Part of the reason we love Ernest Hemingway is that he captured life’s complexities in such simple words. His characters are constantly struggling with something, and they’re always trying to figure out how to get by in this world. And so often, they’re just barely holding on by their fingernails.
But they are also resilient. They push through—sometimes with grace, sometimes angry and frustrated. But they find a way to keep going. That’s what we love about them: They don’t give up when life gets tough. They fight back, or at least they try.
There are so many great quotes from Ernest Hemingway that it can be hard to choose just one. But we’ve done our best to narrow it down!
