“Ultimately I think all addictions boil down to just not being able to be with yourself for any long degree of time. You need an entire drama to construct your life around to avoid living it.”

"When people talk, listen completely. Don’t be thinking what you’re going to say. Most people never listen. Nor do they observe. You should be able to go into a room and when you come out know everything that you saw there and not only that. If that room gave you any feeling you should know exactly what it was that gave you that feeling." - Ernest Hemingway

Happy birthday Ernest Hemingway!
