English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. expire

    Die, to go out of life, become destitute of vital power and action, is figuratively applied to anything which has the appearance of life.

    Where the dying night-lamp flickers.

    Tennyson Locksley Hall st. 40.

    An echo, a strain of music, a tempest, a topic, an issue, dies. Expire (literally, to breathe out) is a softer word for die; it is used figuratively of things that cease to exist by reaching a natural limit; as, a lease expires; the time has expired. To perish (literally, in Latin, to go through, as in English we say, "the fire goes out") is oftenest used of death by privation or exposure; as, "I perish with hunger," Luke xv, 17; sometimes, of death by violence. Knowledge and fame, art and empires, may be said to perish; the word denotes utter destruction and decay.

    Synonyms:
    cease, decease, decline, depart, die, fade, perish, wither

    Antonyms:
    be born, be immortal, begin, come into being, come to life, exist, flourish, grow, live, rise again, rise from the dead, survive

    Preposition:
    To die of fever; by violence; rarely, with the sword, famine, etc. (Ezek. vii, 15); to die for one's country; to die at sea; in one's bed; in agony; die to the world.

  1. Stephen Breyer:

    The apparent reason has nothing to do with the heinousness of their crimes, apparently the reason the State decided to proceed with these eight executions is that the 'use by' date of the state's execution drug is about to expire. In my view, that factor, when considered as a determining factor separating those who live from those who die, is close to random.

  2. Emeasoba George:

    I do aspire to inspire the world and the posterity ahead because my lifetime will surely and eventually expire someday. Thus, you too should aspire to inspire the world as well.

Oh! yes, every living thing and every human was born to live here (on earth) just for a while. And then, die someday or eventually and never to live forever (mark you). -Emeasoba George
