Fantastic Fables by Ambrose Bierce

160 - The Statesman and the Horse
The Thrift of Strength - 162

An AErophobe

A CELEBRATED Divine having affirmed the fallibility of the Bible, was asked why, then, he preached the religion founded upon it.

"If it is fallible," he replied, "there is the greater reason that I explain it, lest it mislead."

"Then am I to infer," said his Questioner, "that YOU are not fallible?"

"You are to infer that I am not pneumophagous."
