Ernest Hemingway Quote
I was trying to write then and I found the greatest difficulty, aside from knowing truly what you really
felt, rather than what you were supposed to feel, had been taught to feel, was to put down what really
happened in action; what the actual things were which produced the emotion that you experienced… the
real thing, the sequence of motion and fact which made the emotion and which would be as valid in a year
or in ten years or, with luck and if you stated it purely enough, always.
