Sorrow

From Hemingway 'Islands in the Stream':

"He thought that on the ship he could come to terms with his sorrow, not knowing, yet, that there are no terms to be made with sorrow. It can be cured by death and it can be blunted or anaesthetised by various things. Time is supposed to cure it, too. But if it is cured by anything less than death, the chances are that it was not true sorrow."
Just beginning to realise how good this Hemingway book is and the above quote is only one example of the almost constant amazing quotes that could be made and posted on this blog.

I actually quite like Hemmingway but I don't think I've read this one.
