“One must first of all endure.”

“One must first of all endure.”

“One must first of all endure.”
– Ernest Hemingway

PS: This (endurance and persistence) also mirrors the themes of my personal journey and writings… though definitely without the quality of the “master writer”.


“If a man is called to be a street sweeper,
he should sweep streets even as a Michaelangelo painted,
or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry.
He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say,
‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”

― Dr Martin Luther King Jr.
