“Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.”

“The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them.”

“When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen.”

“Courage is grace under pressure.”

“The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too.”

“My aim is to put down on paper what I see and what I feel in the best and simplest way.”

Ernest Miller Hemingway (July 21, 1899 – July 2, 1961) was an American author and journalist.
His economical and understated style had a strong influence on 20th-century fiction, while his life of adventure and his public image influenced later generations.

Hemingway produced most of his work between the mid-1920s and the mid-1950s, and won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954.
He published seven novels, six short story collections, and two non-fiction works.
Additional works, including three novels, four short story collections, and three non-fiction works, were published posthumously.
Many of his works are considered classics of American literature.

On the vibrant Left Bank of Paris, in the Latin Quarter and Montparnasse, Ernest Hemingway and wife Hadley, bespectacled James Joyce struggling to publish Ulysses, and F. Scott Fitzgerald with his flamboyant wife Zelda, both giddy from the publication of The Great Gatsby, had settled in, along with photographer Man Ray, always ready to capture the moment. Pablo Picasso and writers Ezra Pound, Djuana Barnes, Nancy Cunard, Sherwood Anderson, and eccentric John Dos Passos, along with a memorable list of other authors and artists, were also part of the heady Paris scene, and friends of Hemingway.
