    2. An act of an open enemy; a hostile deed; especially in the plural, acts of warfare; attacks of an enemy.

    "We have showed ourselves generous adversaries . . . and have carried on even our hostilities with humanity." -- Atterbury.

There can be no knowledge without emotion. We may be aware of a truth, yet until we have felt its force, it is not ours. To the cognition of the brain must be added the experience of the soul.

Arnold Bennett
