MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”  -Winston Churchill

PRINCESS DIANA’S CHARITY WORK  *******Princess Diana was an amazing worman.  She spent a good part of her life giving of herself and her fortune.  Just looking at pictures of her undeniably genuine smile and touch while she was helping children warms my heart.  It’s easy to tell she made her life worthwhile by giving.  She will always be greatly loved and missed.******* 

WORD OF THE DAY

PARAMOUR

(noun)
[PAR-ah-moor’]

1. a lover, especially an illicit lover: “Jaime is constantly buying expensive presents for her paramour.”


Origin:
Approximately 1300; from Middle English, ‘par amour’: passionately, with strong love or desire; from Anglo-French, ‘par’: by + ‘amour’: love, from Latin, ‘amare’: to love.

In action:
“The heroine of The American President, Sydney Ellen Wade, is a beautiful, brilliant environmental activist who abandons her presidential paramour when he does what politicians do to get legislation through: a deal. In The Contender the vice-presidential nominee refuses to refute rumours about her private life. Although this could easily be done, she stays silent because it is better to abandon great power than compromise a principle.”
Stephen Matchett. “Just like men, actually,” The Australian (September 17, 2005).
