Word of the day is apothegm: noun, 1. a short, pithy, instructive saying; a terse remark or aphorism. To be distinguished with apophlegm, which is something that used to be an apothegm but got stale with overuse, hardened into dogma and just obstructs breathing new life. E.g., transcend and include, everyone is partially right (but I am more right), integral _______ (fill in the blank), meta________ (fill in the blank), post-post _______ (fill in the blank), etc.
