A Quote by Ambrose Gwinett Bierce on accuracy, authors, birds, feeling, thought, and writing

GOOSE, n. A bird that supplies quills for writing. These [quills] when inked and drawn mechanically across paper by a person called an "author," there results a very fair and accurate transcript of the fowl's thought and feeling.

Ambrose Bierce (1842 - 1914)
