Word of the Day
- A perennial plant, Tanacetum Balsamita, of the natural order Compositæ, a native of the south of Europe, long cultivated in gardens for the agreeable fragrance of its leaves.
- Leaves used sparingly (because of bitter overtones) in sauces and soups and stuffings.
This word is Middle English in origin, and ultimately comes from the Latin 'costum,' cost, plus 'marie,' Mary, the mother of Jesus.
Quote of the DayThis we know: the earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. Man did not weave the web of life: he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.
