5 Quotes by Ernest Hemingway

IS 5 Quotes by Ernest Hemingway

1. “There is no friend as loyal as a book.”

2. “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”

3. “The first draft of anything is shit.”

4. “All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, thecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.”

5. “As a writer, you should not judge, you should understand.”

“Write drunk; edit sober.” –Ernest Hemingway

Charles Yallowitz
