I Did Not Make It Up
Those definitions were lifted from Gustave Flaubert’s
unfinished and unpublished Dictionary of Accepted Ideas.
Gustave said other surprisingly contemporary things as well:
“To be stupid, and selfish, and to have good health are the three
requirements for happiness; though if stupidity is lacking,
the others are useless.” – Gustave Flaubert
