Having beers with Shakespeare would be extraordinary.
- Sir Nathaniel. I praise God for you, sir: your reasons
- at dinner have been sharp and sententious;
- pleasant without scurrility, witty without affection,
- audacious without impudency, learned without opinion,
- and strange without heresy. I did converse this quondam
- day with a companion of the king's, who is intituled, nomi-
- nated, or called, Don Adriano de Armado.
- Holofernes. Novi hominem tanquam te: his humour
- is lofty, his discourse peremptory, his tongue filed,
- his eye ambitious, his gait majestical, and his general
- behavior vain, ridiculous, and thrasonical. He is
- too picked, too spruce, too affected, too odd, as it
- were, too peregrinate, as I may call it.
- Sir Nathaniel. A most singular and choice epithet.
-William Shakespeare, Love's Labour's Lost: Act Five, Scene 1
thrasonical is a new one for me. According to our friends at Dictionary.com it means boastful; vainglorious.
