English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. silver

    Money is the authorized medium of exchange; coined money is called coin or specie. What are termed in England bank-notes are in the United States commonly called bills; as, a five-dollar bill. The notes of responsible men are readily transferable in commercial circles, but they are not money; as, the stock was sold for $500 in money and the balance in merchantable paper. Cash is specie or money in hand, or paid in hand; as, the cash account; the cash price. In the legal sense, property is not money, and money is not property; for property is that which has inherent value, while money, as such, has but representative value, and may or may not have intrinsic value. Bullion is either gold or silver uncoined, or the coined metal considered without reference to its coinage, but simply as merchandise, when its value as bullion may be very different from its value as money. The word capital is used chiefly of accumulated property or money invested in productive enterprises or available for such investment.

    We have a healthcare system that’s built around the needs of the healthcare system and not the needs of the family, we have an aging society, and we have little time to deal with the silver tsunami we’re not ready for.

  3. Jamela Dunbar:

    Money and power is the biggest rat race in our nation today. It is the root of every evil, to gain more control over the poor to keep them in castration. In these modern times, money and power rules. Starting from the top to the bottom, of the hierarchy. Both coming from old money and new money. The split between being born rich with a silver spoon in your mouth, or being born poor living in Ghetto. Or the unforeseen fortune of the poor moving from rags to riches. To eat from the same rich man's plate.”

  4. Sarah Silverman:

    But I will say—and I hope this is OK to say—that after I did that [monologue], he called me. And he said it really helped one of his daughters to understand. She showed it to him and she said, I can love you even though you did bad things. And we cried. It was a small silver lining in a very bleak story.

  5. Mehmet Murat ildan:

    Are you looking for gold, friend? Look around you; anything useful to you is pure gold, pure silver!
