We are all familiar with the proverb, "Necessity is the Mother of
Invention." Well, years ago, I realized that many proverbs could be
turned around and still make sense, albeit with a different meaning..
My take on that proverb has become, "Invention is the Mother of
Necessity". People can be happy (satisfied) with their lot, until
someone comes along with a "new and improved " model. Then, they
wonder how they could have been "satisfied" with the model with which
they were satisfied.
Don't get me wrong, I have more junk than most people, but at least
realize that I don't need any of it.
