“‘You shouldn’t write if you can’t write. What do you have to cry about it for? Go home. Get a job. [deleted sentence] Only don’t talk about it. You could never write.’

‘Why do you say that?’

‘Did you ever hear yourself talk?’

‘It’s writing I’m talking about.’

‘Then shut up.'” ~ Ernest HemingwayA Moveable Feast
