Being a dedicated devotee to Anu Garg’s quintessentially useful A.Word.A.Day, I thought I’d share the magnificence from a recent post featuring
PAX DE DEUX
(pah duh DU)
1. A dance for two people.
2. A close relationship between two people or things involved in an activity.
From French, literally step of two.
“This novel The Song Is You is a pas de deux between a young singer-songwriter and the much older man who actively, obsessively inspires her.”
Kate Christensen; Always on My Mind; The New York Times; Apr 10, 2009.
“One of the many paradoxes of this place we call home is the pas de deux of life and death.”
G. D. Maxwell; Screaming Into the Void; Pique Newsmagzaine (Whistler, Canada); Apr 8, 2009.
A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that.
-John Stuart Mill, philosopher and economist (1806-1873)
