English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. character

    Character is what one is; reputation, what he is thought to be; his record is the total of his known action or inaction. As a rule, a man's record will substantially express his character; his reputation may be higher or lower than his character or record will justify. Repute is a somewhat formal word, with the same general sense as reputation. One's nature includes all his original endowments or propensities; character includes both natural and acquired traits. We speak of one's physical constitution as strong or weak, etc., and figuratively, always with the adjective, of his mental or moral constitution. Compare CHARACTERISTIC.

    Synonyms:
    constitution, disposition, genius, nature, personality, record, reputation, spirit, temper, temperament

    Preposition:
    The witness has a character for veracity; his character is above suspicion; the character of the applicant.

  1. RJ Intindola – (Gandolfo):

    Evaluate one’s tone, demeanor and words and you shall know their character.

  2. David Downton:

    What unites them is tenacity, humor, strength of character, individuality and -- of course -- style.

  3. Paul. F. Meekin:

    I like cooking, maybe because for me it is actually quite an aggressive and controlling activity so it fits my character quite well. Moreover there is sometimes a small element of force-feeding going on after I cook, I care nothing for people who cry out NO MORE! Yes its true cooking for me is a little like going to war. It is entered into with a total abandonment of reason and a lack of safety of everyone around!

  4. James Comey:

    I think people like that, like Rod Rosenstein, who are people of accomplishment but not real sterling character, strong character, find themselves trapped, and then they start telling themselves a story to justify their being trapped, which is, yeah, Rod Rosenstein's awful, but the country needs me.

  5. Vander Plaats:

    We will be going all in for Sen. Ted Cruz, we have found him as a man of deep character. A man that we can fully trust, who has a consistency of convictions, who loves his god, loves his spouse, and who loves his family. We also see him to be very, very competent. Not always popular, but very competent. He has challenged both sides of the aisle. He understands what it's going to take to get the country out of the mess that we're currently in. We believe that he is exceptionally competent and that adds to his extraordinary leadership.
