E.B. White :
I arise in the morning torn between a desire to save the world and savor it. This makes it hard to plan the day.
While philosophizing, there's nothing like my Mom's Bran muffins for a snack to keep the brain nourished. I love them with a piece of sharp cheese or topped with nut butter.
