How to use "Necessity" in context?

Some might think that necessity is the mother of invention, and that is certainly the case for some inventions. The wheel, the printing press, the telephone - all were born from the need to solve a problem. Thomas Edison, arguably the most famous inventor in history, once said, "I have not failed, I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work."

The key to any successful invention is to challenge the status quo. When faced with a problem that needs to be solved, don't be afraid to try something new. If it doesn't work the first time, keep trying until you find a solution that works.
