Life according to Ernest Hemingway was a losing battle. So while it would always end in defeat, Hemingway believed that the only way to live a worthwhile life was through conviction and passion. When he was 19, he wrote in a letter to his family, “And how much better to die in all the happy period of undisillusioned youth, to go out in a blaze of light, than to have your body worn out and old and illusions shattered.”
So, whether it was fishing for marlin off the coast of Cuba, hunting lions in Kenya, or attempting to give literature and fiction a new direction, there is literally no stone that Hemingway tried to leave unturned in his life. Before his death, he created a canon of fine, fictional work that included The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell to Arms, To Have and Have Not, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and The Old Man and the Sea.
Hemingway’s insight into the craft of writing is unparalleled and the below quotes are a proof of the same.
