A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
1. Unsteady movement, such as the staggering, lurching, or nodding of the head or the body.
2. Stuttering or stammering.
From Latin titubare (to stagger). Earliest documented use: 1641.
“He walked hesitatingly to a chair, his titubation increasing.”
Harlan Cozad McIntosh; This Finer Shadow; Dial Press; 1941.
A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:No horse gets anywhere until he is harnessed. No steam or gas drives anything until it is confined. No Niagara is ever turned into light and power until it is tunneled. No life ever grows great until it is focused, dedicated, disciplined. -Harry Emerson Fosdick, preacher and author (24 May 1878-1969)
