Some Advice and a Quote

Great advice from E. B. White to a student. From a book by Michael Sims, The Story of Charolotte's Web: E.B. White's Eccentric Life in Nature and the Birth of An American Classic. 2011. P4.

"Remember that writing is translation and the opus to be translated is yourself."

A great line from a poem by E.B. White, writer of Charlotte's Web in the same book, P168.

"In the poem he admitted that he saw himself as the spider, groping his way on a tenuous thread of his own creation, hoping eventually that ― by trusting the vary act of making the web ― he would wind his way home to where he started."
