“For Sale: Baby Shoes, Never Worn.”
In the 1920s, Ernest Hemingway bet ten dollars that he could write a complete story in just six words. He wrote and he won, calling it his best piece of writing.
“And lastly from that period I remember riding in a taxi one afternoon between very tall buildings under a mauve and rosy sky; I began to bawl because I had everything I wanted and knew I would never be so happy again.” —F. Scott Fitzgerald (via romanholidays)
