Ernest and Bars

"I am one of those who like to stay late at the cafe," the older waiter said. "With all those who do not want to go to bed. With all those who need a light for the night."
- "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place," Ernest Hemingway

"The strange thing was, he said, how they screamed every night at midnight. I do not know why they screamed at that time. We were in the harbor and they were all on the pier and at midnight they started screaming."
- "In Our Time", Ernest Hemingway

"A man can be destroyed but not defeated."
- "The Old Man and the Sea", Ernest Hemingway

"I know the night is not the same as the day: that all things are different, that the things of the night cannot be explained in the day, because they do not then exist, and the night can be a dreadful time for lonely people once their loneliness has started."
- "A Farewell To Arms", Ernest Hemingway
