Desperate Times Call for Desperate Measures. When you say 'Desperate Times Call for Desperate Measures' you mean that actions that might seem extreme under normal circumstances are appropriate during adversity. Example of use: “I really don't want to break up with Tim, but desperate times call for desperate measures.”
