Who are you?
What do you want?
Why are you?

When you get past the surface answers, aren't we dealing with
different faces of the same question? For example,  a writer, a story
teller is what JMS *is* and not what JMS does.  Therefore, 
1. Who is JMS? -- a story teller
2. What does JMS want? -- to tell storys
3. Why is JMS? -- to tell storys that ennoble man.

   The preceeding opinions do not necessarily represent those
   of anybody in their right mind.

That only works if you define yourself by what you do...not what you are.

But as Lorien says, there's never a good answer to it.
