The Devil's Dictionary - Ambrose Bierce

This quote was added by malevolarky
Birth: the first and direst of all disasters. As to the nature of it there appears to be no uniformity. Castor and Pollux were born from the egg. Pallas came out of a skull. Galatea was once a block of stone. Leucomedon was the son of a cavern in Mount Aetna, and I have myself seen a man come out of a wine cellar.
