If there is a will, there is a way.  When a need arises someone will invent a solution.  Just in my life time alone, I’ve seen many new inventions that were created out of need.  And I have no doubt that the times we are living in will bring many more our way. History is replete with examples of pioneers rising to such a challenge.  The primary driving force for new inventions is need.

If we have the desire and determination a way will be found.

Necessity is the mother of taking chances.

Mark Twain

I love C.S.Lweis and I believed he lived out what he said! Married Joy in his older age!

Only this morning I received an e-mail from a friend who's experiencing some rotten home-owner challenges. Until their central A/C can be replaced, they're trying to make-do with a window unit -- but it's having to work like the dickens in Florida's extreme temps. So S. discovered two oversize cardboard boxes in the garage and cut them to fit the big SW-facing windows. I couldn't resist saying, "Way to think outside the box!" (*Pun intended*)
Where there's a will there's a way!

Creativity is best expressed I believe when there are major problems that must be solved. That is when the will to solve them or fix them comes into play.

I think of that saying whenever I see people playing "corn hole" It's like bean bag horse shoes. Horse shoes are heavy and noisy, yard darts were just plain tossing bean bags into a hole is lots safer and less of a work out. LOL. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

You said if we really wanted to do something, we would do it. ...
That is a fact. and I hope you are right, 'It's never too late for a new goal or dream because I am having them. LOL

That is so true---if we want to do something badly enough- we will figure out a way. We are planning a trip (9 hours) next month to visit my daughter that has just moved...sigh...we will do it one way or the other. xo Diana
