is this a real paragraph?
Kepler died in Regensburg in 1630, while on a journey from his home in Sagan to collect a debt. His grave was demolished within two years because of the Thirty Years War. Frail of body, but robust in mind and spirit, Kepler was scrupulously honest to the data.

Tricycle's Daily Dharma
What is a True Person?

Insight can’t be found in sutras, commentaries, verbal expression, or —isms. Liberation and awakened understanding can’t be found by devoting ourselves to the study of the Buddhist scriptures. This is like trying to find fresh water in dry bones. Returning to the present moment, using our clear mind which exists right here and now, we can be in touch with liberation and enlightenment, as well as with the Buddha and the patriarchs as living realities right in this moment. The person who has nothing to do is sovereign unto herself. She doesn’t need to put on airs or leave any trace behind.

The true person is an active participant, engaged in her environment while remaining unoppressed by it. Although all phenomena are going through the various appearances of birth, abiding, changing, and dying, the true person doesn’t become a victim of sadness, happiness, love, or hate. She lives in awareness as an ordinary person, whether standing, walking, lying down, or sitting. She doesn’t act a part, even the part of a great Zen master. This is what Master Linji means by “being sovereign wherever you are and using that place as your seat of awakening.”

magnanimous • \mag-NAN-uh-mus\ • adjective
1 : showing or suggesting a lofty and courageous spirit
*2 : showing or suggesting nobility of feeling and generosity of mind
Example Sentence:
Rather than gloat about her victory in the race, Michelle chose to be magnanimous and congratulated her opponents on their strong showings.
Did you know?
When you see "anima," "animus," or a similar formation in a word, it's an indicator of something alive, lively, or spirited. Something "animated" is full of life, for example, and an "animal" is a living, breathing thing. The Latin word "animus" means "soul" or "spirit." In "magnanimous," that "animus" is joined by Latin "magnus," meaning "great." Basically meaning "greatness of spirit," "magnanimity" is the opposite of pettiness. A truly magnanimous person can lose without complaining and win without gloating. Angry disputes can sometimes be resolved when one side makes a magnanimous gesture toward another.

*Indicates the sense illustrated in the example sentence.

The Word of the Day for January 09, 2010 is:
amicable • \AM-ih-kuh-bul\ • adjective
: characterized by friendly goodwill : peaceable
Example Sentence:
“About a million couples divorce each year in the United States, and most, like my ex and me, start out striving to keep the split amicable.” (Annie Finnigan, Family Circle, October 17, 2008)
Did you know?
"Amicable," which derives from Late Latin "amicabilis," meaning "friendly," is one of a set of English words used to suggest cordial relationships. "Amicable," "neighborly," "companionable," and "friendly" all mean marked by or exhibiting goodwill and an absence of antagonism. "Amicable" implies a state of peace and a desire on the part of the parties not to quarrel ("they maintained amicable relations"; "the amicable process of bargaining"). "Neighborly" implies a disposition to live on good terms with others, particularly those who are nearby, and to be helpful on principle ("neighborly concern"). "Companionable" suggests sociability and companionship ("a companionable dinner with friends"). "Friendly" stresses cordiality and often warmth or intimacy of personal relations ("a friendly correspondence").

In 1975, Bowie achieved his first major American crossover success with the number-one single "Fame", co-written with John Lennon,[9] and the hit album Young Americans, which the singer identified as "plastic soul".
