Bill Gorton on Being Daunted: A Twitter Bio for the Lost Generation

 I’m rereading Ernest Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises for the first time in many, many years.  There are problems with it.  The brief observation below about one of Bill Gorton’s better lines is in no way meant to mitigate other issues with the text. 

“Ought not to daunt you.  Never be daunted. Secret of my success.  Never been daunted.  Never been daunted in public.”

If that’s not a twitter bio for the Lost Generation, I don’t know what is.
