English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. fury

    Displeasure is the mildest and most general word. Choler and ire, now rare except in poetic or highly rhetorical language, denote a still, and the latter a persistent, anger. Temper used alone in the sense of anger is colloquial, tho we may correctly say a hot temper, a fiery temper, etc. Passion, tho a word of far wider application, may, in the singular, be employed to denote anger; "did put me in a towering passion," Shakespeare Hamlet act v, sc. 2. Anger is violent and vindictive emotion, which is sharp, sudden, and, like all violent passions, necessarily brief. Resentment (a feeling back or feeling over again) is persistent, the bitter brooding over injuries. Exasperation, a roughening, is a hot, superficial intensity of anger, demanding instant expression. Rage drives one beyond the bounds of prudence or discretion; fury is stronger yet, and sweeps one away into uncontrollable violence. Anger is personal and usually selfish, aroused by real or supposed wrong to oneself, and directed specifically and intensely against the person who is viewed as blameworthy. Indignation is impersonal and unselfish displeasure at unworthy acts (Latin indigna), i. e., at wrong as wrong. Pure indignation is not followed by regret, and needs no repentance; it is also more self-controlled than anger. Anger is commonly a sin; indignation is often a duty. Wrath is deep and perhaps vengeful displeasure, as when the people of Nazareth were "filled with wrath" at the plain words of Jesus (Luke iv, 28); it may, however, simply express the culmination of righteous indignation without malice in a pure being; as, the wrath of God. Impatience, fretfulness, irritation, peevishness, pettishness, petulance, and vexation express the slighter forms of anger. Irritation, petulance, and vexation are temporary and for immediate cause. Fretfulness, pettishness, and peevishness are chronic states finding in any petty matter an occasion for their exercise. Compare ACRIMONY; ENMITY; HATRED.

    Synonyms:
    anger, animosity, choler, displeasure, exasperation, fretfulness, impatience, indignation, ire, irritation, offense, passion, peevishness, pettishness, petulance, rage, resentment, temper, vexation, wrath

    Antonyms:
    amiability, charity, forbearance, gentleness, leniency, lenity, long-suffering, love, mildness, patience, peace, peaceableness, peacefulness, self-control, self-restraint

    Preposition:
    Anger at the insult prompted the reply. Anger toward the offender exaggerates the offense.

How to use fury in a sentence?

  1. Dan Abrams:

    I am troubled by the fervor, occasional glee, and potentially disproportionate fury emanating from an unusual assortment of allies now determined to end Brian’s storied career based on what we know today. This alliance of certaincapital-J journalists,conservative bloggers, and some who simply despise any rich and famous journalist are a formidable force.

  2. Pope Francis:

    I think the devil is punishing Mexico with great fury.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Creation and cultivation of Beauty doesn’t happen without tremendous Endurance. True Beauty is often emerged out of Chaos and Turbulence. Look at the eruptions of Volcanoes and shaking of Earth that give birth to beautiful mountains and scenic lakes. Think of those amazingly attractive Stalactites formed only after continuous erosion by slow dripping water. Something far superior, magnificent, better and beautiful always appears out of otherwise ordinary - only after enduring the colossal Chaos, frightening Fury, traumatizing Turbulence and disturbing Disorder within the stagnant Status Quo. That’s the reality of life! So, accept and endure the changes, no matter how chaotic, stormy and irrational they may seem to you today. You are chosen by Supreme Powers to Create and Cultivate the Beauty, something that never existed before – only through your exceptional Endurance. And I am sure that you will, my friend, pass this test with flying colors. You’ve done it before, and you’ll do it again. Go on, and break a leg!

  4. Linda Flanagan:

    My son was awe-struck by that, sports have become a vehicle to convey your anger and fury at the world.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Life is always what you make of it, although it's often full of surprises and unexpected twists. Playwright William Shakespeare wrote that Life is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. In actuality, your life is a story written by no one else but you; and it's always up to you to make it interesting, worthwhile, and wonderful.
