The Devil’s Dictionary

with one comment

I was browsing through Project Gutenberg and came across this book called The Devil’s Dictionary. It had some interesting definitions of common words :

BEAUTY, n. The power by which a woman charms a lover and terrifies her husband.

FIDELITY, n. A virtue peculiar to those who are about to be betrayed.

LEARNING, n. The kind of ignorance distinguishing the studious.
