English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. resolution

    Fortitude (Latin fortis, strong) is the strength or firmness of mind or soul to endure pain or adversity patiently and determinedly. Fortitude has been defined as "passive courage," which is a good definition, but not complete. Fortitude might be termed "still courage," or "enduring courage;" it is that quality which is able not merely to endure pain or trial, but steadily to confront dangers that can not be actively opposed, or against which one has no adequate defense; it takes courage to charge a battery, fortitude to stand still under an enemy's fire. Resolution is of the mind; endurance is partly physical; it requires resolution to resist temptation, endurance to resist hunger and cold. Compare BRAVE; PATIENCE.

    Synonyms:
    courage, endurance, fortitude, heroism

How to use resolution in a sentence?

  1. Mike Stratton:

    The melanoma had something like 25,000 mutations, which was more than the world had ever seen in one genome, we could really see the signatures of the exposures that had taken place at an incredibly fine-grained resolution, and we could see all sorts of features and nuances that we hadn't noticed before.

  2. Bartlett Naylor:

    Any resolution for Wells Fargo's massive, management-directed misconduct must hold individuals to account. We know many of the crimes, and we know that real executives, not some ghost in a machine, committed them.

  3. Spokesman Eric Schultz:

    The US did not draft this resolution nor did The US introduce this resolution, the Egyptians, in partnership with the Palestinians, are the ones who began circulating an earlier draft of The Egyptians are the ones who moved it forward on Friday.And President Obama and Kerry took the position that President Obama and Kerry did when it was put to a vote. State John Kerry also said in a statement after Friday's vote : Today, the United States acted with one primary objective in mind : to preserve the possibility of the two state solution, which every U.S. administration for decades has agreed is the only way to achieve a just and lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians.... As a lifelong friend of The Israelis, I have taken every opportunity to speak out, or cast a vote, to protect The Israelis security and the chance for a peaceful future. The Israelis tried to appeal to Trump last week to help head off the U.N. settlement resolution. While the vote was only delayed to Friday, Trump has resumed his criticism of the international body and vowed changes.

  4. John Kerry:

    The Palestinians've made no determinations about language, approaches, specific resolutions, any of that, this isn't the time to detail private conversations or speculate on a U.N. Security Council resolution that hasn't even been tabled no matter what pronouncements are made publicly about it.

  5. Samuel Smiles:

    Where there is a will there is a way," is an old and true saying. He who resolves upon doing a thing, by that very resolution often scales the barriers to it, and secures its achievement. To think we are able, is almost to be so - to determine upon attainment is frequently attainment itself.
