I always learn from the timeless writing of E.B. White. I read Stuart Little at school as a child. Later on, Charlotte’s Web as a volunteer mom to a class of first graders. All my children loved The Trumpet of the Swan.
This photo of White with his dog Minnie shows his love for animals and, I like to think, most everyone else..
Not just a kid’s writer, White’s book The Elements of Style (with Strunk),sharpened my own writing. White spent his adult life as a staff writer for the New Yorker.
Today’s media bombards us with never-ending negative copy that reminds me of White’s quote:
“One of the most time-consuming things to have is an enemy.”
