English Synonyms and Antonyms
The efficient cause, that which makes anything to be or be done, is the common meaning of the word, as in the saying "There is no effect without a cause." Every man instinctively recognizes himself acting through will as the cause of his own actions. The Creator is the Great First Cause of all things. A condition is something that necessarily precedes a result, but does not produce it. An antecedent simply precedes a result, with or without any agency in producing it; as, Monday is the invariable antecedent of Tuesday, but not the cause of it. The direct antonym of cause is effect, while that of antecedent is consequent. An occasion is some event which brings a cause into action at a particular moment; gravitation and heat are the causes of an avalanche; the steep incline of the mountain-side is a necessary condition, and the shout of the traveler may be the occasion of its fall. Causality is the doctrine or principle of causes, causation the action or working of causes. Compare DESIGN; REASON.
The cause of the disaster; cause for interference.

I trust her with my life, and have on more than one occasion.
Life is never static, and that's what I Think is the most beautiful aspect of Life. Life is beautiful because it is dynamic; because of her ups and downs, twists and bends, and ebbs and flows in general. Nothing is permanent ever, and only constant is the constant change. 'Even this shall pass!' is the mantra, and also a constant reminder for us, on every occasion when we feel very excited with life's flows, and during the darkest moments when we feel down and out with life's ebbs. The successes, disappointments, friendships, betrayals, helplessness, happiness and loneliness etc, all these will pass away, as the life moves on. So enjoy today, especially this moment and the power of 'Now.' Cheers!
