Farewell to Arms- “If people bring courage” Ernest Hemingway

“If people bring so much courage to this world the world has to kill them to break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterwards many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.”~Ernest Hemingway

My favorite book of his is “For Whom the Bell Tolls”. The title was taken from a poem by John Donne written about the Bubonic Plague.

Donne’s “Meditation 17” is one of a series of essays he wrote when he was seriously ill in the winter of 1623, some say it was 1624, and has since been popularly remembered for one excerpt:

No man is an island,
entire of itself;
every man is a piece of the continent,
a part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less,
as well as if a promontory were.
as well as if a manor of thy friend’s
or of thine own were.
Any man’s death diminishes me,
because I am involved in mankind;
and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
it tolls for thee.

Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    A., you have a caring heart that’s so rare today. I can see why your near death experience left you earth bond. You’re truly an earth angel. You do things like those Lady Gaga did the Grammy.

    Just as your friend who didn’t die from the heart attack because he or she is still needed. I’m grateful to God he or she didn’t die. I have never had a near death experience but I have read they change people.

  5. Brendan, helping SZA and Liza was things people just do. 🙂 Yes, I would have the same. 🙂

      No they wouldn’t have helped SZA and they lost a Gammy against her. Most people would have tripped her down and they would have laughed at Liza’s confusion.

          So I have heard some say that. I guess it’s different for different people but you still remember enough to know what’s happening around you. You are aware of the interactions with others. 😃

            • I guess it’s different for each person. My first one, I was very young, but I don’t think I experience any absent of mindness. I guess it’s because I was unconscious, but I fully remembers everything I saw and heard to this day all that I saw. 🙂 I guess I was too young to know if I was experiencing an absent mindedness.

              One thing about this experience is know what you know and no one can tell you any different. 🙂

      Yernasia what people fail to realized and what doctors fail to tell them is chronic depression create chronic illnesses. Depression tears the body down as well as the mind. Eventually the person is suffering from aches and pains all the time. These chronic illnesses increase as they age. I don’t know what you’re depressed over, but life get easier.

(Energetic Evolution Process) I Quit Medical Intervention…people don’t die from cancer; they die from chemo and radio therapy that slowly kills them…people who drink red wine steadily throughout the day sleep well; they also live longer than ‘healthy’ people because red wine is good for the heart; just now I had a heart attack and I AM Still Here in 3D

    Sorry, I didn’t know you were a divorcée.
    Yes, the first few years can be tough but eventually you learn to enjoy your freedom.
    If he cheated. Forget him. 😴 He doesn’t deserve anymore of your time and energy.

        Oh, okay, it doesn’t matter in my book. Pain is pain whether you’re male or female. I am glad you are alive. And I am happy you selected life.
        I got divorced the first time over forty years ago. The second time twenty four years ago. Got remarried the third time twenty two years ago. Was I depressed about the lost of my first love? Yes, for a while, but I had three small children care for and couldn’t dwell on their father and my broken heart. Or my babies would suffer. What I am saying is let her go. Nobody is worth dying over. You can’t find the person meant for you if you keep looking back at the past. You gotta keep looking ahead instead.

    • Wow! You were having a vivid, lucid dream. It’s said dreams are our way of working things out. I don’t thing any one fully understand what the 5th Dimension truly is.
      The concept of the human Fifth Dimension means that humankind is psychosomatically woven into the universal fabric of spacetime in continuum, that endows him/her with a powerful role and verifies the concept of Stanislav Grof. .

      I’m happy you were brought back. I know the experience was weird to you. 🙂
