The most solid advice for a writer is this, I think: Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.

Ernest Hemingway (via irisblasi)

This is a great quote, and deserving of so many notes. There’s only one problem: Ernest Hemingway didn’t write it. William Saroyan did. It’s from his wonderfully witty preface to A Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze, and Other Stories.

This is the second time we’ve had to set the record straight after encountering an incorrect quote attribution on Tumblr. Let’s be more vigilant, people.
