Today's quiz

Good evening! Working hard on your vocabulary? Then today’s quiz is handy!
                                            Discontented     Solace       Threadbare
1.     Let us leave it to the reviewers to abuse such effusions of fancy at their leisure, and over every new novel to talk in threadbare strains of the trash with which the press now groans. (Northanger Abbey by Austen, Jane )
2.     It would make him discontented and unhappy. ( Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass An American Slave by Douglass, Frederick)
3.     There it must be, I think, in the vast and eternal laws of matter, and not in the daily cares and sins and troubles of men, that whatever is more than animal within us must find its solace and its hope. ( The Island of Doctor Moreau by Wells, H.G.)
