Definition
a small amount of something; or something resembling (looking like) something else
  • Content thee, gentle coz, let him alone, He bears him like a portly gentleman; And, to say truth, Verona brags of him To be a virtuous and well-govern'd youth: I would not for the wealth of all the town Here in my house do him disparagement: Therefore be patient, take no note of him,— It is my will; the which if thou respect, Show a fair presence and put off these frowns, An ill-beseeming semblance for a feast.
    1.5 — Act 1 Scene 5 — A Hall in Capulet's House (46% in)
