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 DayScience is Christian, not when it condemns itself to the letter of things, but when, in the infinitely little, it discovers as many mysteries and as much depth and power as in the infinitely great.
- Edgar Quinet (1803 - 1875)
