A Quote by Ambrose Gwinett Bierce on fiction, god, imagination, novelty, romance, and thought

ROMANCE, n. Fiction that owes no allegiance to the God of Things as They Are. In the novel the writer's thought is tethered to probability, but in romance it ranges at will over the entire region of the imagination . . .

Ambrose Bierce (1842 - 1914)
