English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. fade

    Die, to go out of life, become destitute of vital power and action, is figuratively applied to anything which has the appearance of life.

    Where the dying night-lamp flickers.

    Tennyson Locksley Hall st. 40.

    An echo, a strain of music, a tempest, a topic, an issue, dies. Expire (literally, to breathe out) is a softer word for die; it is used figuratively of things that cease to exist by reaching a natural limit; as, a lease expires; the time has expired. To perish (literally, in Latin, to go through, as in English we say, "the fire goes out") is oftenest used of death by privation or exposure; as, "I perish with hunger," Luke xv, 17; sometimes, of death by violence. Knowledge and fame, art and empires, may be said to perish; the word denotes utter destruction and decay.

    Antonyms:
    be born, be immortal, begin, come into being, come to life, exist, flourish, grow, live, rise again, rise from the dead, survive

    Synonyms:
    cease, decease, decline, depart, die, expire, perish, wither

    Preposition:
    To die of fever; by violence; rarely, with the sword, famine, etc. (Ezek. vii, 15); to die for one's country; to die at sea; in one's bed; in agony; die to the world.

How to use fade in a sentence?

  1. William Shakespeare, "The Tempest", Act 1 scene 2:

    Full fathom five thy father lies; Of his bones are coral made; Those are pearls that were his eyes: Nothing of him that doth fade But doth suffer a sea-change Into something rich and strange.

  2. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    The scripture says in (1st Peter 1:24 ) all humans are like grass and all their glory is like the flowers in the field, the flowers fade and the grass withers eventually. Now, are you beautiful or handsome? If yes then, take note of this, never be carried away by your beauty or handsomeness. For, you will sooner or later grow old and consequently your beauty or handsomeness will fade away. Moreover, are you intelligent, rich or wealthy presently? If yes, then listen up, never be carried away by your intelligence, riches or wealth. Because, you can't live forever and you won't keep on enjoying your life of affluence or luxury forever. I mean, you will surely leave your riches or wealth behind someday. Anyway, this is not meant to scare you, so don't be scared. I'm just realistic, because I'm a realist and that's why I'm admonishing you. Thus, take heed of my admonitions or rather pay attention to my admonitions. ~Emeasoba George

  3. Kittredge Cherry:

    Once you love someone, that love lasts forever in the universe. Love never ends. Satan’s big lie was that hatred, fear, sin, and death can sometimes conquer love. No. Time makes them fade, while love endures forever. Love—love in any form whatsoever, any love that is ever loved—remains and is gradually filling the vast expanse of the universe.

  4. Debasish Mridha, M.D.:

    Thoughts and imaginations will fade away if you don't act on them.

  5. Eugene Deibler:

    How many people remember the Civil War? How many people will remember World War I? And now its the same with World War II, world War II will fade away also.
