Ernest Hemingway
“So far, about morals, I know only that what is moral is what you feel good after and what is immoral is what you feel bad after and judged by these standards, which I do not defend, the bullfight is very normal to me because I feel very fine while it is going on and have a feeling of life and death and mortality and immortality, and after it is over I feel very sad but also very fine.”
Ernest Hemingway, Death in the Afternoon

An excerpt from "Acid Indigestion Eyes"
