I’m a sucker for Hemingway quotes:

> Interviewer: How much rewriting do you do?

> *Hemingway: It depends. I rewrote the ending of* Farewell to Arms, *the last page of it, 39 times before I was satisfied.*

> Interviewer: Was there some technical problem there? What was it that had stumped you?

> *Hemingway: Getting the words right.*
