The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in 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. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry. Ernest Hemingway

I've read so many Hemingway biography's and so many of his novels, and short stories ... and just things about his life, as well as his death (I have the book, "Final Drafts") ... so I can actually find the irony in this statement. sigh!
