Forgotten Words – Forgotten Attitudes

What do we want?


When do we want them?

Right now!

Are we likely to get them??!

F*&@ no!

In a world where the words we use, and our attitudes, are supposedly of utmost importance, words are regularly passing out of use from the English language.  We become dumbed down intellectually, ethically, and spiritually. Here are a few words which have been forgotten, though they were in regular use just a few decades ago. Interestingly, they’re all related in meaning:





“I pray thee then, write me as someone who loves his fellow man.”  (Abou ben Adhem)

Donald Trump is gone, although, if he can evade the FBI on his magpie collection of classified documents, he’s threatening to return in 2024.  While he facilitated much of the above, and vindicated it to a too-large swath of the American population, he was not the cause of it.  He was merely a visible symptom of the cultural rot.

As ye sow, so shall ye reap.

Be nice to each other out there.  Okay?  The life you save may be your own.

Thus endeth the reading of the first lesson.  More of the usual drivel soon.

    Good manners yes, but these days I just miss common decency.

    Social media has made it all too easy to gain attention without effort and forethought. That genie won’t go back in the bottle.

  3. I hope more people realize that Trump was not the reason for the mess we are in. He was the result of the mess, the pointed end of the stick. If we are unlucky, he will be only the first of many.

    I remember having heard those words years ago. Do they mean something?
