English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. fade

    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, expire, 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.

  3. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    Never compare your life with someone else's life. You have no idea what he or she does secretly i.e. behind your back. Forgive all things and everyone. Never overdo anything, have a limit and keep to it. Don't take yourself and life so seriously. Overlook some things sometimes. Never waste your precious energy or time on gossip. Utilize your God-given energy and time. Dream big, be a visionary and dare to pursue your dreams and visions unyieldingly until you realize them. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need presently to survive. Any other thing which you think that you still need to live comfortably will be given to you by God in due course i.e. at the right time. Life itself is a school and you are meant to learn everyday from it. So, learn each day and then wise up. Challenges of life are like flowers that do show up for just a little while and then fade away. I mean, you are not yet done for. Oh! yes, once there is life there is equally hope. ~Emeasoba George
