If you look up the word "muchness" in any dictionary, the definition given will probably be something along these lines: "greatness, as in quantity, measure, or degree." (Thanks, Dictionary.com!) You also may see the word described as being "Archaic," and/or given some other notation to signify that it doesn't get a whole lot of use in 2018. That seems like a shame. Don't we all need to get a little more muchness out of life?
Hamlet, Shakespeare's melancholy prince of Denmark, opines that death is a "consummation devoutly to be wished," which is pretty darn morbid and depressing when you think about it. What if, on the other hand, good ol' Hambone had said the same thing about muchness? Now there's something worth wishing for, right? We can't think of anything that would not be improved by a higher degree of greatness.
