Alternate Endings of Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms
Iconic Literary Men
Steinbeck is one of my favorite authors. His works changed my life as a reader and a writer…
Well, this quote definitely sums me up.
At his funeral, it was noted how unexpectedly old Henry (“Grapes of Wrath”) Fonda looked without his hair piece, standing short up there and reading words at the eulogy. On the way out afterward, his widow clutched at celebrities’ arms in passing and begged them, please, not to forget him: winner of the Nobel Prize. Relic. Artifact of a time when… Oh, never mind. R.I.P.
Neither you nor I are poor. Just broke.
The ‘American Dream’ in the words of yet another great American writer.
Unfortunately, that economic perspective remains. Thanks.

"This most of all: ask yourself in the most silent hour of your night: must I write? Dig into yourself for a deep answer. And if this answer rings out in assent, if you meet this solemn question with a strong, simple “I must,” then build your life in accordance with this necessity; your whole life, even into its humblest and most indifferent hour, must become a sign and witness to this impulse." --Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
