“All That I Ever Hope to Say Is that I Love the World.” What Do You Hope to Say?

"All that I hope to say in books, all that I ever hope to say, is that I love the world."

--E. B. White

He wrote this to a reader of his masterpiece of children's literature, Charlotte's Web.

If you were to fill in the blank, "All that I ever hope to say is that I _____," how would you answer?

Ah, Charlotte's Web. An extraordinary, beautiful book. If you haven't read it since you were a child, re-read it now. It's a book that immediately made it onto my list of my 81 Favorite Works of Children's and Young-Adult Literature.
