Sense of "power to resist or recover, strength, endurance" first recorded 1726, in part from L. application to the threads spun by the Fates to determine the length and course of one's life, and partly from a figurative use of L. stamen "the warp (of cloth)" on the notion of the warp as the "foundation" of a fabric. ///
