Quotes of the Day, the Hemming Way.

Autumn has come and gone where I live, and soon my least favorite part of Summer will arrive – “Winter”.

The Earth, locked in orbit through infinite space around the Sun (the number one source of “Global Warming” and “Climate Change”…but, I digress) and inclined on it’s axis, reliably provides us with the cycle of Seasons representing Birth, Growth, Life, and Death.

It’s a life cycle that’s everywhere you look: The Bible, Societies, Countries, Relationships, Marriages, Corporations, Money, Machinery…you name it. And, it’s not only unavoidable but, unfortunately, finite.

So, in this autumnal period where not only the Earth but nearly everyone I’ve come in contact with the past week or so is experiencing a “death” of sorts – physical, emotional, financial, or otherwise – I offer these these two quotes from the Nobel Prize winning author, journalist, and sportsman Earnest Hemingway:

The Pessimistic Quote:

“Madame, all stories, if continued far enough, end in death, and he is no true-story teller who would keep that from you.”
- Author Ernest Hemingway, “Death in the Afternoon”

The Optimistic Quote:

“Today is only one day in all the days that will ever be. But what will happen in all the other days that ever come can depend on what you do today.”
- Author Ernest Hemingway, “For Whom the Bell Tolls”

So, to everyone out there, yes, it’s pretty bad right now, but do the things you know are right and it will eventually all work out. And, please don’t use the Hemingway solution.

Thanks for Reading!
