I just looked them up...
pithy- means something like concise, incisive, laconic(whatever that is)
glib- is something like ready witted, eloquent, articulate
Hope that helped...
have a nice day
I'm a random person that came by here, and I actually used pithy earlier, as well as knowing what it means and liking its meaning.
Laconic would mean something like austere or brutally sparing or bare in style. It has something to do with Sparta, I think it was their citys plain or something, anyhow that is another word it'd be linked with.
The Spartan etymology is thus: Sparta was in the region of Laconia. It was very well-defended by mountains and such, and the Spartans didn't really move from the polis (=, roughly, city and surrounding lands) at all. They were very, as it were, Laconic. Ooh.
