Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
She was quite disappointed that Mr. Sedley was not married; she was sure Amelia had said he was, and she doted so on little children.
What dust we dote on, when 't is man we love.
dote (on) = to show excessive fondness or love; to be excessively or foolishly fond; to love to excess; to be weakly affectionate
Thanks for your efforts.
Yes, you're right.
