Hemingway on Intrusion:
Somebody just back of you while you are fishing is as bad as someone looking over your shoulder while you write a letter to your girl.
Hemingway on Sobriety:
Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.
Hemingway on Stories:
All good books have one thing in common - they are truer than if they had really happened.
Hemingway on Life and Death:
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.
Hemingway on People:
The only thing that could spoil a day was people. People were always the limiters of happiness except for the very few that were as good as spring itself.
Hemingway on Action:
The shortest answer is doing the thing.
Hemingway on Happiness:
Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.
Hemingway on Greatness:
Let him think I am more man than I am and I will be so.
Hemingway on Humor:
A man's got to take a lot of punishment to write a really funny book.
