  1. Ernest Hemingway won the Nobel Prize in Literature. Many readers applauded his writing. But a brief review of a few biographical facts about this man and you will clearly understand and almost feel the pain that must have been in his heart when made this statement.

  2. Every single one of Hemingway’s quotes are deeply touching. This one is by no means an exception to that.

  3. I can’t help but notice that you do have some fondness for Ernest Hemingway. You have shared quite a few of his quotes 🙂

  4. Indeed, everyone is broken in their own way. That is why we are able to take in knowledge and better ourselves and our situation.

  5. Definitely, even in the midst of our brokenness we still see the flicker of light at the end of the tunnel. it shines ever in the dim state.

  6. That is a good way to put it. He is right though if we are broken we are prone to darkness as they say but it can also be a means of enlightenment. Problems these days can do two things to folks. Break them or make them better.

  7. Yea, brokenness allows a show of positivity, hope and new birth. When we rise after been broken, we should be better and stronger.

  8. Nice quote for those that doesn’t give it lateral meanings. This quite is so full of insight. Thanks for sharing.

  9. So true, even gold needs to reach a hire temperatura to become into jewerly pieces. In the hardest moments we give our best.

  10. Truly everyone is broken to a certain degree. The light that shines through at the end of that tunnel of despair – coming from friends, relatives, a random stranger, even a chance ray of sunlight peeking through the storm clouds – really does wonders for people who really need them. This is how our darkness is slowly filled with that light, and use that experience to learn how to become better human beings.
