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.

  1. Prince Abdulaziz:

    The potential impact of current cuts in expenditure on future oil supplies is both substantial and long-lasting, non-OPEC supply is expected to fall in 2016, only one year after the deep cuts in investment. Beyond 2016, the fall in non-OPEC supply is likely to accelerate, as the cancellation and postponement of projects will start feeding into future supplies, and the impact of previous record investments on oil output starts to fade away.

  2. Paul Dayton:

    Traditions are sometimes long to fade away due to lack of good evidence to support change – this paper will certainly help to drive change, early water exposure may in fact be a universally safe recommendation.

  3. Kittredge Cherry:

    Once you love someone, that love lasts forever in the universe. Love never ends. Satan’s big lie was that hatred, fear, sin, and death can sometimes conquer love. No. Time makes them fade, while love endures forever. Love—love in any form whatsoever, any love that is ever loved—remains and is gradually filling the vast expanse of the universe.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    We, as Humans, are distinct and unique in our capability to dream, and then strive to transform those Dreams into reality. The Dreams at night, seen with eyes wide shut, are nothing but illusions created by electronic impulses and waves within our brain and central nervous system. On the contrary, the Dreams seen in broad daylight, with our eyes wide open, are the most important ones, because we can pursue those diligently with total focus from our heart and mind, and soon make them come true in actuality. In my opinion, these Dreamers, Believers, Pursuers, Thinkers, Inventors, Innovators, Planners, Strategists, and Doers are the ones who change our world, and make it better and better than it was ever before. Our world needs billions and trillions of such Dreamers who will lead humanity to perfection. So, never let your Dreams fade away or die, especially those you've seen in the broad daylight, with eyes wide open. Go after your Dreams, relentlessly with perfect plan, passion and perseverance, no matter what others say or do. Good luck in making your Dreams come true.!

  5. Brock Silvers:

    Given Ma's experience and massive stake in the company, as well as Jack Ma status as the perhaps the only major Chinese executive capable of effectively representing China Inc. on a global stage, there is little chance that [ Jack Ma ] will fade away, especially given today's worsening trade environment, Jack Ma will continue to play a significant role.
