7 Words of Wisdom from Ernest Hemingway on How to Live a Meaningful Life

Love him or loathe him, Ernest Hemingway has had an undeniable influence on American literature of the 20th century.

Here is wordables pick of the best.

On Nobility

Hemingway Quote 01

Yes. A way of putting down anyone who has ever thought he was better than someone else while simultaneously putting the burden of improvement onto the self, this is one of Hemingway’s most enduring quotes.

On Sleep

Hemingway 02

Sleep is the body’s way of healing itself. Sleep is also the only time you can’t get into any trouble so maybe Hemingway should’ve slept a little more.

Hemingway 03

Open your hearts, people. What’s the worst that can happen…

On Listening

On Strength

Hemingway 05

Yes, life can be cruel but what doesn’t kill you will make you stronger.

I advocate a small amount of Dutch courage but there’s really no bigger bore than the drunken, ‘first thing tomorrow I’m going to blah, blah, blah blah’, person.

On The World

Hemingway 07
