English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. grace

    Mercy is the exercise of less severity than one deserves, or in a more extended sense, the granting of kindness or favor beyond what one may rightly claim. Grace is favor, kindness, or blessing shown to the undeserving; forgiveness, mercy, and pardon are exercised toward the ill-deserving. Pardon remits the outward penalty which the offender deserves; forgiveness dismisses resentment or displeasure from the heart of the one offended; mercy seeks the highest possible good of the offender. There may be mercy without pardon, as in the mitigation of sentence, or in all possible alleviation of necessary severity; there may be cases where pardon would not be mercy, since it would encourage to repetition of the offense, from which timely punishment might have saved. Mercy is also used in the wider sense of refraining from harshness or cruelty toward those who are in one's power without fault of their own; as, they besought the robber to have mercy. Clemency is a colder word than mercy, and without its religious associations, signifying mildness and moderation in the use of power where severity would have legal or military, rather than moral sanction; it often denotes a habitual mildness of disposition on the part of the powerful, and is matter rather of good nature or policy than of principle. Leniency or lenity denotes an easy-going avoidance of severity; these words are more general and less magisterial than clemency; we should speak of the leniency of a parent, the clemency of a conqueror. Compare PITY.

    Synonyms:
    benevolence, benignity, blessing, clemency, compassion, favor, forbearance, forgiveness, gentleness, kindness, lenience, leniency, lenity, mercy, mildness, pardon, pardon, pity, tenderness

    Antonyms:
    cruelty, hardness, harshness, implacability, justice, penalty, punishment, revenge, rigor, severity, sternness, vengeance

    Preposition:
    The mercy of God to or toward sinners; have mercy on or upon one.

How to use grace in a sentence?

  1. Paul Sadler:

    As members of the Body of Christ, each of us have been endowed with a special measure of grace to use in His service. Paul develops this theme in Romans where he states 'For as we have many members in one Body, and all members have not the same office So we, being many, are one Body in Christ, and ever one members one of another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether...ministry, let us wait on our ministering or he that teacheth, on teaching Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity he that ruleth, with diligence he that showeth mercy, with cheerfulness.

  2. George Herbert:

    Lord, with what care hast Thou begirt us round! Parents first season us; then schoolmasters deliver us to laws; they send us bound to rules of reason, holy messengers, pulpits and Sundays, sorrow dogging sin, afflictions sorted, anguish of all sizes, fine nets and stratagems to catch us in, bibles laid open, millions of surprises, blessings beforehand, ties of gratefulness, the sound of glory ringing in our ears: without, our shame; within, our consciences; angels and grace, eternal hopes and fears. Yet all these fences and their whole array one cunning bosom-sin blows quite away.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    About 140+ years ago, on May 20, 1873, the U.S. patent 139,121 covering the invention of 'Jeans' was issued to two American inventors, Jacob Davis and Levi Strauss. Most of the inventors, even today, secretly wish that they had invented Jeans, because of the beauty and grace, coupled with simplicity and comfort, that blue Jeans have created in our world. I love wearing Jeans as casual wear during the weekends. I also think that whenever a celebrity or a beauty or a genius wears jeans, it always makes the most impactful fashion statement.

  4. Max Lucado:

    I guess grace doesn't have to be logical. If it did, it wouldn't be grace.

  5. Tiger Woods:

    When I was growing up, there wasn't anybody on the LPGA Tour, obviously, I loved watching Annika Sorenstam and Grace Park, but as a young child looking to someone I could really relate to and have some kind of connection with, I felt Grace Park was lacking.
