the soul or vital spirit; a person’s creative energy.
Etymology: from Greek, “breath, spirit, wind”; related to pnein, “to blow, breathe”.
[Dilka Bear]



Four be the things I am wiser to know:
Idleness, sorrow, a friend, and a foe.
Four be the things I’d been better without:
Love, curiosity, freckles, and doubt.
Three be the things I shall never attain:
Envy, content, and sufficient champagne.
Three be the things I shall have till I die:
Laughter and hope and a sock in the eye.

Dorothy Parker (via observando)
