Generous

Postby Slava » Mon Aug 12, 2013 5:43 pm

I came across the word congenerous, which means "of the same kind or genus." This led me to look up the simple word generous. Come to find out, generous comes from the Latin "of noble birth." Now who would have thought that the nobles were generous? :)
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.
