<strong>Word to the Wise: Dour
</strong>
<strong>”Dour” </strong>(DOO-ur) – From the Latin for “hard” – means, harsh, sullen, or inflexible.

Example (as used by Tim Hilton in John Ruskin: The Later Years): “John James Ruskin’s dinner table was far too lively for the<strong> dour </strong>John La Touche.”
