Quotation #11853 from The Devil's Dictionary (Ambrose Bierce):

ABDOMEN, n. The temple of the god Stomach, in whose worship, with sacrificial rights, all true men engage. From women this ancient faith commands but a stammering assent. They sometimes minister at the altar in a half-hearted and ineffective way, but true reverence for the one deity that men really adore they know not. If woman had a free hand in the world's marketing the race would become graminivorous.
Ambrose Bierce, The Devil's Dictionary
US author & satirist (1842 - 1914)
