English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. proclivity

    Appetite is used only of the demands of the physical system, unless otherwise expressly stated, as when we say an appetite for knowledge; passion includes all excitable impulses of our nature, as anger, fear, love, hatred, etc. Appetite is thus more animal than passion; and when we speak of passions and appetites as conjoined or contrasted, we think of the appetites as wholly physical and of the passions as, in part at least, mental or spiritual. We say an appetite for food, a passion for fame. Compare DESIRE.

    Compare ANTIPATHY.

    appetency, appetite, craving, desire, disposition, impulse, inclination, liking, longing, lust, passion, proneness, propensity, relish, thirst, zest

    Preposition:
    He had an insatiable appetite for the marvellous.
