MORTAR (MO’RTAR) n.s.[mortarium, Lat. mortier, Fr.]1. A strong vessel in which materials are broken by being pounded with a pestle.

My Word of the Day

To PRESERVE (PRESE’RVE) v.a.[præservo, low Latin; preserver, Fr.]1. To save; to defend from destruction or any evil; to keep.

The Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom. Bible2 Tim.iv. 18.

God sent me to preserve you a posterity, and save your lives. Bible Gen.xlv. 7.

She shall lead me soberly in my doings, and preserve me in her power. Bible Wisdomix. II.

He did too frequently gratify their unjustifiable designs, a guilt all men, who are obnoxious, are liable to, and can hardly preserve themselves from. Clarendon.

We can preserve unhurt our minds. Milton.

To be indifferent, which of two opinions is true, is the right temper of the mind, that preserves it from being imposed on, till it has done its best to find the truth. Locke.

Every petty prince in Germany must be intreated to preserve the queen of Great Britain upon her throne. Swift.2. To season fruits and other vegetables with sugar and in other proper pickles: as, to preserve plumbs, walnuts, and cucumbers.Recent references to Samuel Johnson on Twitter
