2nd BATXILLERAT - The Devil's Dictionary

Sorry, I don't know who took this picture.
Ambrose Bierce was a North American journalist and author of the Devil's Dictionary, a book where he collected his critical, ferocious and etherodox definitions. Let's see a few examples:

History, n. History is an account, mostly false, of events, mostly unimportant, which are brought about by rulers, mostly knaves, and soldiers, mostly fools.

Responsibility, n. A detachable burden easily shifted to the shoulders of God, Fate, Fortune, Luck or one's neighbour. In the days of astrology it was customary to unload it upon a star.

Revenge, n. Sending your girl's love letters to your rival after ha has married her.

Wedding, n. A ceremony at which two persons undertake to become one, one undertakes to become nothing, and nothing undertakes to become supportable.

Now, the usual exercise: say which definition you like most and why you like it.
