English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. dwelling

    Abode, dwelling, and habitation are used with little difference of meaning to denote the place where one habitually lives; abode and habitation belong to the poetic or elevated style. Even dwelling is not used in familiar speech; a person says "my house," "my home," or more formally "my residence." Home, from the Anglo-Saxon, denoting originally a dwelling, came to mean an endeared dwelling as the scene of domestic love and happy and cherished family life, a sense to which there is an increasing tendency to restrict the word — desirably so, since we have other words to denote the mere dwelling-place; we say "The wretched tenement could not be called home," or "The humble cabin was dear to him as the home of his childhood."

    Home's not merely four square walls,
    Tho with pictures hung and gilded;
    Home is where affection calls —
    Where its shrine the heart has builded.

    Thus the word comes to signify any place of rest and peace, and especially heaven, as the soul's peaceful and eternal dwelling-place.

How to use dwelling in a sentence?

  1. Tao Le Ching:

    In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep to the simple. In conflict, be fair and generous. In governing, don't try to control. In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present.

  2. Elliot Rodger:

    the brute will then invite the girl back to his place of dwelling, where he will achieve insertion. He will experience delights so heavenly, so incredible... delights, that have been so cruelly denied to me

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Don't waste your precious time in either dwelling in the Past, or dreaming of the Future. Focus on the Present instead. Life is like a Newspaper, which is as good as the freshness of the news it brings everyday. Always be in sync with the Present!

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    The power of "Now" needs to be recognized, rather than dwelling in the glory of the past. In the eyes of real world, everyone is as good as the news she/he brings today. Still, recognizing the power of "Now" mustn't get confused with the question "What have you done for me lately?" that usually comes from narcissistics and machiavellian leaders who are too self-centered and invariably obsessed with the feelings of entitlement. When you'll recognize the power of "Now", you'll internalize and automatically reorganize your thoughts and actions with positivity....and that's what will give you the tremendous strength, in my view, to deal those narcissistics and machiavellians. So, you must go ahead, and tap the latent power of "Now", right now.

  5. Christian Cooper:

    That's important to us birders because we know that dogs won't be off leash at all and we can go there to see the ground-dwelling birds, people spend a lot of money and time planting in those areas as well. Nothing grows in a dog run for a reason.
