English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. diverge

    In some cases a thing is spoken of as bent where the parts make an angle; but oftener to bend is understood to be to draw to or through a curve; as, to bend a bow. To submit or yield is to bend the mind humbly to another's wishes. To incline or influence is to bend another's wishes toward our own; to persuade is to draw them quite over. To warp is to bend silently through the whole fiber, as a board in the sun. To crook is to bend irregularly, as a crooked stick. Deflect, deviate, and diverge are said of any turning away; deviate commonly of a slight and gradual movement, diverge of a more sharp and decided one. To bias is to cut across the texture, or incline to one side; in figurative use always with an unfavorable import. Mold is a stronger work than bend; we may bend by a superior force that which still resists the constraint; as, a bent bow; we mold something plastic entirely to some desired form.

    Synonyms:
    bend, bias, bow, crook, curve, deflect, deviate, incline, influence, mold, persuade, stoop, submit, turn, twine, twist, warp, yield

How to use diverge in a sentence?

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Two roads may diverge in a yellow wood, and I - I will choose neither one. Instead I'll create my own road to follow my own convictions and dreams. After all, any road is only a road - unless and until you make something of it. Just like that Life is full of choices, and yet Life is also what you make of it. Every learning and every wisdom that I will gain in my journey, will leave the leaves trodden black. And that's what will make the difference.
