  1. I loved Ernest Hemingway

    Here is one my favourite quotes, talks about the struggle of adversity when you are in a state of constant quick sand trying to gain traction. I read his book moveable feast

    “The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.”

    Sometimes, our hardest battles, strengthen us most. Remember, you’re not in this fight alone. And chances are, you’ll come out better for it in the end.

    ní bhíonn siad láidir gan a bheith gen ghá- Strong are never without being unscathed

  2. I’m a Hemingway fan. Though I think he was a better writer than a human being. Perhaps. I think he might agree or rather I’m going by his own words. He regretted a lot of things in his life–mostly ever leaving his first wife. “In Africa, what is true at daybreak is a lie by noon.” What a line. Something close to that. Read all his work. People denigrate him but he changed creative writing forever with one technique: what to leave OFF the page was as important as what went ON it. He and F. Scott made me want to become a writer. My high school English teacher assigned us to write a story copying Hemingway–she read mine to the class. So he has a special place in my heart!

    1. That is a quote! It does sound like he had a lot of regrets from some of his quotes. I can’t really say what made me want to write. I’ve just been doing it since I was a kid. I’m glad you enjoyed this and that he inspired you to become a writer! 💕
