I think frugality drives innovation, just like other constraints do. One of the only ways to get out of a tight box is to invent your way out
Frugality is founded on the principal that all riches have limits.
Without frugality none can be rich, and with it very few would be poor.
“There is no dignity quite so impressive, and no independence quite so important, as living within your means.”
“The way to wealth is as plain as the way to market. It depends chiefly on two words, industry and frugality: that is, waste neither time nor money, but make the best use of both. Without industry and frugality nothing will do, and with them everything.”
― Benjamin Franklin —
“He who will not economize will have to agonize”
