Hemingway

***************

Profanity is
like drilling rock and blasting
life out with charges

***************

I have learned a great
deal from listening to fools,
failures and jackals

***************

Grace under pressure
is hunting drunk when you’ve shot
one bird all damn day

***************

A typewriter is
a weapon; a novel is
a war to the end

***************

Innocence marks the
permanent ruin of an
intelligent man

***************

Love is not for the
sweet butterfly; love is for
the bloody buzzard

***************

Politics is like
bullfighting: revoltingly
solemn and funny

***************

Suicide is the
shortest answer to any
problem except death

***************

Happiness is the
tendency to feel moral
when you’re immoral
