Three Basic Needs

"It seems to me that our three basic needs, for food and security and love,
are so mixed and mingled and entwined that we cannot straightly think
of one without the others. So it happens that when I write of hunger, I
am really writing about love and the hunger for it, and warmth and the
love of it and the hunger for it… and then the warmth and richness
and fine reality of hunger satisfied… and it is all one."

~ M.F.K. Fisher, from The Art of Eating
