To

(1) (to rhyme with do). To be compared to; comparable to. Thus, Sir Thomas Browne (Religio Medici) says: “There is no torture to the rack of a disease” (p. 69, 20); and again, “No reproach to the scandal of a story.” And Shakespeare says:—

“There is no woe to his correction,

Nor to his service no such joy on earth.”


Two Gentlemen of Verona, ii. 4.
