Ernest Hemingway, 1939
I’ve always been fond of Hemingway, blame it on Gary Cooper and Ingrid Bergman. Hemingway the lover of Spain, the journalist-turned-novelist, that is… I dislike the bullfighting and other macho behaviour. His ability to frame a quotation is legendary, my favourite is:-
“All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know.”
If it were only that simple.
