Word of the Day
Thursday, February 22, 2007
Sympathy (noun) – Compassion, pity or sorrow for someone’s plight; mutual understanding (from Greek)

Word in a Sentence: In my novel Choices Meant for Gods, Nigel is in sympathy with Jake when their father announces the reason for the emperor’s visit, but he makes no move to stop the plan from moving forward.

Your turn! And you remember the difference between sympathy and empathy from yesterday’s Word of the Day, yes?

“Some days, you just want the dragon to win.”

While I can not empathize at all with the likes of Brittany Spears or Anna Nicole Smith, I do have sympathy for their family members who have to cope with the end result of their antics.

Agreed!

I'd like to empathize with the emotional strain of splitting their million-dollar estates...but, yes, the rest, I can happily leave in Hollywood.
