  Gratify \Grat"i*fy\, v. t. [imp. & p. p. Gratified; p. pr. &
     vb. n. Gratifying.] [F. gratifier, L. gratificari; gratus
     pleasing + -ficare (in comp.) to make. See -fy.]
     1. To please; to give pleasure to; to satisfy; to soothe; to
        indulge; as, to gratify the taste, the appetite, the
        senses, the desires, the mind, etc.
        [1913 Webster]

     Syn: To indulge; humor please; delight; requite; recompense.
  
     Usage: To Gratify, Indulge, Humor. Gratify, is the
            generic term, and has reference simply to the pleasure
            communicated. To indulge a person implies that we
            concede something to his wishes or his weaknesses
            which he could not claim, and which had better,
            perhaps, be spared. To humor is to adapt ourselves to
            the varying moods, and, perhaps, caprices, of others.
            We gratify a child by showing him the sights of a
            large city; we indulge him in some extra expense on
            such an occasion; we humor him when he is tired and
            exacting.
            [1913 Webster]
