ado (uncountable)

  1. trouble; troublesome business; fuss, commotion
    • c. 1596-97, William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice, Act I scene i[1]:
      Antonio:
      In sooth, I know not why I am so sad.
      It wearies me; you say it wearies you;
      But how I caught it, found it, or came by it,
      What stuff 'tis made of, whereof it is born,
      I am to learn;
      And such a wantwit sadness makes of me,
      That I have much ado to know myself.
    • 1902, William James, The Varieties of Religious Experience:
      Probably a crab would be filled with a sense of personal outrage if it could hear us class it without ado or apology as a crustacean, and thus dispose of it. “I am no such thing,” it would say; “I am myself, myself alone.”
