The Devil's Dictionary

Post by Paidion » Tue Aug 10, 2021 7:57 pm

Taken From “The Devil's Dictionary”

Abstainer— A weak person who yields to the temptation of denying himself a pleasure.

Bigot— One who is obstinately and zealously attached to an opinion that you do not entertain.

Conservative—A statesman who is enamored with existing evils, as distinguished from the Liberal, who wishes to replace them with others.

Stupidity—Youth ages, immaturity is outgrown, ignorance can be educated, and drunkenness sobered, but stupid lasts forever.”—Aristophanes(460-380 BC)

Man judges a person by his past deeds, and administers penalties for his wrongdoing. God judges a person by his present character, and disciplines him that he may become righteous.
