A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
From Latin semper (always) + aeternus (eternal). Earliest documented use: before 1475.
"The US Postal Service might embrace sempiternal status, too, in the form of a stamp that would enable the bearer to infinitely freeze the price of first-class postage with a 'forever' stamp."
Kathy Stevens; Post Office Hopes 'Forever' Stamp Will Deliver; The York Dispatch (Pennsylvania); Feb 27, 2007.
