The Devil's sinful definition of "day"


day (noun) – A period of twenty-four hours, mostly misspent. This period is divided into two parts, the day proper and the night, or day improper – the former devoted to sins of business, the latter consecrated to the other sort. These two kinds of social activity overlap.

– Ambrose Bierce, The Devil’s Dictionary
