English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. enjoyment

    Entertainment and recreation imply thought and mental occupation, tho in an agreeable, refreshing way; they are therefore words of a high order. Entertainment, apart from its special senses of a public performance or a social party, and predominantly even there, is used of somewhat mirthful mental delight; recreation may, and usually does, combine the mental with the physical. Amusement and pastime are nearly equivalent, the latter probably the lighter word; many slight things may be pastimes which we should hardly dignify by the name of amusements. Sports are almost wholly on the physical plane, tho involving a certain grade of mental action; fox-hunting, horse-racing, and baseball are sports. Certain sports may afford entertainment or recreation to certain persons, according to their individual tastes; but entertainment and recreation are capable of a meaning so high as never to be approached by any meaning of sport. Cheer may be very quiet, as the cheer of a bright fire to an aged traveler; merriment is with liveliness and laughter; fun and frolic are apt to be boisterous. Amusement is a form of enjoyment, but enjoyment may be too keen to be called amusement. Compare synonyms for ENTERTAIN.

    amusement, cheer, delight, diversion, entertainment, frolic, fun, merriment, pastime, pleasure, recreation, sport

    Antonyms:
    ennui, fatigue, labor, lassitude, toil, weariness, work

How to use enjoyment in a sentence?

  1. Dugald Stewart:

    The faculty of imagination is the great spring of human activity, and the principle source of human improvement. As it delights in presenting to the mind scenes and characters more perfect than those which we are acquainted with, it prevents us from ever being completely satisfied without present condition, or with our past attainments, and engages us continually in the pursuit of some untried enjoyment, or of some ideal excellence. Destroy this faculty, and the condition of man will become as stationary as that of the brutes.

  2. Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged:

    Love is our response to our highest values. Love is self-enjoyment. The noblest love is born out of admiration of another's values.

  3. Elie Hirschfeld:

    … I am not sure I want [Trump, Hillary Clinton] or any other candidate - playing my favorite music, music offers relaxation, enjoyment – can that really be reconciled with politicians?

  4. Fiona Bull:

    Four in every five adolescents do not experience the enjoyment and social, physical, and mental health benefits of regular physical activity.

  5. Aleister Crowley:

    The joy of life consists in the exercise of one's energies, continual growth, constant change, the enjoyment of every new experience. To stop means simply to die. The eternal mistake of mankind is to set up an attainable ideal.
