Definition
something that interferes with action or progress
  • I think she has: certain it is I lik'd her, And boarded her i' the wanton way of youth: She knew her distance, and did angle for me, Madding my eagerness with her restraint, As all impediments in fancy's course Are motives of more fancy; and, in fine, Her infinite cunning with her modern grace, Subdu'd me to her rate: she got the ring; And I had that which any inferior might At market-price have bought.
    5.3 — Act 5 Scene 3 — The same. A room in the COUNTESS'S palace (63% in)
