EXAMPLES FROM THE WEB FOR SOLENESS

How do we arrive at the idea of the unity of existence from that of its soleness?

Not even indignation, or the desire of revenge, interfere with its soleness and intensity.

WORD ORIGIN

"bottom of the foot" ("technically, the planta, corresponding to the palm of the hand," Century Dictionary), early 14c., from Old French sole, from Vulgar Latin *sola, from Latin solea "sandal, bottom of a shoe; a flatfish," from solum "bottom, ground, foundation, lowest point of a thing" (hence "sole of the foot"), of uncertain origin. In English, the meaning "bottom of a shoe or boot" is from late 14c.
