Bierce“There is no fallacy so monstrous, no deduction so hideously unrelated to common sense, as not to receive somewhere in the myriad pages of the awful compilation a support that any judge in the land would be proud to recognize with a decision if ably persuaded. I do not say that the lawyers are altogether accountable for the existence of this mass of disastrous rubbish . . . they only create and thrust it down our throats; we are guilty of contributory negligence by not biting the spoon.”

–Ambrose Bierce, “Some Features of the Law”
