Jade \Jade\, v. t. [imp. & p. p. Jaded; p. pr. & vb. n. Jading.] [1913 Webster] 1. To treat like a jade; to spurn. [Obs.] --Shak. [1913 Webster] 2. To make ridiculous and contemptible. [Obs.] [1913 Webster] I do now fool myself, to let imagination jade me. --Shak. [1913 Webster] 3. To exhaust by overdriving or long-continued labor of any kind; to tire, make dull, or wear out by severe or tedious tasks; to harass. [1913 Webster] The mind, once jaded by an attempt above its power, . . . checks at any vigorous undertaking ever after. --Locke. Syn: To fatigue; tire; weary; harass. Usage: To Jade, Fatigue, Tire, Weary. Fatigue is the generic term; tire denotes fatigue which wastes the strength; weary implies that a person is worn out by exertion; jade refers to the weariness created by a long and steady repetition of the same act or effort. A little exertion will tire a child or a weak person; a severe or protracted task wearies equally the body and the mind; the most powerful horse becomes jaded on a long journey by a continual straining of the same muscles. Wearied with labor of body or mind; tired of work, tired out by importunities; jaded by incessant attention to business. [1913 Webster]
