Hemingway

Famous quotes containing the word hemingway:

    Writing, at its best, is a lonely life. Organizations for writers palliate the writer’s loneliness, but I doubt if they improve his writing. He grows in public stature as he sheds his loneliness and often his work deteriorates. For he does his work alone and if he is a good enough writer he must face eternity, or the lack of it, each day.
    —Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961)

    There are events which are so great that if a writer has participated in them his obligation is to write truly rather than assume the presumption of altering them with invention.
    —Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961)

    Prose is architecture, not interior decoration, and the Baroque is over.
    —Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961)
