Quidnunc

Postby Slava » Thu Sep 19, 2013 2:41 pm

A simple word, but perhaps a nice addition to our list of Qs. A nice way of saying someone's nosy.
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.

And straight out of Latin 101, right next to quo vadis. I like it.
It is dark at night, but the Sun will come up and then we can see.

"Who, what, when, how, where, why, and what now?"
