This evening I was chatting by phone with a priest friend about, inter alia, American novels. Of course the great American novel came up. Hemingway came up, of course, in that context. Though we did not ultimately settle on a final choice, we at least dismissed Huckberry Finn and others in favor of For Whom The Bell Tolls because, inter alia again, it has more epic themes. Our discussions will continue.
However, as we considered aspects of For Whom The Bell Tolls, I recalled a quote about lack of control and a storm which I looked up. It was about snow, but… hey:
“This was a big storm and he might as well enjoy it. It was ruining everything, but you might as well enjoy it.”
