From the Commonplace Book: E.B. White on winding the clock

This quote is from a touching letter E.B. White wrote to a reader about confronting what seems like a bleak future for the world and the human race. Since it’s been a bit rough lately, I thought I’d link to it today.

White, for me, is like Daniel Webster in The Devil and Daniel Webster. An American wizard whose spells are sentences which not only seem capable of better ordering the mind that hears them, but the world as well.

Hang in there, everybody.
