Top 5782 Need Quotes

Last Updated on

The meaning of a need is like a hole in the ground that you only see once you fall in it. In other words, needs are not seen until they are not satisfied. They are things like food for survival, clothing to protect you from outside elements, and shelter to protect you from the elements. Once you are in a hole, all you see are the things you need to get you out.  In this way, needs build on top of needs.  For example, you need food to survive, but food is useless without a means to cook it.

A lot of people think that they need a lot more in life, than they actually need. People think that they need to have a new car, or a new house. Some people will even say that they need a new job. But what do we really need in life? The dictionary defines need as “Lack of something necessary for survival or well-being; a deficiency.” So, what is it that we really need?
