Deserve, I wonder about this word. So I have a basic idea of what it means but the official definition and where it originated I do not know so here is what I found:



Pronunciation: (di-zûrv'), [key]
—v., -served, -serv•ing.

to merit, be qualified for, or have a claim to (reward, assistance, punishment, etc.) because of actions, qualities, or situation: to deserve exile; to deserve charity; a theory that deserves consideration.

to be worthy of, qualified for, or have a claim to reward, punishment, recompense, etc.: to reward him as he deserves; an idea deserving of study.

From the Merriam-Webster online

Etymology: Middle English, from Anglo-French deservir, from Latin deservire to devote oneself to, from de- + servire to serve
Date: 13th century

intransitive verb

— de·serv·er noun

You may be wondering why I am thinking of this word now, it was just a thought I had when a song about love came on. I just thought I would put it on here and share a little knowledge with you all. By the way the song was by Howard Jones "What is Love?" It is on my blog playlist I really like this song it just made me start thinking about some stuff. Here are the lyrics to that song just in case you couldn't catch em :

I love you whether or not you love me
I love you even if you think that I don't
Sometimes I find you doubt my love for you, but I don't mind
Why should I mind, why should I mind

What is love anyway, does anybody love anybody anyway
What is love anyway, does anybody love anybody anyway

Can anybody love anyone so much that they will never fear
Never worry never be sad
The answer is they cannot love this much nobody can
This is why I don't mind you doubting

And maybe love is letting people be just what they want to be
The door always must be left unlocked
To love when circumstance may lead someone away from you
And not to spend the time just doubting

I Love 80ies music TTYL :O)
