    Bierce has written much of the best and most epigrammatic prose in the English language, but it is hard to quote him briefly out of context. For example:
    A community without crime would be a community without warm and elevated sentiments—without the sense of justice, without generosity, without courage, without magnanimity—a community of small, smug souls, uninteresting to God and uncoveted by the Devil.
