  1. "I wish we were Swiss," George said.
    "They've all got goiter," said Nick.
    "I don't believe it," George said.
    'Neither do I," said Nick.
    They laughed.
    "Maybe we'll never go skiing again, Nick," George said.
    "We've got to," said Nick. "It isn't worthwhile if you can't."
    "We'll go all right," George said.
    "We've got to," Nick agreed.
    "I wish we could make a promise about it," George said.
    Nick stood up. He buckled his wind jacket tight. He leaned over George and picked up the two sky poles from against the wall. He stuck on of the sky poles into the floor.
    "There isn't any good in promising," he said.

    From "Cross-Country Snow" by Ernest Hemingway.
