English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. peacefulness

    Ease denotes freedom from cause of disturbance, whether external or internal. Quiet denotes freedom from agitation, or especially from annoying sounds. Rest is a cessation of activity especially of wearying or painful activity. Recreation is some pleasing activity of certain organs or faculties that affords rest to other parts of our nature that have become weary. Repose is a laying down, primarily of the body, and figuratively a similar freedom from toil or strain of mind. Repose is more complete than rest; a pause is a momentary cessation of activity; a black-smith finds a temporary rest while the iron is heating, but he does not yield to repose; in a pause of battle a soldier rests on his arms; after the battle the victor reposes on his laurels. Sleep is the perfection of repose, the most complete rest; slumber is a light and ordinarily pleasant form of sleep. In the figurative sense, rest of mind, soul, conscience, is not mere cessation of activity, but a pleasing, tranquil relief from all painful and wearying activity; repose is even more deep, tranquil, and complete.

    “Reading Aberjhani's poems will leave you swimming in thoughts of completeness. To see and hear the voice of another human being express such quality of life, such peacefulness in thought, such pride in character is beyond words… It's a true sign to the talent and gift he has when it comes to constructing words in such a way that leaves you feeling like a certain thirst has been quenched… It is a validation to the simple task of being human, of feeling love in small spaces, in odd and familiar places, in dreams and in thoughts.”
