English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. mold

    In some cases a thing is spoken of as bent where the parts make an angle; but oftener to bend is understood to be to draw to or through a curve; as, to bend a bow. To submit or yield is to bend the mind humbly to another's wishes. To incline or influence is to bend another's wishes toward our own; to persuade is to draw them quite over. To warp is to bend silently through the whole fiber, as a board in the sun. To crook is to bend irregularly, as a crooked stick. Deflect, deviate, and diverge are said of any turning away; deviate commonly of a slight and gradual movement, diverge of a more sharp and decided one. To bias is to cut across the texture, or incline to one side; in figurative use always with an unfavorable import. Mold is a stronger work than bend; we may bend by a superior force that which still resists the constraint; as, a bent bow; we mold something plastic entirely to some desired form.

    Synonyms:
    bend, bias, bow, crook, curve, deflect, deviate, diverge, incline, influence, persuade, stoop, submit, turn, twine, twist, warp, yield

How to use mold in a sentence?

  1. Prashant Agarwal:

    Humans by nature are always bound to set goals for them which eventually fulfill their needs and desires. It is the force that drives them to achieve more. But moving in the right direction to achieve is usually uncommon because most of the people wish to achieve more in less time and rush to reach the success, thus just work in a cluttered way. To work in the form of a 'Process' is a factor that is not taken into consideration often. The process is something that you need yourself to mold into, to move forward in a coherent manner. Because Process leads you to your goal step by step.

  2. Mark Kirk:

    Hines VA -- the hospital that has been overrun with cockroaches and mold and left vets waiting for care for months on secret wait lists,has reached a new low in thetreatmentof our veterans.

  3. Amandla Stenberg:

    It’s a really, really hard thing to be silenced. And it’s deeply bruising to fight against your identity and to mold yourself into shapes that you just should n’t be in, as someone who identifies as a black, bisexual woman, I’ve been through it, and it’s hurts. It’s awkward and it’s uncomfortable. But then I realized because of Solange [ Knowles ], and Ava DuVerney, and Willow [ Smith ], and all the black girls watching this right now, that there’s absolutely nothing to change.

  4. Terry Gross:

    When you're doing it on your album cover, I think it's a really bold statement, and it's a statement for women, because you are trying to break the mold of what beautiful is.

  5. Ann Wilson:

    It was darn nigh impossible for women in rock in the 70s. There wasn't a mold if you were a woman and you were in the entertainment in the 70s. You were probably a disco diva or a folk singer, or simply ornamental. Radio would play only one woman per hour.
