Word of the Day
- Withering but not falling off, as a blossom that persists on a twig after flowering.
The word 'marcescent' comes from a Latin word meaning 'to wither'.
Quote of the DayNatural science will in time incorporate into itself the science of man, just as the science of man will incorporate into itself natural science: there will be one science.
- Karl Marx (1818 - 1883)
