The world breaks everyone and, afterward, many are strong at the broken places.
(A Farewell to Arms)
The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them.
Never mistake motion for action.
Always do sober what you said you’d do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.
I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen.
Courage is grace under pressure.
It’s none of their business that you have to learn how to write. Let them think you were born that way.
Worry a little bit every day and in a lifetime you will lose a couple of years. If something is wrong, fix it if you can. But train yourself not to worry: Worry never fixes anything.
There is nothing else than now. There is neither yesterday, certainly, nor is there any tomorrow. How old must you be before you know that? There is only now, and if now is only two days, then two days is your life and everything in it will be in proportion. This is how you live a life in two days. And if you stop complaining and asking for what you never will get, you will have a good life. A good life is not measured by any biblical span.
(For Whom the Bell Tolls)
We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.
(The Wild Years)
