There’s a great soliloquy from the local doctor (played by Beau Bridges) about a spider’s ability to spin its web. In essence, he says a spider web is itself a miracle — regardless of whether the spider spells anything in the Web. Interesting point about the “miracles” we all take for granted every day.
Reminds me of quote from Einstein:
There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is.
Here are some other quotes from E.B. White’s book, including the one from Dr. Dorian.
