51 Needs Quotes That Help You See What Is Necessary

Needs

When you stop looking for what you want, you'll get what you need. Needs and wants vary greatly. Needs are necessities and things you must have to live normally and function properly. These are things like food, water, and a home.

Wants, on the other hand, are generally luxuries that make your life more comfortable. They are things like the lastest iPhone, car, make-up, and the like. You don't need them to survive, but having them means a lot and you would prefer to have them.

However, to be happy is to know the difference between what you need and what you want. There is usually a thin line between the two and you may be unable to see it. Sometimes we are so focused on what we want that we forget what we need.

Wants are usually popularized by trends and we go for them so as not to be left out. We want to have what everyone else has and to be in fashion too. Being unable to get these things may make us unhappy and depressed to some extent.

A happy person is content with what they have. Having good food, a roof over their head, and one good friend is usually enough. Having your needs catered for is more satisfactory than having your wants satisfied.

And sometimes, what you want may not always be what you need. You may be having sleepless nights over something that is not necessary in your life. It could even be something that doesn't deserve all the misery you are putting yourself through.

Just because you want that person, job, money, vacation, or marriage doesn't mean it's what you need or it's right for you. Here are needs quotes to help you put your desires into perspective and sort out what's important for you first.

Needs Quotes

They might not need me; but they might. I'll let my head be just in sight; a smile as small as mine might be precisely their necessity.

When you love yourself you will never need closure from any man. That doesn't mean you didn't love him, it simply means you love yourself enough to realize God has a better plan for you that doesn't involve one more conversation that will remind you of that person's lack of respect for you.

Our need to control eventually works against us because we start to repress what we truly feel, need and want. God is in control so trust in that more than yourself!

Progress. Just make progress. It's okay to have setbacks and the need for do-overs. It's okay to draw a line in the sand and start over again - and again. Just make sure you're moving the line forward. Move forward. Take baby steps... Then change will come. And it will be good.

Yuki Sohma: Aren't you going after him? Kagura Sohma: No, I'm not. I've made up my mind. Kyo already knows I accept him, no matter what and no matter what form he's in. I mean, there isn't another girl in the whole world who loves him as much as I do, which is why I know that I can't help him. Right now the only one who CAN help, the person he needs the most, is Tohru. Yuki Sohma: Kagura... Kagura Sohma: I'm a member of the zodiac, the same as him, so for me to go to him now, it wouldn't give him any comfort. He needs to be accepted by someone else, someone who doesn't share our curse, and so all I can do is leave things up to Tohru.

But Haru…he did want me. They told me they didn’t need me, but there is someone who wanted me. That made me happy. Nothing could have made me happier. I was happy. Thank you. I was glad. But this is enough. Enough, Haru. Next time Haru, you have to be happy. So I’ll release you from me, from Akito, from everything that ties you down. I want to set you free. You know, Haru, your true “happiness” is in a bigger world. I’ll search for it. I’ll find it. Because I’m okay, even if it ends with nothing left in my hands.

Love is a form of prejudice. You love what you need, you love what makes you feel good, you love what is convenient. How can you say you love one person when there are ten thousand people in the world that you would love more if you ever met them? But you'll never meet them. All right, so we do the best we can. Granted. But we must still realize that love is just the result of a chance encounter. Most people make too much of it. On these grounds a good fuck is not to be entirely scorned. But that's the result of a chance meeting too. You're damned right. Drink up. We'll have another.

When you pray, God listens, when you ask, God gives. But we should only pray for the things we truly need, however some people forget to thank God for what they have received, always remember God gives but he can also take away.

Privately now, I would like to comment to you on the Noble Bitch in Trace 32. Why this eltchl, this conservative from the halls of the ikons and holy rollers, the pluckers of rondeaux and smellers of lilies, why this spalpeen should set himself up as a special critic of literary know-how is more than I can dispense with with a quodlibet. I need a stronger antiseptic.

It was a lie. The truth is that this world doesn’t need anyone. It doesn’t need parents, teachers, the people we look up to, children, or adults. The world doesn’t need me, or Katsuya. The world doesn’t need any of us. The world doesn’t care who lives or dies. The sun rises just the same. The world doesn’t give a damn about anybody…and that’s so sad. In the end, we’re all alone. I’m sure that’s why we seek each other out. We want to need and be needed. We want to meet someone who needs us.

People say, Kenny Powers is a woman hater. That’s not true. I love women. Every f**king one of them, even the ugly as shit ones. But, don’t ask me to trust ’em. Not even nuns, because every pair of tits comes with a gaping hole of need that even Kenny Powers can’t fill.
