  Will \Will\, n. [OE. wille, AS. willa; akin to OFries. willa,
     OS. willeo, willio, D. wil, G. wille, Icel. vili, Dan.
     villie, Sw. vilja, Goth wilja. See {Will}, v.]
     [1913 Webster]
     1. The power of choosing; the faculty or endowment of the
        soul by which it is capable of choosing; the faculty or
        power of the mind by which we decide to do or not to do;
        the power or faculty of preferring or selecting one of two
        or more objects.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              It is necessary to form a distinct notion of what is
              meant by the word "volition" in order to understand
              the import of the word will, for this last word
              expresses the power of mind of which "volition" is
              the act.                              --Stewart.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              Will is an ambiguous word, being sometimes put for
              the faculty of willing; sometimes for the act of
              that faculty, besides [having] other meanings. But
              "volition" always signifies the act of willing, and
              nothing else.                         --Reid.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              Appetite is the will's solicitor, and the will is
              appetite's controller; what we covet according to
              the one, by the other we often reject. --Hooker.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              The will is plainly that by which the mind chooses
              anything.                             --J. Edwards.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     2. The choice which is made; a determination or preference
        which results from the act or exercise of the power of
        choice; a volition.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              The word "will," however, is not always used in this
              its proper acceptation, but is frequently
              substituted for "volition", as when I say that my
              hand mover in obedience to my will.   --Stewart.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     3. The choice or determination of one who has authority; a
        decree; a command; discretionary pleasure.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              Thy will be done.                     --Matt. vi.
                                                    10.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              Our prayers should be according to the will of God.
                                                    --Law.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     4. Strong wish or inclination; desire; purpose.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: "Inclination is another word with which will is
           frequently confounded. Thus, when the apothecary says,
           in Romeo and Juliet, 
           [1913 Webster]
  
                 My poverty, but not my will, consents; . . .
                 Put this in any liquid thing you will,
                 And drink it off.
           [1913 Webster] the word will is plainly used as,
           synonymous with inclination; not in the strict logical
           sense, as the immediate antecedent of action. It is
           with the same latitude that the word is used in common
           conversation, when we speak of doing a thing which duty
           prescribes, against one's own will; or when we speak of
           doing a thing willingly or unwillingly." --Stewart.
           [1913 Webster]
  
     5. That which is strongly wished or desired.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              What's your will, good friar?         --Shak.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              The mariner hath his will.            --Coleridge.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     6. Arbitrary disposal; power to control, dispose, or
        determine.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies.
                                                    --Ps. xxvii.
                                                    12.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     7. (Law) The legal declaration of a person's mind as to the
        manner in which he would have his property or estate
        disposed of after his death; the written instrument,
        legally executed, by which a man makes disposition of his
        estate, to take effect after his death; testament; devise.
        See the Note under {Testament}, 1.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: Wills are written or nuncupative, that is, oral. See
           {Nuncupative will}, under {Nuncupative}.
           [1913 Webster]
  
     {At will} (Law), at pleasure. To hold an estate at the will
        of another, is to enjoy the possession at his pleasure,
        and be liable to be ousted at any time by the lessor or
        proprietor. An estate at will is at the will of both
        parties.
  
     {Good will}. See under {Good}.
  
     {Ill will}, enmity; unfriendliness; malevolence.

     will (Obs. I wol), thou wilt, he will (Obs. he wol); we, ye,
     they will.] [OE. willen, imp. wolde; akin to OS. willan,
     OFries. willa, D. willen, G. wollen, OHG. wollan, wellan,
     Icel. & Sw. vilja, Dan. ville, Goth. wiljan, OSlav. voliti,
     L. velle to wish, volo I wish; cf. Skr. v[.r] to choose, to
     prefer. Cf. {Voluntary}, {Welcome}, {Well}, adv.]
     [1913 Webster]
     1. To wish; to desire; to incline to have.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              A wife as of herself no thing ne sholde [should]
              Wille in effect, but as her husband wolde [would].
                                                    --Chaucer.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              Caleb said unto her, What will thou ? --Judg. i. 14.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              They would none of my counsel.        --Prov. i. 30.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     2. As an auxiliary, will is used to denote futurity dependent
        on the verb. Thus, in first person, "I will" denotes
        willingness, consent, promise; and when "will" is
        emphasized, it denotes determination or fixed purpose; as,
        I will go if you wish; I will go at all hazards. In the
        second and third persons, the idea of distinct volition,
        wish, or purpose is evanescent, and simple certainty is
        appropriately expressed; as, "You will go," or "He will
        go," describes a future event as a fact only. To emphasize
        will denotes (according to the tone or context) certain
        futurity or fixed determination.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: Will, auxiliary, may be used elliptically for will go.
           "I'll to her lodgings." --Marlowe.
           [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: As in shall (which see), the second and third persons
           may be virtually converted into the first, either by
           question or indirect statement, so as to receive the
           meaning which belongs to will in that person; thus,
           "Will you go?" (answer, "I will go") asks assent,
           requests, etc.; while "Will he go?" simply inquires
           concerning futurity; thus, also,"He says or thinks he
           will go," "You say or think you will go," both signify
           willingness or consent.
           [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: Would, as the preterit of will, is chiefly employed in
           conditional, subjunctive, or optative senses; as, he
           would go if he could; he could go if he would; he said
           that he would go; I would fain go, but can not; I would
           that I were young again; and other like phrases. In the
           last use, the first personal pronoun is often omitted;
           as, would that he were here; would to Heaven that it
           were so; and, omitting the to in such an adjuration.
           "Would God I had died for thee." Would is used for both
           present and future time, in conditional propositions,
           and would have for past time; as, he would go now if he
           were ready; if it should rain, he would not go; he
           would have gone, had he been able. Would not, as also
           will not, signifies refusal. "He was angry, and would
           not go in." --Luke xv. 28. Would is never a past
           participle.
           [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: In Ireland, Scotland, and the United States, especially
           in the southern and western portions of the United
           States, shall and will, should and would, are often
           misused, as in the following examples: 
           [1913 Webster]
  
                 I am able to devote as much time and attention to
                 other subjects as I will [shall] be under the
                 necessity of doing next winter.    --Chalmers.
           [1913 Webster]
  
                 A countryman, telling us what he had seen,
                 remarked that if the conflagration went on, as it
                 was doing, we would [should] have, as our next
                 season's employment, the Old Town of Edinburgh to
                 rebuild.                           --H. Miller.
           [1913 Webster]
  
                 I feel assured that I will [shall] not have the
                 misfortune to find conflicting views held by one
                 so enlightened as your excellency. --J. Y. Mason.
