English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. object

    The aim is the direction in which one shoots, or sometimes that which is aimed at. The mark is that at which one shoots; the goal, that toward which one runs. All alike indicate the direction of endeavor. The end is the point at which one expects or hopes to close his labors; the object, that which he would grasp as the reward of his labors. Aspiration, design, endeavor, purpose, referring to the mental acts by which the aim is attained, are often used as interchangeable with aim. Aspiration applies to what are viewed as noble aims; endeavor, design, intention, purpose, indifferently to the best or worst. Aspiration has less of decision than the other terms; one may aspire to an object, and yet lack the fixedness of purpose by which alone it can be attained. Purpose is stronger than intention. Design especially denotes the adaptation of means to an end; endeavor refers to the exertions by which it is to be attained. One whose aims are worthy, whose aspirations are high, whose designs are wise, and whose purposes are steadfast, may hope to reach the goal of his ambition, and will surely win some object worthy of a life's endeavor. Compare AMBITION; DESIGN.

    Synonyms:
    aim, aspiration, design, determination, end, end, endeavor, endeavor, goal, inclination, intent, intention, mark, purpose, tendency

    Antonyms:
    aimlessness, avoidance, carelessness, heedlessness, neglect, negligence, oversight, purposelessness, thoughtlessness

How to use object in a sentence?

  1. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin:

    Evolution is gaining the psychic zones of the world... life, being and ascent of consciousness, could not continue to advance indefinitely along its line without transforming itself in depth. The being who is the object of his own reflection, in consequence, of that very doubling back upon himself becomes in a flash able to raise himself to a new sphere.

  2. Margaret Fuller:

    There are two modes of criticism. One which crushes to earth without mercy all the humble buds of Phantasy, all the plants that, though green and fruitful, are also a prey to insects or have suffered by drought. It weeds well the garden, and cannot believe the weed in its native soil may be a pretty, graceful plant. There is another mode which enters into the natural history of every thing that breathes and lives, which believes no impulse to be entirely in vain, which scrutinizes circumstances, motive and object before it condemns, and believes there is a beauty in natural form, if its law and purpose be understood.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    During my childhood, we were taught by our parents to treat all elderly women as mothers, and younger women as sisters. We were taught to believe that women, just like men, are created in the image of God, and must be treated with love, dignity and respect. These life's lessons from my childhood still remain close to my heart, regardless of time, place or society that I live in. I do hope that we'll continue to teach the same precious lessons to our children, so that they'll also treat every woman with love, dignity and respect - as their own mother or sister or daughter, as a divine image of God, and not as an object of desire to be ogled and fantasized about. In my view, real men always treat women with Equality and Respect they rightfully deserve.

  4. Mica Endsley:

    You might want to set the task for five or six UAVs to go and cover a particular area where they work in conjunction with each other. Maybe one has one type of sensor and the other has another type of sensor — so they could cue each other, if one picked up an object of interest, it could cue another one to go examine it with maybe a different kind of sensor that might a higher resolution. They would be working together to accomplish a particular mission.

  5. Thomas Arnold:

    My object will be, if possible, to form Christian men, for Christian boys I can scarcely hope to make.
