Impeccability

Was the word of the day today.

The spirit of a warrior is not geared to indulging and complaining, nor is it geared to winning or losing. The spirit of a warrior is geared only to struggle, and every struggle is a warrior's last battle on earth. Thus the outcome matters very little to him. In his last battle on earth a warrior lets his spirit flow free and clear. And as he wages his battle, knowing that his intent is impeccable, a warrior laughs and laughs.

My online Webster's has it as a noun with entries generally including 'flawless' and 'not capable of sinning or liable to sin'. Who knew? This word is right in there with another that our neighbor used to use a lot: 'exquisite',e.g., 'exquisite ride you have there'. One of the quotes on 'immpecability' from Mother Teresa reminded me of this woman: http://thebloggess.com/. Really funny lady and blog.

Yeah, I think the difference is that fine line between 'not capable of' and 'not wanting to'. An exquisite example to be sure. The Bloggess kicks ass.
