Hath the church of Christ, from the first beginning, by a secret universal instinct of God's good spirit, always tied itself to end neither sermon, nor almost any speech of moment, which hath concerned matters of God, without some special words of honour and glory to the Trinity which we all adore; and is the like conclusion of psalms become now, at length, an eyesore, or a galling to the ears that hear it? Hooker, b. v.
Fy, doff this habit; shame to your estate,
And eyesore to our solemn festival. Shak. Tam. of the Shrew.
As soon as the two lords came thither they covered, to the trouble of the other; but having presently to speak, they were quickly freed from that eyesore. Clarendon, b. viii.
Mordecai was an eyesore to Haman. L'Estrange, Fable 38.
He's the best piece of man's flesh in the market; not an eyesore in his whole body. Dryden's Don Sebastian.
