scruple

Postby Eileen Opiolka » Wed Sep 15, 2021 3:51 am

The etymology points to a "small sharp or pointed stone". What a pertinent symbol for the religious scruples that dog some unfortunate people!
Best wishes,

Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.
