salutariness (plural salutarinesses)
- The state of being salutary
1907, Alexander Smith, Dreamthorp:
- It is true that the spectacle is painful, horrible; but in pain and horror there is often hidden a certain salutariness, and the repulsion of which we are conscious is as likely to arise from debilitation of public nerve, as from a higher reach of public feeling.
