      moral reflection; didactic. [Obsoles.]
      [1913 Webster]

            Nay, ev'n each moral sentimental stroke,
            Where not the character, but poet, spoke,
            He lopped, as foreign to his chaste design,
            Nor spared a useless, though a golden line.
      [1913 Webster]

   2. Inclined to sentiment; having an excess of sentiment or

   Syn: Romantic.

   Usage: Sentimental, Romantic. Sentimental usually
          describes an error or excess of the sensibilities;
          romantic, a vice of the imagination. The votary of the
          former gives indulgence to his sensibilities for the
          mere luxury of their excitement; the votary of the
          latter allows his imagination to rove for the pleasure
          of creating scenes of ideal enjoiment. "Perhaps there
          is no less danger in works called sentimental. They
          attack the heart more successfully, because more
          cautiously." --V. Knox. "I can not but look on an
          indifferency of mind, as to the good or evil things of
          this life, as a mere romantic fancy of such who would
          be thought to be much wiser than they ever were, or
          could be." --Bp. Stillingfleet.
          [1913 Webster]
