UTILITY
[ Also see Trifles Usefulness Uselessness ]

The use of a thing !s only a part of its significance. To know anything thoroughly, to have the full command of it in all its appliances, we must study it on its own account, independently of any special application.
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Never mind the use--do it!
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Thou shalt learn
  The wisdom early to discern
    True beauty in utility.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Use almost can change the stamp of nature.
      - William Shakespeare

Of all parts of wisdom, the practice is the best. Socrates was esteemed the wisest man of his time because he turned his acquired knowledge into morality, and aimed at goodness more than greatness.
      - John Tillotson

The superfluous, a very necessary thing.
  [Fr., Le superflu, chose tres necessaire.]
      - Voltaire (Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire),
        Le Mondain
