Ernest Hemingway
“If people bring so much courage to this world the world has to kill them to break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places.

Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms

Herman Melville
“A smile is the chosen vehicle of all ambiguities.”
