Word of the Day, 4/13/11

Posted by ccasc on April 12, 2011


[vas-uh-leyt] (v.) to waver in mind or opinion; to be indecisive or irresolute.

*From the Latin vacillare, meaning “to waver between two opinions or courses.”

“It seems to me that the problem with diaries, and the reason that most of them are so bring, is that every day we vacillate between examining our hangnails and speculating on cosmic order.”

~Ann Beattie
