Another Hemingway Quote

"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, the ecstasy, 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."

Hemingway - By-Line; "Old Newsman Writes: A Letter from Cuba"; (pg. 184)
