Not Loving Well

Updated: Feb 13

“All cowardice comes from not loving, or not loving well, which is the same thing.”


I think that was Hemingway that said that,

And he,

Well he could cut through your soul like a hot knife cutting through a steaming pile of shit—

Bullshit—your bullshit,

To be precise—

With his brutal 

Honesty.


But maybe it wasn't him that said that . . .?


Maybe it was one of those other writers?


I only read Ernest once when I was 18,

And I barely remember

His brutal honesty

Anymore.


But, when one of his quotes

Pops up

It always hurts,

Like a solid body shot does,

And I think that's what he was intending to do to me.


After all,

They say he was a fighter.



. . .


It turns out

That the quote

Is a line in a movie

Spoken by the character Hemingway

In a movie

Written by Woody Allen

About an author in Paris.


How cool.
