English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. persistence

    Industry is the quality, action, or habit of earnest, steady, and continued attention or devotion to any useful or productive work or task, manual or mental. Assiduity (Latin ad, to, and sedeo, sit), as the etymology suggests, sits down to a task until it is done. Diligence (Latin diligo, love, choose) invests more effort and exertion, with love of the work or deep interest in its accomplishment; application (Latin ad, to, and plico, fold) bends to its work and concentrates all one's powers upon it with utmost intensity; hence, application can hardly be as unremitting as assiduity. Constancy is a steady devotion of heart and principle. Patience works on in spite of annoyances; perseverance overcomes hindrances and difficulties; persistence strives relentlessly against opposition; persistence has very frequently an unfavorable meaning, implying that one persists in spite of considerations that should induce him to desist. Industry is diligence applied to some avocation, business, or profession. Labor and pains refer to the exertions of the worker and the tax upon him, while assiduity, perseverance, etc., refer to his continuance in the work.

    Synonyms:
    application, assiduity, attention, constancy, diligence, effort, exertion, industry, intentness, labor, pains, patience, perseverance, sedulousness

    Antonyms:
    changeableness, fickleness, idleness, inattention, inconstancy, indolence, neglect, negligence, remissness, sloth

How to use persistence in a sentence?

  1. Emeasoba George:

    Persistence guarantees expected result i.e. a satisfactory outcome. Likewise, motivation or inspiration guarantees aspiration or ambition. Thus, endeavour to motivate or inspire someone else, others or the world as a whole as much as you can and as often as you can. ~Emeasoba George

  2. Calvin Coolidge:

    Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

  3. Octavia E. Butler:

    First forget inspiration. Habit is more dependable. Habit will sustain you whether you’re inspired or not. Habit will help you finish and polish your stories. Inspiration won’t. Habit is persistence in practice.

  4. Chika Onuegbu:

    "Courage is not just about bravery. It is also about integrity and persistence to do the right thing against all odds and in the midst of danger. It is not the bravery of a criminal to execute heinous crimes such as suicide bombing, or daredevil armed robbery etc. It is therefore important to point out that the courage we are talking about here is moral courage, which has been described as the essence of leadership." Chika Onuegbu in his 2016 paper titled "The Courage to Stand For Students Union" presented to the Students Union Government of the Rivers State University of Science and Technology.

  5. The Omani Shed:

    Freedom of mind is the ultimate prove of persistence.” A person, whose mind is not free though he may not be in prison, he is a prisoner and not a free man
