By Ambrose Bierce.

There are 2 quotes by Ambrose Bierce in our database:

Certain old men prefer to rise at dawn, taking a cold bath and a long walk with an empty stomach and otherwise mortifying the flesh. They then point with pride to these practices as the cause of their sturdy health and ripe years; the truth being that they are hearty and old, not because of their habits, but in spite of them. The reason we find only robust persons doing this thing is that it has killed all the others who have tried it.
(The Devil's Dictionary).

Education: That which discloses to the wise and disguises from the foolish their lack of understanding.
(The Devil's Dictionary).
