Quote and Additions to Word Hoard

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.
