Home is where the heart is,
home is where the fart is.
Come let us fart in the home.
There is no art in a fart.
Still a fart may not be artless.
Let us fart and artless fart in the home.
Ernest Hemingway, 88 Poems (via museoleum)

The world breaks everyone and afterward 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. Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms (via slight-weapons-malfunction)
