Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: PRACTICK & more

My Word of the Day

PRACTICK (PRA’CTICK) adj.[pqajsij practicus, Lat. pratique, Fr.]1. Relating to action; not merely theoretical.

When he speaks, The air, a charter’d libertine, is still;And the mute wonder lurketh in men’s ears, To steal his sweet and honied sentences;So that the act and practick part of life Must be the mistress to this theorick. Shakesp.

Whilst they contend for speculative truth, they, by mutual calumnies, forfeit the practick. Gov. of the Tongue.

True piety without cessation tost By theories, the practick part is lost. Denham.2. In Spenser it seems to signify, sly; artful.

She used hath the practick pain Of this false footman, cloaked with simpleness. F. Queen.

Thereto his subtile engines he doth bend, His practick wit, and his fair filed tongue, With thousand other sleights. Fairy Queen.

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.
