Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: NEEDLESS & more

My Word of the Day

NEEDLESS (NEE’DLESS) adj.[from need.]1. Unnecessary; not requisite.

Their exception against easiness, as if that did nourish ignorance, proceedeth altogether of a needless jealousy. Hooker.

This sudden stab of rancour I misdoubt;Pray God, I say, I prove a needless coward. Shak. R. III.

Would not these be great and needless abatements of their happiness, if it were confined within the compass of this life only. Atterbury.

Money we either lock up in chests, or waste it in needless and ridiculous expences upon ourselves, whilst the poor and the distressed want it for necessary uses. Law.2. Not wanting. Out of use.

For his weeping in the needless stream, Poor dear, quoth he, thou mak’st a testament, As worldlings do, giving thy sum of more To that which had too much. Shakesp. As you Like it.
