expressing extreme pain of body or mind. Agony denotes
acute and permanent pain, usually of the whole
system., and often producing contortions. Anguish
denotes severe pressure, and, considered as bodily

paroxysm of excruciating pain. It is severe and
transient. The agonies or pangs of remorse; the
anguish of a wounded conscience. ``Oh, sharp
convulsive pangs of agonizing pride!' --Dryden.
