But there are other definitions for the word "quick". Here are some sample sentences, courtesy of TheFreeDictionary.com:
- The remark cut her to the quick.
- He got to the quick of the matter.
A little more obscure (archaic meanings):
- The quick and the dead. (or the live and the dead)
- She was quickening. (she was pregnant)
Regardless, I am NOT quickening, I am quick (in oh so many ways), I try not to cut to the quick but am usually good at getting to the quick of the matter.
