A Quote by Ambrose Gwinett Bierce on pride, providence, slang, speech, and wit
SLANG, n. The speech of one who utters with his tongue what he thinks with his ear, and feels the pride of a creator in accomplishing the feat of a parrot. A means (under Providence) of setting up as a wit without a capital of sense.
