I shall see The winged vengeance overtake such children. Shakesp.

The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil. Bible Ex.xv. 9.

My soul, more earnestly releas’d, Will out-strip hers, as bullets flown before A later bullet may o’ertake, the powder being more. Donne.

To thy wishes move a speedy pace, Or death will soon o’ertake thee in the chace. Dryden.

How must he tremble for fear vengeance should overtake him, before he has made his peace with God. Rogers.2. To take by surprize.

Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: LODGE & more

My Word of the Day

LODGE (LODGE) n.s.[logis, French.]1. A small house in a park or forest.

He brake up his court, and retired himself, his wife and children, into a certain forest thereby, which he calleth his desart, wherein he hath built two fine lodges. Sidney.

I found him as melancholy as a lodge in a warren. Shak.

He and his lady both are at the lodge, Upon the north side of this pleasant chace. Shakespeare.

Thus at their shady lodge arriv’d, both stood, Both turn’d, and under open sky ador’d The God that made both sky, air, earth. Milton.

Whenever I am turned out, my lodge descends upon a low-spirited family. Swift.2. Any small house; as, the porter’s lodge.
