Word of the Day
- One who indulges in light, playful chatter; a banterer; a quiz.
This comes from the French word for 'to banter lightly.'
Quote of the DayAn extra-terrestrial philosopher, who had watched a single youth up to the age of twenty-one and had never come across any other human being, might conclude that it is the nature of human beings to grow continually taller and wiser in an indefinite progress towards perfection; and this generalisation would be just as well founded as the generalisation which evolutionists base upon the previous history of this planet.
- Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970), British philosopher, mathematician.
