“The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed.”

Ernest Hemingway

      1. I recall writing a story once for a University assignment which involved and afterlife conversation between the protagonist and Hemingway as they played chess with both advocating the wisdom of blowing their own heads off. That was a fairly cheerful piece too.

          1. A story written long ago before computers and hard disks and clouds and whatnot. Written with a typewriter on a piece of paper and now lost forever. I recall only the last few words which were, “your move, Ernest.”
            It was, no doubt, not nearly as good as I choose to remember it having been.
