English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. reserved

    Dumb, mute, silent and speechless refer to fact or state; taciturn refers to habit and disposition. The talkative person may be stricken dumb with surprise or terror; the obstinate may remain mute; one may be silent through preoccupation of mind or of set purpose; but the taciturn person is averse to the utterance of thought or feeling and to communication with others, either from natural disposition or for the occasion. One who is silent does not speak at all; one who is taciturn speaks when compelled, but in a grudging way that repels further approach. Reserved suggests more of method and intention than taciturn, applying often to some special time or topic; one who is communicative regarding all else may be reserved about his business. Reserved is thus closely equivalent to uncommunicative, but is a somewhat stronger word, often suggesting pride or haughtiness, as when we say one is reserved toward inferiors. Compare PRIDE.

    Synonyms:
    close, dumb, mute, reticent, silent, speechless, taciturn, uncommunicative

    Antonyms:
    communicative, free, garrulous, loquacious, talkative, unreserved

    When you read the Bible you will discover that God reserved His harshest condemnation for individuals and nations that practiced idolatry – creating an imaginary god who conformed to a culture’s immorality.

  2. Michael Kugelman:

    We shouldn't overstate the importance of this letter. It may be a case of the Taliban trying to earn some legitimacy and goodwill by playing the role of good guy and proposing nonviolent solutions, at the end of the day, The Taliban has no incentive to propose talks unless it's starting to feel major pressure on the battlefield. Though U.S. forces have ramped up their fight, I think it's too early for The Taliban to suddenly conclude it's not worth fighting anymore. Michael Kugelman said the Taliban offer could nonetheless be useful to the President Trump administration. Even if the letter is just a bluff, and I assume it is, the White House can say - Look, our strategy is already paying off. A spate of bombings last month in Kabul fueled anger against The Taliban across the country, and prompted the President Trump administration to close the doors for peace talks with the Islamic insurgents. Taliban fighters( Copyright 2016 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.) But The Taliban knows President Trump does n’t want the U.S. to be in Special Representative for Afghanistan.

  3. Charles Krauthammer:

    If we insist that public life be reserved for those whose personal history is pristine, we are not going to get paragons of virtue running our affairs.
