English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. attachment

    An attachment is a feeling that binds a person by ties of heart to another person or thing; we speak of a man's adherence to his purpose, his adhesion to his party, or to anything to which he clings tenaciously, tho with no special tenderness; of his attachment to his church, to the old homestead, or to any persons or objects that he may hold dear. Affection expresses more warmth of feeling; we should not speak of a mother's attachment to her babe, but of her affection or of her devotion. Inclination expresses simply a tendency, which may be good or bad, yielded to or overcome; as, an inclination to study; an inclination to drink. Regard is more distant than affection or attachment, but closer and warmer than esteem; we speak of high esteem, kind regard. Compare ACQUAINTANCE; APPENDAGE; FRIENDSHIP; LOVE; UNION.

    adherence, adhesion, affection, devotion, esteem, esteem, estimation, friendship, inclination, love, regard, tenderness, union

    Antonyms:

  4. Kristin Daley:

    Sleep is an area of health and medicine that's strongly politicized, you have the attachment parenting people and the rigorous sleep training crowd, and so starting from infancy there is a marker of' how I'm doing as a parent can be seen in how regulated my kid is.'.

  5. Letitia Elizabeth Landon:

    I like a cat because it does not disguise its selfishness with any flattering hypocrisies. Its attachment is not to yourself, but to your house. Let it but have food, and a warm lair among the embers, and it heeds not at whose expense. Then it has the spirit to resent aggression. You shall beat your dog, and he will fawn upon you; but a cat never forgives : it has no tender mercies, and it torments before it destroys its prey.
