English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. glow

    Light, strictly denoting a form of radiant energy, is used as a general term for any luminous effect discernible by the eye, from the faintest phosphorescence to the blaze of the noonday sun. A flame is both hot and luminous; if it contains few solid particles it will yield little light, tho it may afford intense heat, as in the case of a hydrogen-flame. A blaze is an extensive, brilliant flame. A flare is a wavering flame or blaze; a flash is a light that appears and disappears in an instant; as, a flash of lightning; the flash of gunpowder. The glare and glow are steady, the glare painfully bright, the glow subdued; as, the glare of torches; the glow of dying embers. Shine and shining refer to a steady or continuous emission of light; sheen is a faint shining, usually by reflection. Glimmer, glitter, and shimmer denote wavering light. We speak of the glimmer of distant lamps through the mist; of the shimmer of waves in sunlight or moonlight. A gleam is not wavering, but transient or intermittent; a sudden gleam of light came through the half-open door; a glitter is a hard light; as, the glitter of burnished arms. A sparkle is a sudden light, as of sparks thrown out; scintillation is the more exact and scientific term for the actual emission of sparks, also the figurative term for what suggests such emission; as, scintillations of wit or of genius. Twinkle and twinkling are used of the intermittent light of the fixed stars. Glistening is a shining as from a wet surface. Illumination is a wide-spread, brilliant light, as when all the windows of a house or of a street are lighted. The light of incandescence is intense and white like that from metal at a white heat.

    Synonyms:
    blaze, flame, flare, flash, flicker, glare, gleam, gleaming, glimmer, glistening, glistering, glitter, illumination, incandescence, light, luster, scintillation, sheen, shimmer, shine, shining, sparkle, twinkle, twinkling

    Antonyms:
    blackness, dark, darkness, dimness, dusk, gloom, gloominess, obscurity, shade, shadow

How to use glow in a sentence?

  1. Ramayana:

    Men hail the rising sun with glee, They love his setting glow to see, But fail to mark that every day In fragments bears their life away.

  2. Emeasoba George:

    Anyone who is loveful is most likely to glow with pride throughout his or her lifetime. But, the reverse is directly the case with anyone who is hateful. So, dare to be loveful if you really want to grow with pride.

  3. Rosa de Winter-Levy:

    ‘I saw Anne Frank and Peter van Pels in Westerbork. They were always together. (…) In Westerbork Anne was lovely, so radiant that her beauty flowed over into Peter. (…) Perhaps it’s not the right expression to say that her eyes were radiant. But they had a glow, if you know what I mean. And her movements, her looks, had such a lilt to them that I often asked myself: Can she possibly be happy? She was happy in Westerbork, though that seems almost incredible.’

  4. Shauna Martin:

    On Martin's quest to prevent recurrence, she started a diet of only raw vegan foods and green juices. I would go to the farmers’ market and just buy everything that I could find and see, and I would juice half, make salads with the other half, and it was amazing how quickly I rebounded from the toxins from all the chemotherapy. My hair grew back quickly, my skin started to really glow— and then the energy, I’d never had that much energy in my entire life. After years of juicing at home, Martin left her corporate job and launched Daily Greens, a national cold-pressed green juice company. I realized what I'm most passionate about in life is trying to make other people healthy, and for me that really starts with a green juice every day, Martin said. Martin continued her mission to motivate others, and published her recipes and personal health plan in her book, Daily Greens, 4-Day Cleanse.

  5. Dejan Stojanovic:

    It is easy to see the glow but hard to recognize the awakening of silence.
