I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority.
One of my ALL TIME Favorite books as a child was Charlotte's Web,
by EB White.
I remember getting this book as a child and falling in love with it.
It may have been the book that instilled a LOVE of reading in my soul.
