Entry: sedulously (adj.)

In context: "'I cultivate it assiduously.  I do special gratitude exercises at night up there in the room.  Gratitude-Ups, you could call them.  Ask Randy over there if I don't do them like clockwork.  Diligently.  Seduously."

Definition2. Of actions: Constant, persistent.

Other:  I always hear sedition as a root here, but that's not correct.  From the etymology:

The Latin word appears to have been evolved from the adv. sēdulō sincerely, honestly (hence diligently, assiduously), repr. Old Latin sē dolō without guile (see se- prefix).
