WORD OF THE DAY! 12/19/14!


fury [fyoor-ee]
noun
1. Unrestrained or violent anger, rage, passion, etc.
2. Violence; ferocity; brutality.
3. Classical mythology. (furies) The daughters of Gaea who punished crimes at the instigation of victims, known to the greek as Erinyes and the romans as Furiae.

EX.
"She should have died hereafter.
There would have been a time for such a word.
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing."

-William Shakespeare's Macbeth
