A Life Irony - Ernest Hemingway



The best people possess 

a feeling for beauty, 

the courage to take risks, 

the discipline to tell the truth, 

the capacity for sacrifice. 


Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed."


- Ernest Hemingway




This is a Life Irony.

I thought a lot about this and my tentative idea is 'This world is an 'experimental silo' to harden a good human soul for another purpose.

Without falling, we cannot learn how to stand. 
Without hurting, we cannot learn how to heal. 
Without disgusting, we cannot learn what is the beauty. 
Without paradox, we cannot transform.

A beautiful soul just needs to be persistent in this ironic experimental silo. Once the soul is sufficiently hardened, a mission awaits for it.
