Hunting

There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.   Ernest Hemingway

Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961), born in Oak Park, Illinois, started his career as a writer in a newspaper office in Kansas City at the age of seventeen. After the United States entered the First World War, he joined a volunteer ambulance unit in the Italian army. Serving at the front, he was wounded, was decorated by the Italian Government, and spent considerable time in hospitals. After his return to the United States, he became a reporter for Canadian and American newspapers and was soon sent back to Europe to cover such events as the Greek Revolution.

This is a 100% true statement.  I have hunted animals and I have hunted men there is no comparison.
