pithy

“Pithy” is a word that doesn’t sound anything like it means. I thought it meant “pathetic” and “weak”. Here’s dictionary.com’s definition:

pith
y
   [pith-ee]
adjective, pith
i
er, pith
i
est.
1. brief, forceful, and meaningful in expression; full of vigor, substance, or meaning; terse; forcible: a pithy observation.
