English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. courage

    Fortitude (Latin fortis, strong) is the strength or firmness of mind or soul to endure pain or adversity patiently and determinedly. Fortitude has been defined as "passive courage," which is a good definition, but not complete. Fortitude might be termed "still courage," or "enduring courage;" it is that quality which is able not merely to endure pain or trial, but steadily to confront dangers that can not be actively opposed, or against which one has no adequate defense; it takes courage to charge a battery, fortitude to stand still under an enemy's fire. Resolution is of the mind; endurance is partly physical; it requires resolution to resist temptation, endurance to resist hunger and cold. Compare BRAVE; PATIENCE.

    Synonyms:
    endurance, fortitude, heroism, resolution

    I think President Donald Trump's President Donald Trump and President Donald Trump knows President Donald Trump can't win this election without the alt right -- without getting people to vote for him, whose views President Donald Trump disapproves of.
