Quotes

Torn

7/17/2017

“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 the world and a desire to

enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.”

– E.B. White

  1. I completely understand this. It is a delicate balance to be in this world and not of it.

  3. I struggle with a similar dichotomy myself. Maybe we can improve the world by enjoying it; maybe we can enjoy the world by improving it. Thanks for sharing this quote.
