Edible: good to eat and wholesome to digest, as a worm to a toad, a toad to a snake, a snake to a pig, a pig to a man, and a man to a worm.–Ambrose Bierce, c. 1900

Ambrose Bierce was American satirist and writer (1842-1914? He went off to join Sancho Villa and was never seen again).

When William Randolph Hearst asked Ambrose Bierce what he collected, he replied: “I collect words. And ideas. Like you, I also store them. But in the reservoir of my mind. I can take them out and display them at a moment’s notice. Eminently portable, Mr. Hearst. And I don’t find it necessary to show them all at the same time.”
