Franklinly Speaking, You are my everything . . .

Ben in Love?
Yes, at times . . .

Benjamin Franklin offers an unusual gradient of values:
"Poverty wants some things, Luxury many things, Avarice all things."
Franklin may be using "wants" in the sense of "lacks."

Let me add a detail to Franklin's words:
"Love wants but one thing . . . because it is everything."
I've heard-tell that Franklin would agree . . .
