Topic: Patriotism is like charity—it begins at home.

Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it.

Topic: Eulogy, n.: Praise of a person who has either the advantages of wealth and power, or the consideration to be dead.

No eulogy is due to him who simply does his duty and nothing more.

Topic: fretful

You may be fretful because you're worried about a friend, you're waiting for news, you're incredibly irritated with your little brother, or simply because you're an anxious and restless person. The word at the heart of fretful is fret, a verb meaning "worry" which is rooted in the Old English fretan, "to eat or devour." From this, fret grew to mean "being eaten away by worry."

Someone who's fretful can't relax. You might be fretful — upset and fidgety — if you're waiting to hear whether or not you've been accepted into a competitive summer music program

Topic: polarity
Posted: Friday, September 29, 2017 1:27:41 AM
Polarity can literally refer to a positive or negative electric charge. Less literally, it indicates something with two opposing but related qualities. You might visualize polarity as a battery holder with a plus sign on one end and a negative on the other. More than just opposites, polarity suggests opposites that are interconnected. What would the light of day be without the dark of night? Good without evil? Yin without Yang?

Polarity is a relationship between two opposite characteristics or tendencies, like the polarity of two sides of a debate, or of the superhero and villain in a comic book.
