Below are some writing pieces of Hemingway: 

  • The way to make people trustworthy is to trust them.
  • When people talk, listen completely. Don’t be thinking about what you’re going to say. Most people never listen.
  • But man is not made for defeat… A man can be destroyed but not defeated.
  • Courage is grace under pressure.
  • The world breaks everyone, and afterwards, many are strong at the broken places.
  • Forget your personal tragedy. We are all bitched from the start, and you especially have to hurt like hell before you can write seriously. But when you get the damned hurt, use it-do not cheat with it. Be as faithful to it as a scientist—but don’t think anything is of any importance because it happens to you or anyone belonging to you.
  • Always do sober what you said you’d do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.
  • An intelligent man is sometimes forced to be drunk to spend time with his fools.
  • In order to write about life, first, you must live it.
  • As a writer, you should not judge; you should understand.
  • All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn. American writing comes from that. There was nothing before. There has been nothing as good since. 
  • There is no friend as loyal as a book.  
  • There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed. 
  • The first draft of anything is shit.
