A Quote by Ambrose Gwinett Bierce on belief, fame, ideas, population, practicality, and soldiers

MALTHUSIAN, adj. Pertaining to Malthus and his doctrines, who believed in artificially limiting population, but found that it could not be done by talking. Herod of Judea, all the famous soldiers have been practical exponents of the Malthusian idea.
