Who Was E. B. White? by Gail Herman, Who HQ: 9780593386729 | Books

We should all do what, in the long run, gives us joy, even if it is only picking grapes or sorting laundry.”   —   E.B. White

(Ideally?  Sure.  But not everyone has that luxury.  Too many of us just pursue a career that pleases our parents.  Or, we kind of fall into a “job” that pays the bills, and our families rely on us to bring home a paycheck.  But definitely our leisure time is our own, and we have to take enjoyment as we see fit.  Carol doesn’t understand it, but I actually like mowing the lawn!  I enjoy the sense of accomplishment, and the physicality of the work kind of grounds me.  It’s the same with shoveling snow . . . within reason.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(I love a good, stinky pun!  Humus, not to be confused with hummus, is the main part of the big organic cycle of life.  Plant and animal matter – yes, including fecal matter – break down to provide the soil with the necessary nutrients for plants to grow.  Decay might sound depressing to some, but it is truly deserving of our delight.  “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da”, folks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world.  This makes it hard to plan the day.”   —   E.B. White

(I vote for enjoying the world!  But, do it in a way in which you don’t destroy the world.  NOT destroying the world – our beloved planet Earth, that is – is probably the only true way you can improve the world, anyway.  Be well, do good . . . and don’t be a pig, friends!)   —   YUR

I see nothing in space as promising as the view from a ferris wheel.”   — E.B. White

(That’s only because you never had the opportunity to see photos taken from the Hubble telescope, E.B.!  This world of ours IS wondrous, but there are other things in the universe that would blow your mind.)   — YUR

Genius is more often found in a cracked pot than in a whole one.”   — E.B. White

(I think that with some of those people where “they broke the mold after you” it’s very likely that the mold was already cracked to begin with!)   — YUR
