Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 482
agoraphobia, frowst, arbitrary, dolorous
“Can one suffer from agoraphobia in Spaceland?” and “Is Flatland synonymous with a frowst in a cabin?” and “Seeing a straight line as a penny could or could not be a dolorous vision?” and what did Edwin Abbott mean to say when he said (in one of the passages of his Flatland) “It seemed intolerable that I should endure existence subject to the arbitrary visitations of a Magician who could thus play tricks with one's very stomach”? and the questions kept on falling as a torrential summer rain, as if wanting to urge us, to warm us towards perceiving a fourth dimension, then another, and further still.
