Bad Mood Quotes ~

I read a Hemingway quote the other day, and it reminded me that he is the master of the great quote. His writing was good in my opinion, and I enjoyed his books at the time I read them. I never found him to be a particularly dazzling writer, nor particularly profound. But his one line quotes are a dark and superb reflection of the human spirit.

Here are some....

"Develop a built-in bullshit detector."

"The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places."

"The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially."

"I love sleep. My life has the tendency to fall apart when I'm awake, you know?"

"What is moral is what you feel good after, and what is immoral is what you feel bad after."

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