English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. privacy

    In retirement one withdraws from association he has had with others; we speak of the retirement of a public man to private life, tho he may still be much in company. In seclusion one shuts himself away from the society of all except intimate friends or attendants; in solitude no other person is present. While seclusion is ordinarily voluntary, solitude may be enforced; we speak of the solitude rather than the seclusion of a prisoner. As "private" denotes what concerns ourselves individually, privacy denotes freedom from the presence or observation of those not concerned or whom we desire not to have concerned in our affairs; privacy is more commonly temporary than seclusion; we speak of a moment's privacy. There may be loneliness without solitude, as amid an unsympathizing crowd, and solitude without loneliness, as when one is glad to be alone.

    loneliness, retirement, seclusion, solitude

    association, companionship, company, converse, fellowship, society

How to use privacy in a sentence?

  1. Janna Anderson:

    Most experts believe that businesses and governments have little incentive to bolster privacy. This is, in part, because people have proven that they will give away personal information for something as small as a free cup of coffee.

  2. Anna Eshoo:

    I think that my constituent all along had a tug of war going on inside of her, understanding what privacy brought to her, but also the risks of moving over into the public square.

  3. Julie Holland:

    You want to talk enough about sex with them that they are comfortable asking you questions about sex and that they don't have shame around themselves as sexual beings, but your sex life is completely private, and they need to learn about privacy and boundaries, definitely.

  4. H. L. Mencken:

    I believe there is a limit beyond which free speech cannot go, but it's a limit that's very seldom mentioned. It's the point where free speech begins to collide with the right to privacy. I don't think there are any other conditions to free speech. I've got a right to say and believe anything I please, but I haven't got a right to press it on anybody else. ....Nobody's got a right to be a nuisance to his neighbors.

  5. Rand Paul:

    France has a program that invades privacy 1,000 times more without restraint and it didn't stop this.
