English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. retirement

    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.

    Synonyms:
    loneliness, privacy, seclusion, solitude

    Antonyms:
    association, companionship, company, converse, fellowship, society

How to use retirement in a sentence?

  1. Jeremy Taylor:

    Adultery itself in its principle is many times nothing but a curious inquisition after, and envy of another man's enclosed pleasures: and there have been many who refused fairer objects that they might ravish an enclosed woman from her retirement and single possessor.

  2. Jeb Bush:

    I think we need to raise the retirement age, not for people that are already nearing, receiving Social Security, or already on it, but raise it gradually, over a long period of time for people that are just entering the system. And I think we need to do that in relatively short order.

  3. Jennifer Friedman:

    Proposals such as raising the eligibility age for Medicare and changing the way Social Security retirement benefits are indexed to inflation are non-starters for the administration and Democrats in Congress.

  4. Matthew Greenwald:

    People do a poor job of understanding how much they will need for a retirement that could last a long time - and many don’t understand the basics of what their expenses will be in retirement.

  5. Bill Vaughan:

    Retirement, we understand, is great if you are busy, rich, and healthy. But then, under those conditions, work is great too.
