Hemingway Says:

"I know now that there is no one thing that is true - it is all true."

"What is moral is what you feel good after, and what is immoral is what you feel bad after."

"To be a successful father... there's one absolute rule: when you have a kid, don't look at it for the first two years."

"Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know."

"Every man's life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another."

"As you get older it is harder to have heroes, but it is sort of necessary."

"The world is a fine place and worth the fighting for and I hate very much to leave it."

"Man is not made for defeat. A man can be destroyed but not defeated."

"I love sleep. My life has the tendency to fall apart when I'm awake, you know?"
