INFINITE (_comparative_ MORE INFINITE, _superlative_ MOST INFINITE) * Indefinably large, countlessly great; immense. [from 14th c.] * 1603, John Florio, translating Michel de Montaigne, _Essays_, I.40: The number is so INFINITE, that verily it would be an easier matter for me to reckon up those that have feared the same. * (Can we date this quote?) H. Brooke Whatever is finite, as finite, will admit of no comparative relation with infinity; for whatever is less than INFINITE is still infinitely distant from infinity; and lower than infinite distance the lowest or least cannot sink. * (Can we date this quote?) Marlowe INFINITE riches in a little room * (Can we date this quote?) Milton which INFINITE calamity shall cause to human life * Boundless, endless, without end or limits; innumerable. [from 15th c.] * Bible, Psalms cxlvii. 5 Great is our Lord, and of great power; his understanding is INFINITE. * With plural noun: infinitely many. [from 15th c.] * 2012, Helen Donelan, ‎Karen Kear, ‎Magnus Ramage, _Online Communication and Collaboration: A Reader_ Huxley's theory says that if you provide INFINITE monkeys with infinite typewriters, some monkey somewhere will eventually create a masterpiece – a play by Shakespeare, a Platonic dialogue, or an economic treatise by Adam Smith. * (mathematics) Greater than any positive quantity or magnitude; limitless. [from 17th c.] * (set theory, of a set) Having infinitely many elements. * For any INFINITE set, there is a 1-1 correspondence between it and at least one of its proper subsets. For example, there is a 1-1 correspondence between the set of natural numbers and the set of squares of natural numbers, which is a proper subset of the set of natural numbers. * (grammar) Not limited by person or number. [from 19th c.] * (music) Capable of endless repetition; said of certain forms of the canon, also called perpetual fugues, constructed so that their ends lead to their beginnings. (Can we find and add a quotation of Moore (Encyc. of Music) to this entry?) USAGE NOTES Although the term is incomparable in the precise sense, it can be comparable both in mathematics and set theory to compare different degrees of infinity, and informally to denote yet a larger thing.
