"Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut."
Ernest Miller Hemingway (July 21, 1899 - July 2, 1961) was born in Oak Park, Illinois. A recipient of the Nobel Prize (1954) as well as the Pulitzer Prize (1953), Hemingway was a legend of his time and forged his legacy for future generations to come. He began his literary career as a writer for multitude of newspapers before heading to the European front in World War I. After recuperating from injuries from WWI, he began publishing his first stories while working for the Toronto Star. Soon after marrying his first wife he moved to Paris, France where he met many great artists including, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ezra Pound and Pablo Picasso.
After meeting his second wife, Hemingway signed a publishing contract in Paris that was the springboard to future success. He spent much of his free time traveling to Africa for big game hunting, bull fighting in Spain and fishing in Florida.
While working as a correspondent in the Spanish Civil War, he met his 3rd wife, Martha Gellhorn who was also serving as a foreign correspondent. During this time Hemingway gathered material for his Novel For Whom the Bells Toll, which would eventually be nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.
As remarkable as his literary works was the life of this icon. He created a legacy as a traveler, an adventurer, a fisherman and at times the life of the party.
