A blog about life - the good, the bad, the people, the books, the games, coffee, and food.

Word Wednesday


On Friday I bought this book, it's filled with a 100 rarely words. Some of them are really great to share. Today I present to you agathism.

Agathism: "the doctrine that all things tend towards the ultimate good, as distinguished from optimism which holds that all things are now for the best." *

If you're wondering what the image of Karl Agathon has to do with it then you need to watch Battlestar Galactica; once you do it'll all make sense ;) Not keen on watching then the long and short of it is this: that particular character is all about doing the good thing.

Happy Spring
:)

Me in a nutshell: I game, read, tweet, enjoy good food, have bouts of red pen rage and I'm a coffee snob.
