Death in the Afternoon

Hemingway said, “Bullfighing is the only art in which the artist is in danger of death and in which the degree of brilliance in the performance is left to the fighter’s honour.”

Another good line from this book which can aptly be applied to different situations in life is “anything capable of arousing passion in its favor will surely raise as much passion against it”.
