Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: RING & more

My Word of the Day

To RING (RING) v.a. pret. and part. pass. rung.[hringan, Saxon.]1. To strike bells or any other sonorous body, so as to make it sound.

I ’gin to be aweary of the sun;Ring the alarum bell. Shakesp. Macbeth.2.[From ring.]To encircle.

Talbot, Who, ring’d about with bold adversity, Cries out for noble York and Somerset. Shakesp. Hen. VI. 3. To fit with rings.

Death, death; oh amiable lovely death!Thou odoriferous stench, sound rotteness, Arise forth from thy couch of lasting night, Thou hate and terrour to prosperity, And I will kiss thy detestable bones, And put my eye-balls in thy vaulty brows, And ring these fingers with thy houshold worms. Shakesp.4. To restrain a hog by a ring in his nose.

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.

Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: UNFINISHED & more

My Word of the Day

UNFINISHED [only in 1755 edition] (UNFI’NISHED) adj. Incomplete; not brought to an end; not brought to perfection; imperfect; wanting the last hand.

It is for that such outward ornament Was lavish’d on their sex, that inward gifts Were left for haste unfinish’d. Milton.

I dedicate to you a very unfinished piece. Dryden.

His hasty hand left his pictures so unfinished, that the beauty in the picture faded sooner than in the person after whom it was drawn. Spectator, No. 83.

This collection contains not only such pieces as come under our review, but many others, even unfinished. Swift.
