Hemingway *

"Things may not be immediately discernible in what a man writes, 
and in this sometimes he is fortunate; 
but eventually they are quite clear 
and by these and the degree of alchemy that he possesses 
he will endure or be forgotten.

Writing, at its best, is a lonely life.

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.


[A] new beginning where he tries again for something that is beyond attainment
He should always try for something that has never been done 
or that others have tried and failed. 
Then sometimes, with great luck, he will succeed.

I have spoken too long for a writer. 
A writer should write what he has to say and not speak it."
