Scorn is a feeling of contempt, disdain, or despisement for something or somebody.
- So let him stand, through ages yet unborn,
Fix'd statue on the pedestal of Scorn.
- Lord Byron, Curse of Minerva (1811_, line 206.
- He will laugh thee to scorn.
- Ecclesiasticus, XIII. 7.
- He hears
On all sides, from innumerable tongues
A dismal universal hiss, the sound
Of public scorn.
- A drop of patience: but, alas, to make me
A fixed figure, for the time of scorn
To point his slow unmoving finger at!
