"Paradise, that magic word, can touch mysterious chords within us."
—Rev. Henry Woodward, "The Character of God: A Sermon," The Church of England Magazine, 1846

In other news, the Weiser Books outpost at Twitter has been highlighting tidbits from our Magic Words: A Dictionary. For example:
"Foken Falk ... folkloric magic words for transformation into a bird." Tweet!
"Zauberwort ... a German word meaning 'magic formula.'" And I thought a Zauberwort was a sausage!!

I find the word 'paradise' to be especially magical when the word 'tropical' is placed in front of it.
