FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS by Ernest Hemingway

“… nothing is done to oneself that one does not accept…”

“But an intelligent man is sometimes forced to be drunk to spend his time with fools”.

“…the point that you must make your whole life in the two nights that are given to you; that living as we do now you must concentrate all of that which you should always have into the short time that you can have it.”

“There is only now, and if now is only two days, then two days is your life and everything in it will be in proportion. This is how you live a life in two days. And if you stop complaining and asking for what you never will get, you will have a good life. A good life is not measured by any biblical span”.
