MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

“Focus more on your desire than on your doubt and the dream will take care of itself.  You may be surprised at how easily this happens.  Your doubts are not as powerful as your desires, unless you make them so.”  -Marcia Weider, Speaker and Author

WORD OF THE DAY

QUONDAM• \KWAHN-dum\adj

: former, sometime

Example Sentence:

A quondam rodeo champ, circuit preacher, and peanut farmer, Baxter has settled into his new life as a stand-up comedian.

Did you know?

Looking for an unusual and creative way to say “former”? “Quondam” (which came to English in the 16th century from Latin quondam, meaning “at one time” or “formerly”) certainly fits the bill. Or maybe you’d prefer one of its synonyms: “whilom,” “ci-devant” or “preterit.” Or you could really go crazy with “umquhile,” a word that is extremely rare even in its more natural Scots English setting. “Quondam” itself isn’t exactly ubiquitous, but it’s used more than any of the other words above. If you’re looking for something a bit more pedestrian, you might try yet another synonym: “erstwhile.” Despite its wonderfully archaic flavor, “erstwhile” is a highly favored alternative.
