English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. spirit

    Character is what one is; reputation, what he is thought to be; his record is the total of his known action or inaction. As a rule, a man's record will substantially express his character; his reputation may be higher or lower than his character or record will justify. Repute is a somewhat formal word, with the same general sense as reputation. One's nature includes all his original endowments or propensities; character includes both natural and acquired traits. We speak of one's physical constitution as strong or weak, etc., and figuratively, always with the adjective, of his mental or moral constitution. Compare CHARACTERISTIC.

    Synonyms:
    character, constitution, disposition, genius, nature, personality, record, reputation, temper, temperament

    Preposition:
    The witness has a character for veracity; his character is above suspicion; the character of the applicant.

How to use spirit in a sentence?

  1. Albert Schweitzer:

    The spirit of the age is filled with the disdain for thinking.

  2. Bosmat Viner-Shwarzbard:

    Instead of old people's mobility scooters, you're suddenly seeing so many baby's pushchairs rolling along, it's brought a spirit of renewal to the kibbutz. I'm happy that what my grandparents began here will go on.

  3. Darren Clarke:

    This Ryder Cup will be played in the manner in which Davis Love III and I respect each other. We've been friends for such a long time ; I hold Davis in the highest regard... probably one of the best gentlemen in our sport, the Solheim Cup was The Solheim Cup. What Suzann did was correct in The Rules of Golf, but in the spirit of the game, it was wrong. And she admitted that on Monday with hindsight. Hindsight is always a wonderful thing.

  4. Francis Cardinal George, OMI:

    Pentecost is a feast of conversion. Our minds are converted to Christ in faith; and our hearts are converted to His mission in charity. Faith and charity are given with the coming of the Holy Spirit. Everything in the Church is a gift.

  5. Alfred Tennyson, 1st Baron Tennyson:

    It little profits that an idle king,By this still hearth, among these barren crags,Matchd with an aged wife, I mete and doleUnequal laws unto a savage race,That hoard, and sleep, and feed, and know not me. I cannot rest from travel; I will drinkLife to the lees. All times I have enjoydGreatly, have sufferd greatly, both with thoseThat loved me, and alone; on shore, and whenThro scudding drifts the rainy HyadesVext the dim sea. I am become a name;For always roaming with a hungry heartMuch have I seen and known,cities of menAnd manners, climates, councils, governments,Myself not least, but honord of them all,And drunk delight of battle with my peers,Far on the ringing plains of windy Troy. I am a part of all that I have met;Yet all experience is an arch wherethroGleams that untravelld world whose margin fadesFor ever and for ever when I move. How dull it is to pause, to make an end,To rust unburnishd, not to shine in use!As tho to breathe were life! Life piled on lifeWere all too little, and of one to meLittle remains; but every hour is savedFrom that eternal silence, something more,A bringer of new things; and vile it wereFor some three suns to store and hoard myself,And this gray spirit yearning in desireTo follow knowledge like a sinking star,Beyond the utmost bound of human thought. It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles,And see the great Achilles, whom we knew. Tho much is taken, much abides; and thoWe are not now that strength which in old daysMoved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are,One equal temper of heroic hearts,Made weak by time and fate, but strong in willTo strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
