English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. discipline

    Castigate and chastise refer strictly to corporal punishment, tho both are somewhat archaic; correct and punish are often used as euphemisms in preference to either. Punish is distinctly retributive in sense; chastise, partly retributive, and partly corrective; chasten, wholly corrective. Chasten is used exclusively in the spiritual sense, and chiefly of the visitation of God.

    Synonyms:
    afflict, castigate, chasten, chastise, correct, humble, punish, purify, refine, soften, subdue, try

    Preposition:
    "We are chastened of the Lord," 1 Cor. xi, 32; "they ... chastened us after their own pleasure, but He for our profit," Heb. xii, 10; "chasten in thy hot displeasure," Ps. iv, 7; chasten with pain; by trials and sorrows.

How to use discipline in a sentence?

  1. Walter Bagehot:

    War both needs and generates certain virtues; not the highest, but what may be called the preliminary virtues, as valor, veracity, the spirit of obedience, the habit of discipline. Any of these, and of others like them, when possessed by a nation, and no matter how generated, will give them a military advantage, and make them more likely to stay in the race of nations.

  2. Roger Stone:

    He's a brain surgeon, he doesn't come from the world of politics. He's also a straight talker. I think Trump/Carson would be a very strong ticket. Beyond that, I would try to find someone outside the discipline of politics.

  3. Eloise Salholz:

    Living up to basic ethical standards in the classroom-discipline, tolerance, honesty-is one of the most important ways children learn how to function in society at large.

    If we improve two and a half seconds, we will win next year, it's realistic, but the thing is we need to work very hard with very high discipline all winter, all united, because in this new Formula One everything is a package, it's not anymore an engine, aerodynamic, mechanical side.

  5. George Washington:

    Discipline is the soul of an army. It makes small numbers formidable; procures success to the weak and esteem to all
