Quotable Ernest Hemingway

And what a readers wants most is to believe.

Whimsical Words

Ernest Hemingway American author and Nobel Prize winner in Literature, Ernest Hemingway, wrote The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell to Arms, and For Whom the Bell Tolls. One of my favorite Hemingway quotes: “All good books have one thing in common – they are truer than if they had really happened.”

I love this comment on the difference between “truth” and “facts” for in the hands of a good writer, even the most outrageous fantasy can ring truer than a factual account.
