Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: PREPARE & more

My Word of the Day

To PREPARE (PREPA’RE) v.n.1. To take previous measures.

Efficacy is a power of speech, which represents to our minds the lively ideas of things so truly, as if we saw them with our eyes; as Dido preparing to kill herself. Peacham.2. To make every thing ready; to put things in order.

Go in, sirrah, bid them prepare for dinner. Shakesp.

The long-suffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing. Bible1 Peteriii. 2.3. To make one’s self ready; to put himself in a state of expectation.
