Yesterday’s word

The word sophrosyne is “moderation; discretion; prudence”

First usage

Our word is another one that didn’t have information about when it came into English

Background / Comments

Our word is a great one to sprinkle into conversation; with the idea of being sound of mind or having discretion, it seem like a good word to know. It comes from the Greek word sōphrosýnē (soundness of mind; prudence; temperance), which is derived from sṓphrōn (prudence).
