This week's theme: adjectives.
habile (HAB-il) adjective
Having general ability; skillful.
[From Latin habilis (able), from habere (to have or to hold). Ultimately from the Indo-European root ghabh- (to give or to receive) that is also the source of give, gift, able, habit, prohibit, due, and duty.]
"Such rude and prolonged treatment would almost certainly result in the
unwelcome appearance of an unappetizing assortment of molds that present
a formidable challenge to even the most habile of our local winemakers."
As a well spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death. -Leonardo da Vinci, painter, engineer, musician, and scientist (1452-1519)
