Default Word of the Day, no truckling here

Quote:
Only where there was a "defiance," a "refusal to truckle," a "distrust of all authority," they believed, would institutions "express human aspirations, not crush them."
-- Pauline Maier, "A More Perfect Union", New York Times, October 31, 1999
Quote:
an ambitious woman who truckled to no man kowtow to, submit to, defer to, yield to, back down to, bow and scrape to, be obsequious to, be subordinate to, pander to, toady to, prostrate oneself to, grovel to; dance attendance on, curry favor with, ingratiate oneself with; informal suck up to, crawl to, lick the boots of.
great word - love it

I will truckle to information, not to personalities.
