Hemingway & Gellhorn (2012 TV Movie)
Martha Gellhorn: Past five minutes, I've watched you. I've watched you type pages and let them float into the wastebasket.
Ernest Hemingway: Never crumple pages. Always let them float gently into the basket.
Ernest Hemingway: Any writer who rips out his stuff and crumples it will go insane in a year, guaranteed.
Ernest Hemingway: Writing's like mass. God gets mad if you don't show up.
Ernest Hemingway: Hey, no snooping.
Martha Gellhorn: Come on, muses always snoop.
Ernest Hemingway: Done by noon... drunk by 3:00. That's my philosophy.
Ernest Hemingway: In this world, when you find a good place, you don't leave it.
Ernest Hemingway: That woman loves humanity, but can't stand people.
Martha Gellhorn: We were good in war. And when there was no war, we made our own.
Martha Gellhorn: The battlefield neither of us could survive was domestic life.
Ernest Hemingway: Writing, at its best, is a lonely life.
Ernest Hemingway: As a writer grows in public stature, he sheds his loneliness, and often his work deteriorates, for he does his work alone.
Ernest Hemingway: And if he's a good enough writer, he must face eternity, or the lack of it, each day.
Martha Gellhorn: I do not see myself as a footnote to someone else's life.
Ernest Hemingway: So what do you do, sophisticated?
Martha Gellhorn: What do I do? Lately, I've been seeing the world.
Ernest Hemingway: How is the world?
Ernest Hemingway: Let's see the review.
Martha Gellhorn: What?
Ernest Hemingway: Come, on Gellhorn. Every writer keeps one review.
Martha Gellhorn: Well, you can blame Mrs. Roosevelt. She encouraged me to write it.
