from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia

  • n. The character of being ultroneous; spontaneity.


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • I would certainly make it against law, as it plainly is against nature, for cousins-german to marry; and if we could pair ourselves as we pair our live stock, and give ear to the teaching of an enlightened zo├Ânomy, we might soon drive many of our fellest diseases out of our breed; but the law of personality, of ultroneousness, of free will, that which in a great measure makes us what we are, steps in and forbids anything but the convincement and force of reason.
