Bearing Witness to Life

Aug 31

“What did he fear? It was not fear or dread. It was a nothing that he knew too well. It was all a nothing and a man was nothing too. It was only that and light was all it needed and a certain cleanness and order. Some lived in it and never felt it but he knew it was all nada y pues nada y nada y pues nada.” — Ernest Hemingway, from The Middle-Aged Waiter (thoughts), “A Clean, Well-Lighted Place,”  (via violentwavesofemotion)

“If she had nothing more than her voice she could break your heart with it. But she has that beautiful body and the timeless loveliness of her face. It makes no difference how she breaks your heart if she is there to mend it.” — Ernest Hemingway on Marlene Dietrich (via violentwavesofemotion)

You cannot call a society which has 3.5 million homeless and 18.5 million vacant homes civil. That’s violent and morally bankrupt.
