So everything below is from the book The Heart of Matter by Evan Currie. It is a great book from a great series.
Its been a long time since I have updated the Word Hoard. I have a couple of new words to add to it:
- Anathema – Something or someone that one vehemently dislikes.
- Diffident – Modest or shy because of a lack of self-confidence.
- Wont – In the habit of doing something; accustomed.
I also found a quote from the same book that I really liked. It seemed to fit today’s atmosphere.
A soldier fought better when he knew that he was not only needed, but appreciated back home. There were a few things as degrading to a man than to come home to the people you served, only to be shunned and reviled by them.
