Words of the Wise

I'm a big word geek. I love the words. Give me a really good dictionary - because there are also crappy dictionaries - and don't talk to me for half an hour. When I discovered online dictionaries will send subscribers a new definition daily, I subscribed to two in English, and my cousin in Guatemala found one in Italian. It's fun fun fun for me me me.

One of these services is A.Word.A.Day from a woman named Anu Garg, who is witty. Her stories fascinate me. At the end of every communique she includes a quote (or is it 'quotation'? I still have so much to learn) from an observant person with a big brain. Today's was so beautiful.

During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.
-George Orwell, writer (1903-1950)

I should write her another shameless fangirl letter. In a time when mean morons rule the world, people working toward spreading the Smart Stuff should be amply rewarded with love.
