What is lord?

Lord

Lord is a deferential appellation for a person or deity who has authority, control, or power over others; a master, chief, or ruler. In only a few cases is "lord" a substantive title in itself, most commonly that of the Lord of the Manor and certain vestigial titles from the age of feudalism such as Lord of Mann, in other cases it is a generic term applied, for example, to persons who hold a title of the peerage or persons entitled to courtesy titles, or to refer to a group or body of peers.

Famous quotes containing the word lord:

    Where is there such an one who has not a thousand times been struck with a sort of infidel idea, that whatever other worlds God may be Lord of, he is not the Lord of this; for else this world would seem to give the lie to Him; so utterly repugnant seem its ways to the instinctively known ways of Heaven.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    But see, the Virgin blest
    Hath laid her Babe to rest:
    Time is our tedious song should here have ending;
    Heaven’s youngest teemed star,
    Hath fixed her polished car,
    Her sleeping Lord with handmaid lamp attending;
    And all about the courtly stable,
    Bright-harnessed angels sit in order serviceable.
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    As Samuel grew up, the LORD was with him and let none of his words fall to the ground.
    Bible: Hebrew, 1 Samuel 3:19.
