Read what Senator Hoar says about

DANIEL WEBSTER Groping for Synonyms : "He had a singular habit, which made it wearisome to listen to his ordinary speech, of groping after the most suitable word, and trying one SYNONYM after another till he got that which suited him best. 'Why is it, Mr. Chairman, that there has gathered, congregated, come together here, this great number of inhabitants, dwellers, that these roads, avenues, routes of travel, highways, converge, meet, come together here? Is it not because we have here a sufficient, ample, safe, secure, convenient, commodious, port, harbor, haven?' Of course, when the speech came to be printed all the SYNONYMS but the best one would be left out.

Synonyms and Antonyms : MYTHOLOGY – The Heathen Deities and other Fabulons Persons of Greek and Roman History. FAMILIAR ALLU'SIONS – Words and Phrases, Persons, Places, Pictures, Buildings, Streets and
