English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. intensity

    The old meaning of enthusiasm implies a pseudo-inspiration, an almost frantic extravagance in behalf of something supposed to be an expression of the divine will. This sense remains as the controlling one in the kindred noun enthusiast. Enthusiasm has now chiefly the meaning of an earnest and commendable devotion, an intense and eager interest. Against the hindrances of the world, nothing great and good can be carried without a certain fervor, intensity, and vehemence; these joined with faith, courage, and hopefulness make enthusiasm. Zeal is burning earnestness, always tending to vigorous action with all the devotion of enthusiasm, tho often without its hopefulness. Compare EAGER.

    Synonyms:
    ardor, devotion, eagerness, earnestness, ecstasy, enthusiasm, excitement, extravagance, fanaticism, fervency, fervor, frenzy, inspiration, passion, rapture, transport, vehemence, warmth, zeal

    Antonyms:
    calculation, calmness, caution, coldness, deadness, dulness, indifference, lukewarmness, policy, prudence, timidity, wariness

How to use intensity in a sentence?

  1. Emeasoba George:

    Death is not actually the worst thing that can happen to any human or anybody. Rather, it is one of the best things that can happen to any human or anyone. Yes! you heard me right as ever, come to think of it (death) logically. If there is no death here (on earth) those who are going through misery, difficulty, hardship or poverty would keep on experiencing it forever or endlessly. Moreover, if there is no death here (on earth) those who are living life of affluence or luxury would keep on enjoying it forever or endlessly. That is to say, death serves or works as a breaking point between the life of affluence (luxury) and life of adversity (misfortune). Besides that, it (death) terminates the severity, acuteness, excessiveness, intensity or climax of everything and everyone. That is that, QED. -Emeasoba George
