Daily Lesson 9

Aught and Naught
Rather than the modern and pedestrian "anything" and "nothing", use
"aught" and "naught".
     "Aught that thou may givest will be of aid."
     "Is there aught I may fetch you, milady?"
     "Gramercy, milord, there is naught I require."
     "Let them strive; 'twill avail them naught."

Shakespearian Word/Phrase of the Day:
Dissemble - Deceive or lie.
     "In truth, methinks the fellow doth dissemble."

Nunc est bibendum.
Politicians prefer unarmed peasants.
