English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. belief

    Doctrine primarily signifies that which is taught; principle, the fundamental basis on which the teaching rests. A doctrine is reasoned out, and may be defended by reasoning; a dogma rests on authority, as of direct revelation, the decision of the church, etc. A doctrine or dogma is a statement of some one item of belief; a creed is a summary of doctrines or dogmas. Dogma has commonly, at the present day, an offensive signification, as of a belief arrogantly asserted. Tenet is simply that which is held, and is applied to a single item of belief; it is a neutral word, neither approving nor condemning; we speak of the doctrines of our own church; of the tenets of others. A precept relates not to belief, but to conduct. Compare FAITH; LAW.

    Synonyms:
    article of belief, article of faith, doctrine, dogma, precept, principle, teaching, tenet

How to use belief in a sentence?

  1. David J. Schwartz:

    Believe Big. The size of your success is determined by the size of your belief. Think little goals and expect little achievements. Think big goals and win big success. Remember this, too! Big ideas and big plans are often easier -- certainly no more difficult -- than small ideas and small plans.

  2. Tryon Edwards:

    Credulity is belief in slight evidence, with no evidence, or against evidence.

  3. Nicholas Weaver:

    Their only value is in the belief that someone later will pay more.

  4. Raphael Brun-Aguerre:

    Inflation in the second half of the year will probably be higher than what the ECB expects. Does that remove some incentive (to ease policy) in the short term? Maybe to some extent, but this inflation trajectory doesn't change much what's going to happen in 2017 and 2018. If they have the belief that they're going to miss on the inflation target in two years' time, that creates a problem.

  5. Cory Booker:

    I just have this strong belief now as I meet rural, white Americans, as I meet rural black Americans, we have so much of the common pain but we're lacking the sense of common purpose.
