A healthy young man shakes at the knees in reading his first essay before a public audience; we say he is nervous. An inebriate trembles and shakes upon attempt at either mental or motor work - we say again that he is nervous. A woman Over slight occurrences cries or laughs until exhausted, we say that she is nervous.
