Comfort \Com"fort\, n. [OF. confort, fr. conforter.]
1. Assistance; relief; support. [Obs. except in the phrase
"aid and comfort." See 5 below.] --Shak.
[1913 Webster]

2. Encouragement; solace; consolation in trouble; also, that
which affords consolation.

(Rev. Ver.).

5. (Law) Unlawful support, countenance, or encouragement; as,

Syn: {Comfort}, {Consolation}.

Usage: Comfort has two meanings:

1. Strength and relief received under affliction;

2. Positive enjoyment, of a quiet, permanent nature, together
with the sources thereof; as, the comfort of love;
surrounded with comforts; but it is with the former only
that the word consolation is brought into comparison. As
thus compared, consolation points to some specific source
of relief for the afflicted mind; as, the consolations of
religion. Comfort supposes the relief to be afforded by
imparting positive enjoyment, as well as a diminution of
pain. "Consolation, or comfort, signifies some alleviation
to that pain to which it is not in our power to afford the
proper and adequate remedy; they imply rather an
augmentation of the power of bearing, than a diminution of
the burden." --Johnson.
[1913 Webster]


Comfort \Com"fort\, v. t. [imp. & p. p. {Comforted}; p. pr. &
vb. n. {Comforting.}] [F. conforter, fr. L. confortare to
strengthen much; con- fortis strong. See {Fort}.]
1. To make strong; to invigorate; to fortify; to corroborate.
[Obs.] --Wyclif.
[1913 Webster]

and confirm the same. --Hooker.

2. To assist or help; to aid. [Obs.]
[1913 Webster]

God comfort him in this necessity! --Shak.
[1913 Webster]

3. To impart strength and hope to; to encourage; to relieve;
to console; to cheer.
[1913 Webster]

Light excelleth in comforting the spirits of men.
--Bacon.
[1913 Webster]

That we may be able to comfort them that are in any
affliction. --2 Cor. i. 4
(Rev. Ver.).
[1913 Webster]

A perfect woman, nobly planned,
To warn, to comfort, and command. --Wordsworth.

Syn: To cheer; solace; console; revive; encourage; enliven;
invigorate; inspirit; gladden; recreate; exhilarate;
refresh; animate; confirm; strengthen.

Usage: {To Comfort}, {Console}, {Solace}. These verbs all
suppose some antecedent state of suffering or sorrow.
Console is confined to the act giving sympathetic
relief to the mind under affliction or sorrow, and
points to some definite source of that relief; as, the
presence of his friend consoled him; he was much
consoled by this intelligence. The act of consoling
commonly implies the inculcation of resignation.
Comfort points to relief afforded by the communication
of positive pleasure, hope, and strength, as well as
by the diminution of pain; as, "They brought the young
man alive, and were not a little comforted." --Acts
xx. 12. Solace is from L. solacium, which means
according to Dumesnil, consolation inwardly felt or
applied to the case of the sufferer. Hence, the verb
to solace denotes the using of things for the purpose
of affording relief under sorrow or suffering; as, to
solace one's self with reflections, with books, or
with active employments.
[1913 Webster]
