The words of Hemingway

"The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places."
~ Ernest Hemingway (July 21, 1899 - July 2, 1961)

I liked this Hemingway quote posted by a Facebook friend. It's one I had not heard before -- I've seen it expressed in other ways by other people -- but it is quite accurate.

It certainly applies to many people I know in all walks of life who have taken their hard knocks, picked themselves up, dusted themselves off, and become more determined to carry on. It divides those who say, "I can," from those who say, "It's your fault."

I'm glad to know so many "I can" people.
