Dear Dr. Goodword,

Wanted you to know how much I use your 'Search' index for past words of the day. As a matter of fact, I search you before I Google the internet! Case in point...I was sent a quote that I needed help decoding and after I checked the words I was unsure about, I knew exactly what Seneca was trying to say:
“Happy the man who can endure the highest and the lowest fortune. He, who has endured such vicissitudes with equanimity, has deprived misfortune of its power.”
~Lucius Annaeus Seneca, Roman Stoic philosopher, statesman and dramatist, (4 B.C.-A.D. 65)~
Thanks Doc for all that you and your staff do to help those of us that are learning more and more!

“The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.”
~Mark Twain, [pen name for Samuel Clemens], American author and humorist, (1835-1910)~

I somehow don't recall seeing this post earlier, but here are links to the two words, as treated by the Good Doctor:
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.
