comment Idiom help: If beauty is her Yin, then intelligence is her Yang
To downvoters: This is a useful answer in that the quotation mentions “apparently opposite or contrary forces [that] are actually complementary”, as asked about in the question, so IMO there's no valid reason to downvote it. (That it's lame – ie consists only of a long quotation, half of which is irrelevant – is not a valid reason for downvoting.)

comment How did 'provide' evolve to mean 'stipulate in a document'?
While vols 1-8 of OED1 are 100 or more years old, vols 9 and 10 (Si–Z) are 85 to 95 years old. The Supplement (vol 11, 1933) makes OED1 up to date through about 1933. [BTW, all it's needs no ' ]

comment Word describing a person's momentary pleasure, but overall discord
@AlexHenrie, I corrected the spelling of equanimity and at the same time made minor adjustments. However, I don't understand what you mean by the sequence “Trichotillomania [1] here [2] there” so I was unable to change that sequence to something coherent.
