Ernest Hemingway Wrote So…


    "A man can be destroyed but not defeated." ― Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea.

After reading Ernest Hemingway’s ‘The Old Man and the Sea‘, one sentence has got my attention.

“A man can be destroyed but not defeated. ” ― Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea.

A man can be easily destroyed but cannot be defeated completely. It calls for the high spirits of a man.

There would be a lot of things that go deep inside a man’s heart. It hurts him, pulls him down, tests his creditability, challenges him and even makes him appear like a fool. But a man with a strong will power and patience will not be defeated. It is not about the masculinity or testosterone levels. It is all about how a man holds his composure during the hardships and difficult times.

The struggle is so worth fighting for.      

Again, a man can be destroyed but he cannot be defeated completely.
