     Note: Liberal has of, sometimes with, before the thing
           bestowed, in before a word signifying action, and to
           before a person or object on which anything is
           bestowed; as, to be liberal of praise or censure;

     {The liberal arts}. See under {Art}.
     {Liberal education}, education that enlarges and disciplines
        the mind and makes it master of its own powers,
        irrespective of the particular business or profession one
        may follow.
        [1913 Webster]
     Syn: Generous; bountiful; munificent; beneficent; ample;
          large; profuse; free.
     Usage: {Liberal}, {Generous}. Liberal is freeborn, and
            generous is highborn. The former is opposed to the
            ordinary feelings of a servile state, and implies
            largeness of spirit in giving, judging, acting, etc.
            The latter expresses that nobleness of soul which is
            peculiarly appropriate to those of high rank, -- a
            spirit that goes out of self, and finds its enjoyment
            in consulting the feelings and happiness of others.
            Generosity is measured by the extent of the sacrifices
            it makes; liberality, by the warmth of feeling which
            it manifests.
            [1913 Webster]
