"All my life I've looked at words as though I were seeing them for the first time." - Ernest Hemingway

"All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was." - Ernest Hemingway

"I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen." - Ernest Hemingway

"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." - Ernest Hemingway

"The man who has begun to live more seriously within begins to live more simply without." - Ernest Hemingway
