Die, Mie & Dice Food Quotes


“Die, n.  The singular of 'dice.'  We seldom hear the word, because there is a prohibitory proverb, 'Never say die.'  At long intervals, however, some one says: 'The die is cast,' which is not true, for it is cut. The word is found in an immortal couplet by that eminent poet and domestic economist, Senator Depew:
'A cube of cheese no larger than a die
May bait the trap to catch a nibbling mie.'”


Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914)
'The Devil's Dictionary' (1911)
