Definition
words falsely spoken that damage the reputation of another
  • Octavius, I have seen more days than you: And, though we lay these honors on this man, To ease ourselves of divers slanderous loads, He shall but bear them as the ass bears gold, To groan and sweat under the business, Either led or driven, as we point the way; And having brought our treasure where we will, Then take we down his load and turn him off, Like to the empty ass, to shake his ears And graze in commons.
    4.1 — Act 4 Scene 1 — Rome. A room in Antony's house (46% in)
