Charlotte’s Web

“’… with men it’s rush, rush, rush, every minute. I’m glad I’m a sedentary spider.’
‘What does sedentary mean?’ asked Wilbur.
‘Means I sit still a good part of the time and don’t go wandering all over creation. I know a good thing when I see it, and my web is a good thing. I stay put and wait for what comes. Gives me a chance to think.’”
