Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: RUB & more

My Word of the Day

RUB (RUB) n.s.[from the verb.]1. Collision; hindrance; obstruction.

The breath of what I mean to speak Shall blow each dust, each straw, each little rub Out of the path, which shall directly lead Thy foot to England’s throne. Shakesp. King John.

Now every rub is smoothed in our way. Shakesp.

Those you make friends, And give your hearts to, when they once perceive The least rub in your fortunes, fall away. Shakesp.

Upon this rub, the English embassadors thought fit to demur, and sent to receive directions. Hayward.

He expounds the giddy wonder Of my weary steps, and under Spreads a path clear as the day, Where no churlish rub says nay. Crashaw.

He that once sins, like him that slides on ice, Goes swiftly down the slippery ways of vice;Though conscience checks him, yet those rubs gone o’er, He slides on smoothly, and looks back no more. Dryden.

An hereditary right is to be preferred before election; because the government is so disposed, that it almost executes itself: and upon the death of a prince, the administration goes on without any rub or interruption. Swift. 2. Frication; act of rubbing.3. Inequality of ground, that hinders the motion of a bowl.

We’ll play at bowls. —— ’Twill make me think the world is full of rubs, And that my fortune runs against the bias. Shakesp.4. Difficulty; cause of uneasiness.

To sleep; perchance to dream; ay, there’s the rub. Sha.

Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: PERCEIVABLE & more

My Word of the Day

PERCEIVABLE (PERCEI’VABLE) adj.[from perceive.]Perceptible; such as falls under perception.

The body, though it really moves, yet not changing perceivable distance with some other bodies, as fast as the ideas of our own minds will follow one another, seems to stand still; as the hands of clocks. Locke.

That which we perceive when we see figure, as perceivable by sight, is nothing but the termination of colour. Locke.

Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: THROTTLE & more

My Word of the Day

To THROTTLE (THRO’TTLE) v.a.[from the noun.]To choak; to suffocate; to kill by stopping the breath.

I have seen them shiver and look pale, Make periods in the midst of sentences, Throttle their practis’d accents in their fears, And, in conclusion, dumbly have broke off. Shakespeare.

As when Antæus in Irassa strove With Jove’s Alcides, and oft foil’d still rose, Receiving from his mother earth new strength, Fresh from his fall and fiercer grapple join’d, Throttled at length in th’ air, expir’d and fell. Milton.

His throat half throttl’d with corrupted phlegm, And breathing through his jaws a belching steam. Dryden.

The throttling quinsey ’tis my star appoints, And rheumatism I send to rack the joints. Dryden.

Throttle thyself with an ell of strong tape, For thou hast not a groat to attone for a rape. Swift.
