Quote of the Day (Ernest Hemingway, On How ‘All Good Books Are Alike’)

“All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you; the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was.”— Nobel Prize-winning novelist and short-story writer Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961), “Old Newsman Writes,” Esquire, December 1934

(The picture accompanying the post shows Hemingway with friend Carlos Guitierrez aboard the novelist's boat, the Pilar, in 1934.)
