Definition
reluctant or unwilling to do something
  • Your brother is but young and tender; and, for your love, I would be loath to foil him, as I must, for my own honour, if he come in: therefore, out of my love to you, I came hither to acquaint you withal; that either you might stay him from his intendment, or brook such disgrace well as he shall run into; in that it is thing of his own search, and altogether against my will.
    1.1 — Act 1 Scene 1 — An Orchard near OLIVER'S house (75% in)
