    Judy Garland said that about “Love”? She was married at least 4 times, but only once to another imperfect man who adored her more than all the rest combined: Sid Luft..

      You see she “couldn’t live without love” and eventually she might have gotten it right, perhaps by taking Katherine Hepburn’s advice
