The Quote at the top...

Quote
Let me tell you about the very rich. They are different from you and me.

 F. Scott Fitzgerald

Yes, they have more money.

Ernest Hemingway

 


At the top of the page... this wasn't the exchange really. If you know the background information on this conversation, Hemingway actually swindled Fitzgerald out of the better line there -took advantage of him for the  publicity. The real exchange was as follows:

Fitzgerald - Let me tell you about the very rich. They are different from you and me.

Hemingway - How are they different Scott?

Fitzgerald - Well, they have more money!

Hemingway - Yes, they have more money.

You'll have to recall my source yourself... I'm working on an English right now and dont' have time to find it for you... but it was on a documentary... so it's credible. ^-^;

peace out, -Zack

I read that the dialogue never happened. The Fitzgerald's quote is from The Rich Boy and Hemingway's is from The Snows of Kilimanjaro.

I am not going to look for your source if not for any other reason than because I don't think that that line is outstanding. It is only remarkable because of a big name attached to it.

Well, I agree it's of no major significance.. just something I mentioned in passing because I was bored. ^-^
