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.

How to use calm in a sentence?

  1. Gwen Stefani:

    The pressure of just wanting it to be so great and it’s such a new place to be. After everything I've done trying to kind of sum it up, you know what I mean? Boil it down, it was a lot and everything went wrong building up to it as always… When you have so much experience in it, you just remain calm because you know it's gonna work out. It has to. Some version of it will work out.

  2. Leah Greenbaum:

  3. Amy George:

    Because of that injury, there can be a miscommunication between the brain and bladder—the bladder has a mind of its own, and instead of staying nice and calm until [it's full], your bladder has involuntary spasms throughout the day.

  4. Paul Pogba:

    NG is always very reserved, very calm and very timid, except when he is playing cards.

  5. Susie Boyde:
