King Louis XIV was a fascinating man and King! His reign (1638-1718) lasted for 72 years, longer than that of any other European sovereign. Known as the Sun King, this man was my favorite French King and these are his last words:
“Why do you weep? Do you think I should live forever? I thought dying had been harder.”
King Louis XIV
Another beautiful word! I just seem to find them a lot lately… or do they find me?
Ruska is a Finnish word that describes the changing of the leaves during Autumn. Below is a video showing Autumn in Finland. And yes, it’s very current. Enjoy all that God-given beauty! ❤
It’s been a while!
This word exists and it’s beautiful! I was not even aware of the Greek scholar by the name of Lucius Cornelius Alexander Polyhistor.
But I am glad that I came across this word and although it would fit better as my last name, I’ll try to use it in a sentence:
Gary did not attain his Degree, but he is considered a Polyhistor by many.
It was love at first sight with this attractive Greek-looking word. *sigh*
Kalopsia is a combination of the Greek roots kallos (beauty) and opsis (sight), so technically in English, it means beautiful sight. Even the word is beautiful. Let me take a moment to reflect on the beauty of this word.
I love coming across strange words! They intrigue me and I sometimes add them to my vocabulary. So here is my attempt at using this beautiful word in a sentence:
She was obviously suffering from kalopsia for she saw the world in him although he treated her harshly.
I am in love with words. Long words. I like spending time trying to pronounce the word accurately before using it in a sentence. Thanks to The Mummy, I can’t unhear today’s word. >.<
A stone coffin (that is associated with the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Rome, and Greece).
Sarcophagus in a sentence
The tomb raider tangled in front of the ancient mummy’s sarcophagus as it was being lifted out of its prison.
