Ernest Hemingway je jednom rekao da je njegov najbolji rad prica koju je napisao u samo sest rijeci: 'Prodaju se: djecje cipelice, nikad nosene.'
Ernest Hemingway once said his best work was a story he wrote in just six words: 'For sale: baby shoes, never worn.'

The following story:

Ernest Hemingway was lunching at the Algonquin, sitting at the famous "round table" with several writers, claiming he could write a six-wordlong short story.
The other writers balked. Hemingway told them to ante up ten dollars each. If he was wrong, he would match it; if he was right, he would keep the pot.
He quickly wrote six words on a napkin and passed it around.
The words were: "For Sale: Baby Shoes, Never Worn."
Papa won the bet: His short story was complete. It had a beginning, a middle, and an end!

&... comment:

"Hemingway came up with six words: 'For sale: Baby shoes. Never used.'
Jesus. I mean, come on. Isn't that great? That's all there is. Six words. There's a book, there's a movie, there's a short story,
there's a poem — anything you want to do with those six words, you can do it. It's just amazing what you can do with your words.
And if it doesn't work, you can beat it to death with a club, and it won't work."
