A mish mash of Ernest Hemingway

“Go all the way with it. Do not back off. For once, go all the goddamn way with what matters.”

 “The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much and forgetting that you are special too.”- Ernest Hemingway, Men Without Women

“To hell with them. Nothing hurts if you don’t let it.”

“We are all broken, that’s how the light gets in.”

“You are so brave and quiet I forget you are suffering.” Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms

“I’m not brave any more darling. I’m all broken. They’ve broken me.” Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms

“You may talk. And I may listen. And miracles might happen.” Ernest Hemingway, The Complete Short Stories

“Fall for them but don’t let them ruin you…”- Ernest Hemingway, “The Three Day Blow”

“Let’s not talk about how I am. It’s a subject I know too much about to want to think about anymore.”- Ernest Hemingway, A Way You’ll Never Be
 “I was so sentimental about you I’d break any one’s heart for you. My, I was a damned fool. I broke my own heart, too. It’s broken and gone. Everything I believe in and everything I cared about I left for you because you were so wonderful and you loved me so much that love was all that mattered. Love was the greatest thing, wasn’t it?”  Ernest Hemingway, To Have And Have Not

“We’re stronger in the places that we’ve been broken.”

“It’s just some feel and others don’t.” - Ernest Hemingway, The Garden Of Eden

“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?” Ernest Hemingway, The Garden of Eden

“If something in life hurts you in life, use it in your writing.” 

“I love you and I always will and I am sorry. What a useless word.”- Ernest Hemingway, The Garden Of Eden   

“I’m here. I wouldn’t go away. I’m always here.”- Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms  

“When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen.”

“You’re beautiful. You walk wonderfully and if I were here and saw you now for the first time I’d be in love with you. If I saw you for the first time everything would turn over inside of me and I’d ache right through my chest.”- Ernest Hemingway, The Complete Short Stories
