English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. calm

    That is calm which is free from disturbance or agitation; in the physical sense, free from violent motion or action; in the mental or spiritual realm, free from excited or disturbing emotion or passion. We speak of a calm sea, a placid lake, a serene sky, a still night, a quiet day, a quiet home. We speak, also, of "still waters," "smooth sailing," which are different modes of expressing freedom from manifest agitation. Of mental conditions, one is calm who triumphs over a tendency to excitement; cool, if he scarcely feels the tendency. One may be calm by the very reaction from excitement, or by the oppression of overpowering emotion, as we speak of the calmness of despair. One is composed who has subdued excited feeling; he is collected when he has every thought, feeling, or perception awake and at command. Tranquil refers to a present state, placid, to a prevailing tendency. We speak of a tranquil mind, a placid disposition. The serene spirit dwells as if in the clear upper air, above all storm and shadow.

    The star of the unconquered will,
    He rises in my breast,
    Serene, and resolute, and still,
    And calm, and self-possessed.

    Longfellow Light of Stars st. 7.

    collected, composed, cool, dispassionate, imperturbable, peaceful, placid, quiet, sedate, self-possessed, serene, smooth, still, tranquil, undisturbed, unruffled

How to use calm in a sentence?

  1. Quentin Crisp:

    Euphemisms are not, as many young people think, useless verbiage for that which can and should be said bluntly; they are like secret agents on a delicate mission, they must airily pass by a stinking mess with barely so much as a nod of the head, make their point of constructive criticism and continue on in calm forbearance. Euphemisms are unpleasant truths wearing diplomatic cologne.

  2. Stanley Ducharme:

    Some people can handle pressure and crises in their life and stay calm and loving, other people sort of fall apart—they get frustrated and upset and need to blame someone.

  3. Wilbur Ross:

    If we resolve phase one, that will calm people down a lot because they'll see an end point is hopefully within sight.

  4. Willa Cather:

    There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm.

  5. Hirving Lozano:

    This is unbelievable, unforgettable, it fills me with pride and happiness, the truth is I'm very happy that the names of very important teams are being linked with me. I have to stay calm and take things slowly. I'm very concentrated on having a good World Cup. I'm really enjoying it.
