Quoting Ernest Hemingway

So I was hit hard by a quote of Ernest Hemingway shown on an Intervention commercial.


"The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry."

Ernest HemingwayA Farewell to Arms, 1929
US author & journalist (1899 - 1961)



What I should do is read his books. Everyone knows Ernest Hemingway but after that quote from his book, I really want to read more. Here's a few more quotes.
