I feel ya, E.B. White

"I arise every morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." 

"Be obscure clearly."

"Genius is more often found in a cracked pot than a full one."

"Prejudice is a great time saver - you can form opinions without having to get the facts."

"It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer."

"One of the most time-consuming things is to have an enemy."

"The world is full of people who have never, since childhood, met an open doorway with an open mind." 

"Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested, and the frog dies of it."

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