English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. license

    In general terms, it may be said that freedom is absolute, liberty relative; freedom is the absence of restraint, liberty is primarily the removal or avoidance of restraint; in its broadest sense, it is the state of being exempt from the domination of others or from restricting circumstances. Freedom and liberty are constantly interchanged; the slave is set at liberty, or gains his freedom; but freedom is the nobler word. Independence is said of states or nations, freedom and liberty of individuals; the independence of the United States did not secure liberty or freedom to its slaves. Liberty keeps quite strictly to the thought of being clear of restraint or compulsion; freedom takes a wider range, applying to other oppressive influences; thus, we speak of freedom from annoyance or intrusion. License is, in its limited sense, a permission or privilege granted by adequate authority, a bounded liberty; in the wider sense, license is an ignoring and defiance of all that should restrain, and a reckless doing of all that individual caprice or passion may choose to do — a base and dangerous counterfeit of freedom. Compare ALLOW; PERMISSION.

How to use license in a sentence?

    It could be significant for certain companies, in terms of whether that would lead to (license) denials, who knows? But it would be an additional hurdle to jump through for a U.S. company to sell to commercial end users in China.

  2. Jarred Evans:

    Jarred Evans holed up in Jarred Evans home for a week and a half until Jarred Evans received the news that the U.S. Embassy was evacuating its diplomats and their families and other U.S. citizens. Jarred Evans was notified that a chartered flight would carry some of the 1,000 or so Americans in Wuhan back to the United States the next day. An acquaintance who drove Jarred Evans to the airport and U.S. officials notified Chinese authorities of the license plate number so that the car was allowed to drive on the streets.

  4. Benjamin Black:

    If they lost the London license, that would be a major blow... but we just don't see it happening, is there going to be another 15-18 month renewal or is it going to be five years?
