I found this quote as I toiled away at the challengingly self reflective process of reworking my website. As I consider what I have done in my career, what I am really passionate about professionally and personally, and look ahead considering where I want to focus my future efforts, these words have been a filter for what is true.
It seems unlikely I could relate to anything written by Hemingway. I wrote my senior thesis about his works in high school and I'm familiar with his acerbic outlook on life.
But thrilling in knowledge and the passion for the unusual, which he spoke about in his Nobel Acceptance speech, is one of the most resonant quotes I have read for who I am in life and in my work. Hemingway-who would have thought!
