The following quote is misattributed to "Death in the Afternoon." Shouldn't this be cited as from "A Farewell to Arms"? The quote is below (footnote 162 is the authority given ...):
The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.
Thanks for noting! It looks like the mark-up for the quote box was copied and a quote added without changing the attribution. I've commented it out for now. The quote boxes need some work and I'll get back in a few days or so to sort them out. Victoria (tk) 20:10, 12 November 2014 (UTC)
I removed the comment notation and updated/fixed the reference. FWIW, the reference was correct, once upon a time, and then it was changed, apparently. (It may not be perfect, but it should do, for now.) This is a quote that we don't want to lose, IMHO. Elizabeth Blandra (talk) 05:40, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
John Kelly, Thanks for drawing attention to this and finding a reference. John and Victoriaearle, We can always update the reference but, for now, the quote is back in place. My understanding, given very limited time to explore the issue, is that one version of the book contains the quotation and another does not, FWIW. I'm still trying to locate it in my version -- the Google Books link may help me to find it. When time permits, I'll fix the reference that we're using now. (As I noted in my quick response last night, the reference was correct a long time ago, though there wasn't a page number. Much later, the attribution was apparently changed, inadvertently, it would seem.) I like the quote and would hate to see it removed or get lost in the shuffle, as I noted above. We can always fine-tune it. Hope we're all in agreement. Elizabeth Blandra (talk) 19:23, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
Hi, I thought I'd fixed this, but apparently not. Anyway, I see that page numbers are needed. Off to sort through the bookcases to find the book. Back in a bit. Victoria (tk) 20:12, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
Ok, I see from this discussion (where I had a different user name!) that I couldn't find my copy of A Farewell to Arms in 2012. I do remember locating it, but it's disappeared again. Anyway, I decided to go with the Scribner's 1929 version from g-books, with a link (but it's only a snippet view) instead of using the reprinted Simon and Shuster editions. In the meantime I'll keep looking and when I find the book will probably update again. I've also updated the sources to it reflects the edition used, and I updated the other quote box too. Thanks Elizabeth Blandra for noting and responding here! And thanks for the help. Busy holidays and all that, and I'd completely forgotten. Victoria (tk) 21:14, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Here's a reference: www.archives.gov/publications/prologue/2006/spring/hemingway.html Elizabeth Blandra (talk) 16:01, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
It would seem that we should honor the request. Here's a supporting quote from the reference that follows it (and also highlighted, above):
"In a small ceremony in June 1947 at the U.S. embassy in Cuba, Hemingway was awarded a Bronze Star for his service as a war correspondent for having circulated "freely under fire in combat areas in order to obtain an accurate picture of conditions. Through his talent of expression, Mr. Hemingway enabled readers to obtain a vivid picture of the difficulties and triumphs of the front-line soldier and his organization in combat."" www.archives.gov/publications/prologue/2006/spring/hemingway.html Elizabeth Blandra (talk) 16:01, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
@Edgars2007 Hemingway's Bronze Medal award is already covered; the last paragraph in section 1.8 World War II (and cited). If, on the other hand, the request is for addition to the Notable awards section of the infobox, well, that section is, for a person whose primary notability is as an author, for awards in the literary field. —Neonorange (talk) 22:42, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
