hi smart people.  

I'm looking for a Hemingway quote concerning karma.  My dad was trying to recall the quote to make me feel better about someone who "wronged" me, but he couldnt remember it.  He said it was something about how we don't need to worry about getting our revenge on evil men because the world will take care of them... and something about "in business and in life."

Does anyone know the exact quote I'm talking about?

You probably are looking for my favorite Hemingway quote. It is from A Farewell To Arms.
"The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at 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."

Mike
