Interesting what it allies with -

breath, being alive, soul, anima




But also hatred, envy, animus

Quote:
English
Onde

Etymology 1

From Middle English onde, ande,
from Old English onda, anda (“zeal, indignation, anger, malice, envy, hatred”),
from Proto-Germanic *anadô (“breath, spirit, zeal”),
from Proto-Indo-European *h₂enh₁- (“to breathe, blow”).
Cognate with Scots aynd, eind, end (“breath”), German Ahnd, And (“pain, anguish”), Danish ånd, ånde (“breath, spirit”), Swedish anda, ande (“spirit, breath”), Icelandic andi (“spirit”), Latin anima (“breath, spirit”). More at animal.




So being alive means hating? That is a depressing worldview!

Á Sprengisandi (“On Sprengisandur”) by Grímur Thomsen

Ríðum, ríðum og rekum yfir sandinn,
rennur sól á bak við Arnarfell,
hér á reiki er margur óhreinn andinn,
úr því fer að skyggja á jökulsvell;
Drottinn leiði drösulinn minn,
drjúgur verður síðasti áfanginn.



Ride, ride, ride hard across the sands,
the sun is settling behind Arnarfell.
Here many spirits of the dark
threaten in the gloom over the glacier's ice.
The Lord leads my horse,
it is still a long, long way home.

…..

Upon using an inhaler , it's imperative that after
holding your breath that you exhale
slowly
, thus
enabling the medicine to get deeper into the lungs.
