English Synonyms and Antonyms
Synonymous (Greek syn, together, and onyma, name) strictly signifies being interchangeable names for the same thing, or being one of two or more interchangeable names for the same thing; to say that two words are synonymous is strictly to say they are alike, equivalent, identical, or the same in meaning; but the use of synonymous in this strict sense is somewhat rare, and rather with reference to statements than to words.
To say that we are morally developed is synonymous with saying that we have reaped what some one has suffered for us.
H. W. BeecherRoyal Truths p. 294. [ Ticknor & Fields'66.]
In the strictest sense, synonymous words scarcely exist; rarely, if ever, are any two words in any language equivalent or identical in meaning; where a difference in meaning can not easily be shown, a difference in usage commonly exists, so that the words are not interchangeable. By synonymous words (or synonyms) we usually understand words that coincide or nearly coincide in some part of their meaning, and may hence within certain limits be used interchangeably, while outside of those limits they may differ very greatly in meaning and use. It is the office of a work on synonyms to point out these correspondences and differences, that language may have the flexibility that comes from freedom of selection within the common limits, with the perspicuity and precision that result from exact choice of the fittest words to express each shade of meaning outside of the common limits. To consider synonymous words identical is fatal to accuracy; to forget that they are similar, to some extent equivalent, and sometimes interchangeable, is destructive of freedom and variety.

It can be shown mathematically that only attitude will enable you to reach 100% towards your goal, the finish line where everything else, including skills or knowledge or hard work, cannot reach. If you assign the numbers to the letters A to Z as 1 to 26 respectively, and then add the corresponding numbers for the spellings of each word, you will get 63% for skill, 82% for skills, 96% for knowledge, 98% for hard work, and exact 100% for attitude. Math is really beautiful here, in my view, for it elucidates and illuminates the fact that good attitude can empower you reach your goals 100%.
