A Quote by Ambrose Gwinett Bierce on disappointment, fame, life, music, performance, promises, and purpose

SIREN, n. One of several musical prodigies famous for a vain attempt to dissuade Odysseus from a life on the ocean wave. Figuratively, any lady of splendid promise, dissembled purpose and disappointing performance.

Ambrose Bierce (1842 - 1914)
