No one ever becomes a master

We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.

-Ernest Hemingway (1899 – 1961), New York Journal, 1961

Shared wisdom

My poet-blogger-friend Suzette posts quotes every day (Suzette’s blog is amazing) and shared Hemingway’s words of wisdom (above) with me in a recent exchange of ours.

I was expressing some frustration with a Welsh-style poem of mine and how it it was refusing to conform to my desires, and this enlightened and humble Hemingway quote was exactly what I needed at that moment…

Thanks, Suzette 🧸

  1. Thank you for asking, David. My health is about the same, but a lot of time and energy is being consumed by my son and trying to help him with his plans to relocate. Take care. ❤
