If you are lucky enough to have read Charlotte’s Web in school, you should be happy that you’ve read a total classic! It’s summertime, which means it’s time to catch up on the recreational reading your school work may have prevented you from doing. So pick up Charlotte’s Web, and enjoy the wonderful tale.
“It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer.”
“After all, what’s a life, anyway? We’re born, we live a little while, we die.”
“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."
“Wilbur never forgot Charlotte. Although he loved her children and grandchildren dearly, none of the new spiders ever quite took her place in his heart. She was in a class by herself. It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer. Charlotte was both.”
“Trust me, Wilbur. People are very gullible. They’ll believe anything they see in print.”
“Never hurry and never worry!”
“It is quite possible that an animal has spoken to me and that I didn’t catch the remark because I wasn’t paying attention.”
“Children almost always hang onto things tighter than their parents think they will.”
“I don’t understand it, and I don’t like what I don’t understand.”
“Meetings bore me.”
