A quote by Ambrose Bierce, 1842 - 1913/14?
- The fact that boys are allowed to exist at all is evidence of remarkable Christian forbearance among men — were it not for a mawkish humanitarianism, coupled with imperfect digestive powers, we should devour our young, as Nature intended.
Ambrose Bierce - "Town Crier" column, San Francisco News-Letter (ca. 1870)
