Definition of gratuitousness
- The state or characteristic of being gratuitous.
* 1894, Thomas Hardy, Life's Little Ironies, ch. 1:
[I]t is beyond question that there are a few subtle-souled persons with whom the absolute gratuitousness of an act of reparation is an inducement to perform it; while exhortation as to its necessity would breed excuses for leaving it undone.
