Quote of the Day (Ernest Hemingway, on Fishing as a ‘Tragic Adventure’)

“In the swamp the banks were bare, the big cedars came together overhead, the sun did not come through, except in patches; in the fast deep water, in the half-light, the fishing would be tragic. In the swamp fishing was a tragic adventure. Nick did not want it. He didn't want to go up the stream any further today.” ― Ernest Hemingway, “Big Two-Hearted River,” from In Our Time  (1925)
