Faulkner v Hemingway

Yours truly received a surprisingly large number of emails in response to the humorous quotes tossed into ye olde dryer yesterday.

So, I couldn't resist throwing out this exchange between two of my favorite writers.

Faulkner said of Hemingway, "He has never been known to use a word that might send a reader to the dictionary."

Hemingway's reply: "Poor, Faulkner! Does he realy think big emotions come from big words?"

I think Ernie won that round . . . Sorry, Billy . . .
