Ambrose Bierce

Ambrose Bierce

Ambrose Bierce was a 19th-century journalist, short story writer, and satirist, who is known for his lexicon, The Devil’s Dictionary.

Some examples of his satire: “Speak when you are angry and you will make the best speech you will ever regret.”

“The accordion is an instrument with the sentiments of an assassin!” And finally, he called the lyre “an ancient instrument of torture.”
