"But I would rather have it bent and dull and know I had to put it on the grindstone again and hammer it into shape and put whetstone to it, and know that I had something to write about, than to have it bright and shining and nothing to say, or smooth and well-oiled in the closet, but unused.
Now it is necessary to get to the grindstone again."

"Now he would never write the things that he saved to write until he knew enough to write them well. Well, he would not have to fail at trying to write them either. Maybe you could never write them, and that was why you put them off and delayed the starting. Well he would never know, now."

" 'If an angel out of heaven
Gives you something else to drink,
Thank him for his kind intentions;
Go and pour them down the sink.' "

"But I don't know.  Seems like when they get started they don't leave a guy nothing."

Ernest Hemingway
