Quotes: Hemingway

“It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best,  since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember  them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses  you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven  through as you gain by riding a bicycle.”

Hemingway said that. Never trust a car driver’s estimate of the number of hills on a route – I said that.
