The sun also rises...hopefully
I was searching for a quote and Ernie's little truisms just came spilling forth from the display screen like freshly poured cream.
I include a few for your amusement and reading pleasure.
A man's got to take a lot of punishment to write a really funny book.
An intelligent man is sometimes forced to be drunk to spend time with his fools.
Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.
Never confuse movement with action.
Never go on trips with anyone you do not love.
The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them.
The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.
There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.
Develop a built-in bullshit detector.
The first draft of anything is shit.
