My Word of the Day

QUINTESSENCE (QUINTE’SSENCE) n.s.[quinta essentia, Lat.]1. A fifth being.

From their gross matter she abstracts the forms, And draws a kind of quintessence from things. Davies.

The ethereal quintessence of heav’n Flew upward, spirited with various forms, That rowl’d orbicular, and turn’d to stars. Milton.

They made fire, air, earth, and water, to be the four elements, of which all earthly things were compounded, and supposed the heavens to be a quintessence or fifth sort of body distinct from all these. Watts’s Logick.2. An extract from any thing, containing all its virtues in a small quantity.

To me what is this quintessence of dust? man delights not me, nor woman neither. Shakesp. Hamlet.

Who can in memory, or wit, or will, Or air, or fire, or earth, or water find. What alchymist can draw, with all his skill, The quintessence of these out of the mind. Davies.

For I am a very dead thing, In whom love wrought new alchymy, For by his art he did express A quintessence even from nothingness, From dull privations and lean emptiness. Donne.

Let there be light! said God; and forthwith light Ethereal, first of things, quintessence pure, Sprung from the deep. Milton’s Paradise Lost, b. vii.

When the supreme faculties move regularly, the inferior passions and affections following, there arises a serenity and complacency upon the whole soul, infinitely beyond the greatest bodily pleasures, the highest quintessence and elixir of worldly delights. South’s Sermons.

Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: SLOPE & more

My Word of the Day

To SLOPE (SLOPE) v.a.[from the adjective.]To form to obliquity or declivity; to direct obliquely.

Though bladed corn be lodg’d, and trees blown down, Though palaces and pyramids do slope Their heads to their foundations. Shakesp. Macbeth.

On each hand the flames Driv’n backward slope their pointing spires, and rowl’d In billows, leave i’ th’ midst a horrid vale. Milt. Par. Lost.

The star, that rose at evening bright, Toward heav’n’s descent had slop’d his westering wheel. Milt.

All night I slept, oblivious of my pain;Aurora dawn’d, and Phœbus shin’d in vain:Nor ’till oblique he slop’d his evening ray, Had Somnus dry’d the balmy dews away. Pope’s Odyssey.

It is the lesser blot, modesty finds, Women to change their shapes than men their minds. Shakespeare’s Two Gentlemen of Verona.

The mountains, and higher parts of the earth, grow lesser and lesser from age to age: sometimes the roots of them are weakened by subterraneous fires, and sometimes tumbled by earthquakes into those caverns that are under them. Burnet’s Theory of the Earth.

Cain, after the murder of his brother, cries out, Every man that findeth me shall slay me. By the same reason may a man, in the state of nature, punish the lesser breaches of that law. Locke.
