Stumbled upon this.  Thought you all might find it amusing.  :)

>From THE DEVIL'S DICTIONARY ((C)1911 Released April 15 1993) [devils]:

  REFLECTION, n.  An action of the mind whereby we obtain a clearer view
  of our relation to the things of yesterday and are able to avoid the
  perils that we shall not again encounter.
