  1. admire

    In the old sense of wonder, admire is practically obsolete; the word now expresses a delight and approval, in which the element of wonder unconsciously mingles. We admire beauty in nature and art, delight in the innocent happiness of children, enjoy books or society, a walk or a dinner. We approve what is excellent, applaud heroic deeds, esteem the good, love our friends. We honor and respect noble character wherever found; we revere and venerate it in the aged. We extol the goodness and adore the majesty and power of God.

    adore, applaud, approve, delight in, enjoy, esteem, esteem, extol, honor, love, respect, revere, venerate, wonder

    abhor, abominate, contemn, despise, detest, dislike, execrate, hate, ridicule, scorn

    Admire at may still very rarely be found in the old sense of wonder at.
