English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. recompense(n)

    An allowance is a stipulated amount furnished at regular intervals as a matter of discretion or gratuity, as of food to besieged soldiers, or of money to a child or ward. Compensation is a comprehensive word signifying a return for a service done. Remuneration is applied to matters of great amount or importance. Recompense is a still wider and loftier word, with less suggestion of calculation and market value; there are services for which affection and gratitude are the sole and sufficient recompense; earnings, fees, hire, pay, salary, and wages are forms of compensation and may be included in compensation, remuneration, or recompense. Pay is commercial and strictly signifies an exact pecuniary equivalent for a thing or service, except when the contrary is expressly stated, as when we speak of "high pay" or "poor pay." Wages denotes what a worker receives. Earnings is often used as exactly equivalent to wages, but may be used with reference to the real value of work done or service rendered, and even applied to inanimate things; as, the earnings of capital. Hire is distinctly mercenary or menial, but as a noun has gone out of popular use, tho the verb to hire is common. Salary is for literary or professional work, wages for handicraft or other comparatively inferior service; a salary is regarded as more permanent than wages; an editor receives a salary, a compositor receives wages. Stipend has become exclusively a literary word. A fee is given for a single service or privilege, and is sometimes in the nature of a gratuity. Compare REQUITE.

    Synonyms:
    allowance, compensation, earnings, fee, hire, honorarium, pay, payment, remuneration, requital, salary, stipend, wages

How to use recompense in a sentence?

  1. Ahmed Moosa:

    I have always had doubts about the Saudi family. I always suspected that they are hypocrites and this is now confirmed with what they are doing with this Un-Islamic blockade. These Saudis are from the stock of desert Arabs and are no different from the time of the Messenger of Allâh. Please note I am referring to the leadership known as the Saudi family, not the people of Arabia, which is the proper name of that area mentioned in the Divine Book. Sissi is the same, an enemy of Islam and a hypocrite in the extreme. He is in bed with the yahud and proud of that. He toppled a good man Muhammad Morsi who is a Muslim who I respect. These evil persons do not truly believe in Al-Qur’ân because if they did they would fear the warnings in Allâh’s Book, but because they don’t they do what they want. I quote the following verses from the Divine Book, Al-Qur’ân that I feel are appropriate to these Munafikoon: Surah number 9 ayah 101. “Certain of the desert Arabs round about you are Hypocrites, as well as (desert Arabs) among the Medina folk: they are obstinate in hypocrisy: thou knowest them not: WE (i.e. Allâh) know them: twice shall WE (i.e. Allâh) punish them: and in addition shall they be sent to a grievous penalty.” Surah Munafikoon number 63 ayah 4. “When thou lookest at them, their exteriors please thee; and when they speak thou listenest to their words. They are as (worthless as hollow) pieces of timber propped up, (unable to stand on their own). They think that every cry is against them. They are the enemies; so beware of them. The curse of Allâh be on them! How are they deluded (away from the Truth)!” Surah number 5 verse 32. “On that account: WE (i.e. Allâh) ordained for the Children of Israel that if any one slew a person - unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief In the land - it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came to them Our (i.e. Allâh’s) messengers with Clear Signs (ayat) , yet, even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses In the land.” Surah 6 ayah 151. “Say: Come, I (i.e. Muhammad) will rehearse what Allâh hath (really) prohibited you from: join not anything as equal with him; be good to your parents; kill not your children on a plea of want;- WE (i.e. Allâh) provide sustenance for you and for them;- come not nigh to shameful deeds, whether open or secret; take not life, which Allâh hath made sacred, except by way of justice and law: thus doth HE (i.e. Allâh) command you, that ye may learn wisdom.” These Munafikoon are destined for hell because the Saudis are killing believers in Yemen, Sissi is killing them in Egypt etc. Surah 4 ayah 93. “If a person kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell, to abide therein (for ever): and the wrath and the curse of Allâh are upon him, and a dreadful penalty is prepared for him.”

  2. Montaigne:

    Books are pleasant, but if by being over-studious we impair our health and spoil our good humour, two of the best things we have, let us give it over. I, for my part, am one of those who think no fruit derived from them can recompense so great a loss.

  3. Confucius:

    Recompense injury with justice, and recompense kindness with kindness.

  4. Emeasoba George:

    Every action or inaction has a recompense or a consequence. Yes! thus, do what you have to do when you ought to do it and never do what you don't have to do when you shouldn't do it. ~Emeasoba George

  5. Emeasoba George:

    La fin de quelque chose ou tout décompte humains de plus que son, son début. Oui bien sûr, ce ne est que lui ou elle qui persévérera jusqu'à la fin ou détient plutôt ferme à sa foi qui sera enregistrée au dernier. En outre, ce est la fin d'une vision, aspiration ou un rêve qui prouve que ce soit ordinaire ou extraordinaire, vrai ou faux. En outre, ce est lui ou elle qui persévère et persiste jusqu'à la fin qui peuvent et vont sauter ou récolter la récompense pour le travail dur-à-dire un véritable succès. De même, il il est atteint ou franchit la ligne d'arrivée qui émerge un gagnant dans une course finalement. D'ailleurs, ce est vos dernières pensées, paroles et actions qui détermineront votre salut ou la damnation sur le jour du jugement. En fait, il est préférable pour vous de commencer quoi que ce soit en mal ou quelque chose et ensuite finissez bien en elle. Que pour vous de bien commencer en quelque chose ou quoi que ce soit et ensuite finissez mal en elle. Pour que entraînera rien d'autre, mais une tragédie. Quoi qu'il en soit, toutes les illustrations ci-dessus signifie évidemment que, la fin du ne importe quoi, quelque chose ou tout être humain compte vraiment plus que sa, Hisor son début. Par conséquent, je vous exhorte à être plus préoccupés par ce que sera votre fin ou la fin de quelque chose ou quelqu'un plutôt que votre, son, son début. Parce que, sûrement la fin de tout, humain et la matière est toujours la BOTTOM LINE. Vous pouvez dire que je le dis QED.
