A Higher Grade of Manure

I just finished reading Hemingway’s “A Moveable Feast,” & along with all the quips about traveling and Paris and writing, I found this quote particularly delightful (given how critical I think a good sense of humor is):

They say the seeds of what we will do are in all of us, but it always seemed to me that in those who make jokes in life the seeds are covered with better soil and with a higher grade of manure.

-Ernest Hemingway
