necessity

A Quote by Samuel Warren on children, difficulty, men, necessity, and strength

What is difficulty? Only a word indicating the degree of strength requisite for accomplishing particular objects; a mere notice of the necessity for exertion, a bugbear to children and fools; only a mere stimulus to men.

A Quote by Raymond Hitchcock on acceptance, blessings, charity, christianity, culture, extremism, hospitality, necessity, poverty, trust, and wealth

Wealth is not of necessity a curse, nor poverty a blessing. Wholesome and easy abundance is better than either extreme; better for our manhood that we have enough for daily comfort; enough for culture, for hospitality, for Christian charity. More than this may or may not be a blessing. Certainly it can be a blessing only by being accepted as a trust.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on difficulty, facts, necessity, and quotations

By necessity, by proclivity, and by delight, we all quote. In fact, it is as difficult to appropriate the thoughts of others as it is to invent.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on action, beginning, citizenship, dignity, joy, labor, learning, limitations, necessity, observation, popularity, sacrifice, society, virtue, and work

I hear therefore with joy whatever is beginning to be said of the dignity and necessity of labor to every citizen. There is virtue yet in the hoe and the spade, for learned as well as for unlearned hands. And labor is everywhere welcome; always we are invited to work; only be this limitation observed, that a man shall not for the sake of wider activity sacrifice any opinion to the popular judgments and modes of action. An Oration delivered before the Phi Beta Kappa Society, at Cambridge, August 31, 1837.

Classic art was the art of necessity: modern romantic art bears the stamp of caprice and chance.
