"A man can be destroyed but not defeated."

"Courage is grace under pressure."

"Never confuse movement with action."

"The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them."

"That terrible mood of depression of whether it's any good or not
is what is known as The Artist's Reward."

"The world is a fine place and worth fighting for."

"The most essential gift for a good writer is a built-in, shock-proof, sh*t detector.
This is the writer's radar and all great writers have had it."

"The Garden of Eden" [1986]
described as "an erotically-charged Jazz Age romance"
Garden of Eden novel by Ernest Hemingway  Hemingway labored on the book for 15 years, still leaving only shards of text; the edited version is not up to any proper standard of 'Hemingway work', but has interest to the scholar or the Hemingway addict. The feature film is a polished version of this sketchy tale, and the new movie adaptation should be judged on its won merits.

Hard-Boiled Masculinities book by Christopher Breu  "Hard-Boiled Masculinities" [2005] by Christopher Breu
A scholarly examination of how and why hard-boiled masculinity emerged during the unsettled times after World War I, shifting from Victorian-influenced depictions of men in top hats & mustaches to the portrayal of much more overtly violent & muscular men, moving back and forth across the divide between high and low culture in American society. Author cites examples from the works of Ernest Hemingway, Dashiell Hammett, Chester Himes, and William Faulkner, as well as many lesser-known writers of the hypermasculine 'tough-guy' pulp magazines of the 1920s and 1930s.
