'You have been my friend. That in itself is a tremendous thing. I wove my webs for you because I liked you. After all, what's a life, anyway? We're born, we live a little while, we die. A spider's life can't help being something of a mess, with all this trapping and eating flies. By helping you perhaps I was trying to lift up my life a trifle. Heaven knows anyone's life can stand a little of that.' -from Charlotte's Web, EB White (I'll be there!)-JSM
