E. B. White’s letter on humanity

As long as there is one upright man, as long as there is one compassionate woman, the contagion may spread and the scene is not desolate. Hope is the thing that is left to us, in a bad time. I shall get up Sunday morning and wind the clock, as a contribution to order and steadfastness.

    Funny! That’s the speech I give twice a year as I go to bed on the Saturday before the beginning and end of Daylight Savings Time.
