"Do you think all any of us really want,
deep down, is to be loved?"
famed author and storyteller Garrison Keillor responded:
"No, we want to be rich; to be admired;
to eat like a horse and be skinny as a snake;
to have small children
ask for our autographs; to be on terrific medications
that make us calm and witty and sexy; to
sing Irving Berlin and Gershwin and Porter at the Oak Room
and be described in the Times as 'luminous'.
But in the absence of all that,
it's enough to be loved."
