The Devil's Dictionary: Indigestion

by Ambrose Bierce
INDIFFERENT
INDISCRETION

INDIGESTION

-n.

A disease which the patient and his friends frequently mistake for deep religious conviction and concern for the salvation of mankind. As the simple Red Man of the western wild put it, with, it must be confessed, a certain force: "Plenty well, no pray; big bellyache, heap God."
