    “If people bring so much courage to this world the world has to kill them to break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good, and the very gentle, and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too, but there will be no special hurry.”-- Ernest Hemingway

    What a wonderful quote. I particularly enjoy the flippant last sentence. Even though Hemingway killed himself, there's a lot of hope to be found in his life.
