According to Radio 4 yesterday morning, In the 1920s, Ernest Hemingway bet ten dollars that he could write a complete story in just six words. He wrote: "For Sale: baby shoes, never worn." He won the bet.

They then went on to challenge the listeners to sum up their life story in the same six words. Here's mine. What's Yours?

"Constant struggle against apathy; small victories."
