 QUOTE
"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, The Art of Eating
