“I am a writer who came of a sheltered life. A sheltered life can be a daring life as well. For all serious daring comes from within.”-Eudora Welty

  1. Not verbatim but:
    Nietzsche: “You only become a man [read: adult] when you discover in your work the earnestness you had as a child at play.”
    And didn’t Hemingway say something like: “There’s nothing like a horrible childhood as early preparation for being a writer.”

    Not accurate, especially the last, but I think the gist is there.


    • No worries. The gist is always there in your paraphrasing.

      I agree with the Nietzshe.
      I understand Hemingway’s point, but am thankful that it does not apply to me.
