Ambrose Bierce – The Great American Cynic


(Patheos::ATP) – Bert Bigelow:

I posted an earlier article on Bierce that had a long list of quotes from “The Devil’s Dictionary.” Here is a shorter list with some different ones that I think are quite amusing. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

  • Cynic, n: a blackguard whose faulty vision sees things as they are, not as they ought to be. 
  • Edible – good to eat and wholesome to digest, as a worm to a toad, a toad to a snake, a snake to a pig, a pig to a man, and a man to a worm. 
  • Abstainer: a weak person who yields to the temptation of denying himself a pleasure.
