War

Never think that war, no matter how necessary, nor how justified, is not a crime.
Ernest Hemingway
I don't know that this line wasn't just a throwaway, something written in a moment for a moment. The trouble with quotes is that the context around them is removed for all but those who know intimately the source. At the best, citation evokes the full deeper meaning of the quote's context. More usually for many of us, the quote must stand upon its own, its meaning something we give it in our contemplation, however long or short, deep or shallow, full or thin that might have been.
