The Wednesday Word - pusillanimous

Best Blogger Tips

Wednesday 12 August 2009

Today's Wednesday Word is pusillanimous. It comes from the latin pusillus which means very small and animus which means spirit. It means lacking in courage, or basically having no guts.

Here is my quote for it:

"He worked under a pusillanimous boss, who could barely decide what to eat at lunch, let alone the tough decisions needed to see out the global financial crisis."
