  •  I once told a friend "The unexamined life is not (5+ / 0-)

    worth living"; he replied, "the unlived life is not worth examining".

    The trick is getting the balance right. I think Hemingway achieved this - his discipline, his regimen of writing, he built himself around it. But it was private, so the Hemingway he played on the world stage was only the living-out-loud side of him.

    "Every man has a right to utter what he thinks truth" Samuel Johnson
