“W” as in “Wednesday” and “W” as in “Wise Words.” So today I bring you, some wise words by Ernest Hemingway.


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—don’t 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.

As a writer, you should not judge, you should understand.

In order to write about life first you must live it.

There is no friend as loyal as a book.

But man is not made for defeat… A man can be destroyed but not defeated.

Courage is grace under pressure.


I hope you liked these quotes. keep smiling 🙂
