There are so many great things, tidbits, nuggets, and moments of strength in this quote. I find so much going on around my life, young ones gone too soon, old ones moving on to the next adventure, and moments sweeping by so fast that you’ve hardly a moment to recognize them. When it is in your grasp, take a moment and hold on, because you’ll never know when it will be gone.
From things that have happened and from things as they exist and from all things that you know and all those you cannot know, you make something through your invention that is not a representation but a whole new thing truer than anything true and alive, and you make it alive, and if you make it well enough, you give it immortality. That is why you write and for no other reason that you know of. But what about all the reasons that no one knows? – Ernest Hemingway
