To Savor or To Save?

E.B. White, in an interview with The New York Times in 1969, said:

If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve (or save) the world and a desire to enjoy (or savor) the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

Those are the words of a kindred spirit. There’s something about beauty that is at once inspiring and heartbreaking. When I see something beautiful, I feel an immediate impulse to rejoice, and a simultaneous impulse to preserve it. To strengthen the things that remain.
