ting

Definition from Dictionary, a free dictionary
The greatest blunders, like the thickest ropes, are often compounded of a multitude of strands. Take the rope apart, separate it into the small threads that compose it, and you can break them one by one. You think, "That is all there was!" But twist them all together and you have something tremendous.
Victor Hugo

Cognate with modern Icelandic þing (of the same meaning), Old English and Old Frisian thing, German Ding and fellow Scandinavian languages Swedish and Norwegian ting, where the word's meaning has broadened to the sense of thing; any individual object (cf. Icelandic hlutur).
