Ernest Hemingway – Beauty And Simplicity

Ernest Hemingway once wrote a short story using only 6 words:

“For sale:
Baby shoes.
Never worn.”

It is said that the story was the result of a bet with friends who asked him not only to write a complete short story but one that would make a woman cry.

They lost, and paid up.

Hemingway thought it was one of his best.

Absolutely beautiful.
