English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. chaste

    That is pure which is free from mixture or contact with anything that weakens, impairs, or pollutes. Material substances are called pure in the strict sense when free from foreign admixture of any kind; as, pure oxygen; the word is often used to signify free from any defiling or objectionable admixture (the original sense); we speak of water as pure when it is bright, clear, and refreshing, tho it may contain mineral salts in solution; in the medical and chemical sense, only distilled water (aqua pura) is pure. In moral and religious use pure is a strong word, denoting positive excellence of a high order; one is innocent who knows nothing of evil, and has experienced no touch of temptation; one is pure who, with knowledge of evil and exposure to temptation, keeps heart and soul unstained. Virtuous refers primarily to right action; pure to right feeling and motives; as, "Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God," Matt. v, 8. Compare FINE; INNOCENT.

How to use chaste in a sentence?

  1. Malcolm Muggeridge:

    Good taste and humor are a contradiction in terms, like a chaste whore.

  2. Chris Kilham:

    I would say for that for the most part, the traditional use— which is quite broad and extensive [and] I regard very highly— currently exceeds the human clinical studies, there have been human studies showing that vitex or chaste berry works, and it seems to work well. There are no serious negative effects that we know of.

  3. Fyodor Dostoyevsky:

    Sarcasm: the last refuge of modest and chaste-souled people when the privacy of their soul is coarsely and intrusively invaded.

  4. Alexander Hamilton:

    Such a wife as I want... must be young, handsome I lay most stress upon a good shape, sensible a little learning will do, well-bread, chaste, and tender. As to religion, a moderate stock will satisfy me. She must believe in God and hate a saint.

  5. William Shakespeare:

    Be thou as chaste as ice, as pure as snow, thou shalt not escape calumny. Get thee to a nunnery, go.
