"It was the best place to be, thought Wilbur, this warm delicious cellar, with the garrulous geese, the changing seasons, the heat of the sun, the passage of swallows, the nearness of rats, the sameness of sheep, the love of spiders, the smell of manure, and the glory of everything."

Of course I read it (and watched the movie several times) as a child, and I liked it back then, but reading it as an adult was a wonderful experience. Charlotte's lack of self-importance (contrasted with Zuckerman's inflated self-importance) is inspiring. Wilbur's openness to feeling--all feeling--is beautiful. Fern is like all of us, in that she loses an important connection as she grows up. Putting aside self-importance and learning to feel all feelings again is a start towards reconnection.
