Word of the Day
Wednesday, February 21, 2007
Empathize (intransitive verb) – To feel empathy (empathy is understanding intimately someone or something’s motives or feelings or thoughts, etc.; not to be confused with sympathy – this should be a Grammar Guide, eh?) (from Greek empatheia, passion)

Word in a Sentence: I empathize with Abigail Farrier from Choices Meant for Gods because I, too, have felt the deep yearning for something I cannot have.

Your turn! Who do you empathize with? Now, remember – empathy is deep and emotional, not mere sympathy. And you can see the blog of Abigail Farrier at (It is very pink.)

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