Respectfully Quoted: A Dictionary of Quotations. 1989.
Ernest Hemingway (18991961)
All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you; the good and the bad, the ecstacy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was.
ERNEST HEMINGWAY, Old Newsman Writes, Esquire, December 1934, p. 26.
