English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. devotion

    Allegiance is the obligation of fidelity and obedience that an individual owes to his government or sovereign, in return for the protection he receives. The feudal uses of these words have mostly passed away with the state of society that gave them birth; but their origin still colors their present meaning. A patriotic American feels an enthusiastic loyalty to the republic; he takes, on occasion, an oath of allegiance to the government, but his loyalty will lead him to do more than mere allegiance could demand; he pays homage to God alone, as the only king and lord, or to those principles of right that are spiritually supreme; he acknowledges the duty of obedience to all rightful authority; he resents the idea of subjection. Fealty is becoming somewhat rare, except in elevated or poetic style. We prefer to speak of the faithfulness rather than the fealty of citizen, wife, or friend.

    Synonyms:
    allegiance, faithfulness, fealty, homage, loyalty, obedience, subjection

    Antonyms:
    disaffection, disloyalty, rebellion, sedition, treason

    Preposition:
    We honor the allegiance of the citizen to the government; the government has a right to allegiance from the citizen.

How to use devotion in a sentence?

  1. Theodore Roosevelt:

    It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again. Because there is no effort without error and shortcomings, he who knows the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the high achievement of triumph and who at worst, if he fails while daring greatly, knows his place shall never be with those timid and cold souls who know neither victory nor defeat".

  2. Eugene E. Brussell:

    A fanatic is one compelled to action by the need to find a strong meaning in life. The fanatic determines for himself what role he is to play in life, and his intense devotion to a cause is the means.

  3. Nevsin Mengu:

    These young soldiers had only fear in their eyes and no sign of devotion or determination, they asked us to go offline but we said it was not doable. They didn't know how to do it so our empty studio was live on TV for the whole time before we regained control.

  4. Craig McKenzie:

    The only ammunition against reckless discouragement is relentless devotion.

  5. Joe Montoya:
