drūwis

Definition from Dictionary, a free dictionary
To fall in love is easy, even to remain in it is not difficult; our human loneliness is cause enough. But is a hard quest worth making to find a comrade through whose steady presence one becomes steadily the person one desires to be.

Pronunciation

Etymology

From the Proto-Indo-European root *deru-, *dreu- (firm, solid, steadfast); compare trú.

Noun

drūwis

  1. belief, faith, religion

Usage notes

The word is customarily begun with a majuscule letter (see Drūwis) in the formal names of religions, out of respect, although this rule is by no means binding : Jūdiskas Drūwis - "the Jewish Faith"; Krikstāniskas Drūwis - "the Christian Faith".
