Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: MONOPOLY & more

My Word of the Day

MONOPOLY (MONO’POLY) n.s.[monopole, Fr.] exclusive privilege of selling any thing.

Dost thou call me fool, boy? —— All thy other titles hast thou given away; that thou wast born with. —— Lords and great men will not let me; if I had a monopoly on’t they would have part on’t. Shakesp. King Lear.

One of the most oppressive monopolies imaginable; all others can concern only something without us, but this fastens upon our nature, yea upon our reason. Go. of the Tongue.

Shakespeare rather writ happily than knowingly and justly; and Johnson, who by studying Horace, had been acquainted with the rules, yet seemed to envy to posterity that knowledge, and to make a monopoly of his learning. Dryden’s Juv.

Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: OVERTAKE & more

My Word of the Day

To OVERTAKE (OVERTA’KE) v.a.[over and take.]1. To catch any thing by pursuit; to come up to something going before.

We durst not continue longer so near her confines, lest her plagues might suddenly overtake us before we did cease to be partakers with her sins. Hooker.

If I had given you this at over-night, She might have been o’ertaken; and yet she writes Pursuit would be but vain. Shakespeare.

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.

If a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual restore such an one in the spirit of meekness. Bible Gal.vi. 1.

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.
