English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. let go

    To surrender is to give up upon compulsion, as to an enemy in war, hence to give up to any person, passion, influence, or power. To yield is to give place or give way under pressure, and hence under compulsion. Yield implies more softness or concession than surrender; the most determined men may surrender to overwhelming force; when one yields, his spirit is at least somewhat subdued. A monarch or a state cedes territory perhaps for a consideration; surrenders an army, a navy, or a fortified place to a conqueror; a military commander abandons an untenable position or unavailable stores. We sacrifice something precious through error, friendship, or duty, yield to convincing reasons, a stronger will, winsome persuasion, or superior force. Compare ABANDON.

    Synonyms:
    abandon, alienate, capitulate, cede, give, give oneself up, give over, give up, relinquish, sacrifice, surrender, yield

How to use let go in a sentence?

  1. Aaron Blackwell:

    Oh, it's not going to be let go.

  2. Christine Simmons:

    Tolers lawyer Dawn Collins told The Associated Press, referring to Tolers postgame comments. Coaches speak to their players to get them fired up, many coaches use harsher language and far more controversial language. If the term is not OK, its not OK for everyone. But Toler said initially Eric Holoman had publicly dismissed accounts Eric Holoman or Sparks players were offended by her language and that only later when the decision came under scrutiny that she was let go because of the outburst. It is unclear who within the Sparks organization Toler registered her complaints with about the alleged Simmons-Holoman relationship. However, Toler said in the suit that even after Christine Simmons left the organization in 2018 Christine Simmons had influence on decisions the team would make because of Christine Simmons personal relationship with Eric Holoman. Toler said Christine Simmons was looking into trading Parker, but because Christine Simmons and Parker were close Eric Holoman wouldnt let Christine Simmons make a deal. I wasnt part of the clique, Toler told the AP. Every day people would have no idea what I went through here working for the Sparks after they were acquired by this ownership.

  3. Spanish Proverb:

    Take hold lightly let go lightly. This is one of the great secrets of felicity in love.

  4. Raymond Lindquist:

    Courage is the power to let go of the familiar.

  5. Sipho P Nkosi:

    We may only forget and truly let go, if we expunge some memories.
