At first the two nouns referred specifically to God, alluding to the belief that a divine force was responsible for all events. The current usage refers only to human beings. [Second half of 1800s]

I have found a piece in routine. I’m grasping it. I like it. I think I need it. New art projects happening inside my head. I think good things will happen. I am hopeful.
