English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. pride

    Haughtiness thinks highly of itself and poorly of others. Arrogance claims much for itself and concedes little to others. Pride is an absorbing sense of one's own greatness; haughtiness feels one's own superiority to others; disdain sees contemptuously the inferiority of others to oneself. Presumption claims place or privilege above one's right; pride deems nothing too high. Insolence is open and rude expression of contempt and hostility, generally from an inferior to a superior, as from a servant to a master or mistress. In the presence of superiors overweening pride manifests itself in presumption or insolence; in the presence of inferiors, or those supposed to be inferior, pride manifests itself by arrogance, disdain, haughtiness, superciliousness, or in either case often by cold reserve. (See RESERVE under MODESTY.) Pride is too self-satisfied to care for praise; vanity intensely craves admiration and applause. Superciliousness, as if by the uplifted eyebrow, as its etymology suggests (Latin supercilium, eyebrow, from super, over and cilium, eyelid), silently manifests mingled haughtiness and disdain. Assumption quietly takes for granted superiority and privilege which others would be slow to concede. Conceit and vanity are associated with weakness, pride with strength. Conceit may be founded upon nothing; pride is founded upon something that one is, or has, or has done; vanity, too, is commonly founded on something real, tho far slighter than would afford foundation for pride. Vanity is eager for admiration and praise, is elated if they are rendered, and pained if they are withheld, and seeks them; pride could never solicit admiration or praise. Conceit is somewhat stronger than self-conceit. Self-conceit is ridiculous; conceit is offensive. Self-respect is a thoroughly worthy feeling; self-esteem is a more generous estimate of one's own character and abilities than the rest of the world are ready to allow. Vainglory is more pompous and boastful than vanity. Compare EGOTISM; OSTENTATION.

How to use pride in a sentence?

  1. Baha'u'llah:

    It is not for him to pride himself who loveth his own country, but rather for him who loveth the whole world. The earth is but one country and mankind its citizens.

  2. R. Lucret:

    “Reading Aberjhani's poems will leave you swimming in thoughts of completeness. To see and hear the voice of another human being express such quality of life, such peacefulness in thought, such pride in character is beyond words… It's a true sign to the talent and gift he has when it comes to constructing words in such a way that leaves you feeling like a certain thirst has been quenched… It is a validation to the simple task of being human, of feeling love in small spaces, in odd and familiar places, in dreams and in thoughts.”

  3. Emeasoba George:

    To love all or to live for others is never onerous i.e. it doesn't require a great deal of effort. Yes! what it takes is just to swallow up your own pride/interest/comfort/right and as well to realize that life is not meant to be all about you. In other words, you should be considerate of someone else's/other people's needs/interest/well-being/welfare.

  4. Richard Milhous Nixon:

    Because of what you have done the heavens have become a part of man's world. And as you talk to us from the Sea of Tranquillity, it inspires us to redouble our efforts to bring peace and Tranquillity to Earth. For one priceless moment, in the whole history of man, all the people on this Earth are truly one. One in their pride in what you have done. One in our prayers that you will return safely to Earth.

  5. Joe Arpaio:

    The last four years have proven to be a time of lost opportunities to continue the kind of tough policing Maricopa County needs, once back in office, I will use my position to restore pride to our law enforcement ranks, not only here, in the fourth-largest county in America, but across the country.
