English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. curse

    Abomination (from the Latin ab omen, a thing of ill omen) was originally applied to anything held in religious or ceremonial aversion or abhorrence; as, "The things which are highly esteemed among men are abomination in the sight of God." Luke xvi, 15. The word is oftener applied to the object of such aversion or abhorrence than to the state of mind that so regards it; in common use abomination signifies something very much disliked or loathed, or that deserves to be. Choice food may be an object of aversion and disgust to a sick person; vile food would be an abomination. A toad is to many an object of disgust; a foul sewer is an abomination. As applied to crimes, abomination is used of such as are especially brutal, shameful, or revolting; theft is an offense; infanticide is an abomination.

    Antonyms:
    affection, appreciation, approval, benefit, blessing, delight, desire, enjoyment, esteem, esteem, gratification, joy, satisfaction, treat

    Synonyms:
    abhorrence, abomination, abuse, annoyance, aversion, crime, detestation, disgust, evil, execration, hatred, horror, iniquity, nuisance, offense, plague, shame, villainy, wickedness

How to use curse in a sentence?

  1. Oscar Wilde:

    Work is the curse of the drinking class.

  2. Simone de Beauvoir:

    The curse which lies upon marriage is that too often the individuals are joined in their weakness rather than in their strength --each asking from the other instead of finding pleasure in giving. It is even more deceptive to dream of gaining through the child a plenitude, a warmth, a value, which one is unable to create for oneself; the child brings joy only to the woman who is capable of disinterestedly desiring the happiness of another, to one who without being wrapped up in self seeks to transcend her own existence.

  3. Coco Gauff:

    The one thing you did... you didn't give out no free points on her damn serve, coco Gauff can't curse.

  4. Maamoun Abdulkarim:

    It's as though there is a curse that has befallen this city and I expect only news that will shock us. If the city remains in their hands the city is doomed, it is now wanton destruction ... their acts of vengeance are no longer ideologically driven because they are now blowing up buildings with no religious meaning.

  5. Prophet Muhammad:

    I've not been send to curse people, but as a mercy to ALL Mankind
