Note: From is the primary sense of this preposition; a sense
retained in off, the same word differently written for
distinction. But this radical sense disappears in most
of its application; as, a man of genius; a man of rare
endowments; a fossil of a red color, or of an hexagonal
figure; he lost all hope of relief; an affair of the
cabinet; he is a man of decayed fortune; what is the
price of corn? In these and similar phrases, of denotes
property or possession, or a relation of some sort
involving connection. These applications, however all
proceeded from the same primary sense. That which
proceeds from, or is produced by, a person or thing,
either has had, or still has, a close connection with
the same; and hence the word was applied to cases of
mere connection, not involving at all the idea of
separation.
[1913 Webster]

{Of consequence}, of importance, value, or influence.

{Of late}, recently; in time not long past.

{Of old}, formerly; in time long past.

{Of one's self}, by one's self; without help or prompting;
spontaneously.

England is safe, if true within itself? --Shak.
