GMTA Ernest Hemingway, The Garden of Eden

Great Minds Think Alike

“Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.”

“When you start to live outside yourself, it’s all dangerous.”

“Everybody has strange things that mean things to them. You couldn’t help it.”

“Remember everything is right until it’s wrong. You’ll know when it’s wrong.”

“You’ll ache. And you’re going to love it. It will crush you. And you’re still going to love all of it. Doesn’t it sound lovely beyond belief?”

“There is nothing you can do except try to write it the way that it was. So you must write each day better than you possibly can and use the sorrow that you have now to make you know how the early sorrow came. And you must always remember the things you believed because if you know them they will be there in the writing and you won’t betray them. The writing is the only progress you make.”

“Never, never tell them. Try and remember that. Never tell anyone anything ever. Never tell anyone anything again.”

“In that way they really were friends, understanding in their basic disagreement, trusting in their complete distrust and enjoying one another’s company.”
