Please help me to correct the mistakes in this website,
specially in connection with Etymology - Thank You
Etymology is my hobby and I do interviews with "ordinary" people, ask, inquire, look, search, read. Therefore there are bound to be some, perhaps many- mistakes; however, my point of view is that Etymology is so very important that a few of us have to start to collect "words of depth" from around our beautiful planet and to share this knowledge, even if incomplete, and sometimes incorrect.

"A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver."
Proverbs 25:11, The Bible
" Language is the house of being."
" Every word is magical."
" The real centre of knowledge is inner consciousness."
" Intercultural dialogue is the main force behind the spiritual development of mankind."
" Shall I tell you what knowledge is? It is to know what one knows and what one does not know."
"Only through respect of the word will man be educated towards maturity."
