Words to live by...

"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."

[Spanish Proverb]

Ius luxuriae publice datum est

(The right to looseness has been officially given)

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."

Apparently, the crossword puzzle that disappeared from the blog, came back.

In a Word...

As I was considering topics, the word "maundering" popped up in my mind. I thought I knew what it meant but wasn't sure so, as I often do with words, I looked it up. This is what I found:

verb (used without object)
1. to talk in a rambling, foolish, or meaningless way.
2. to move, go, or act in an aimless, confused manner: He maundered through life without a single ambition.

I learned something. I learned that my entire life could be summed up in one word. It is a good thing I revere simplicity, isn't it?

I wonder if one can be terse while they maunder?

I've heard of meander, but I don't think I've ever heard of maunder...
