Thought for a Friend

Whenever I think of the way the world treats people, I always think of what Hemingway said about being strong in the broken places in A Farewell to Arms. Sometimes it helps.

" If people bring so much courage to this world the world has to kill them to break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good, and the very gentle, and the very brave impartially."
