I was awakened this morning, randomly, by one of the “Golden Oldies” on my iphone. There he was, Elvis Presley, in all his hip-swaggering glory, imparting great philosophical wisdom with just nine words—“I Want You, I Need You, I Love You.” I mean, Kierkegaard couldn’t have said it better. First you must want…from that want comes need…then out of the need comes love. Conversely, you cannot love that which you don’t need, and you certainly don’t need that which you don’t want. So what will I learn tomorrow, when I am awakened by Lil Wayne or Lady Gaga?
