English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. supreme

    In the strict sense, absolute, free from all limitation or control, and supreme, superior to all, can not properly be said of any being except the divine. Both words are used, however, in a modified sense, of human authorities; absolute then signifying free from limitation by other authority, and supreme exalted over all other; as, an absolute monarch, the supreme court. Absolute, in this use, does not necessarily carry any unfavorable sense, but as absolute power in human hands is always abused, the unfavorable meaning predominates. Autocratic power knows no limits outside the ruler's self; arbitrary power, none outside the ruler's will or judgment, arbitrary carrying the implication of wilfulness and capriciousness. Despotic is commonly applied to a masterful or severe use of power, which is expressed more decidedly by tyrannical. Arbitrary may be used in a good sense; as, the pronunciation of proper names is arbitrary; but the bad sense is the prevailing one; as, an arbitrary proceeding. Irresponsible power is not necessarily bad, but eminently dangerous; an executor or trustee should not be irresponsible; an irresponsible ruler is likely to be tyrannical. A perfect ruler might be irresponsible and not tyrannical. Authoritative is used always in a good sense, implying the right to claim authority; imperative, peremptory, and positive are used ordinarily in the good sense; as, an authoritative definition; an imperative demand; a peremptory command; positive instructions; imperious signifies assuming and determined to command, rigorously requiring obedience. An imperious demand or requirement may have in it nothing offensive; it is simply one that resolutely insists upon compliance, and will not brook refusal; an arrogant demand is offensive by its tone of superiority, an arbitrary demand by its unreasonableness; an imperious disposition is liable to become arbitrary and arrogant. A person of an independent spirit is inclined to resent an imperious manner in any one, especially in one whose superiority is not clearly recognized. Commanding is always used in a good sense; as, a commanding appearance; a commanding eminence. Compare DOGMATIC; INFINITE; PERFECT.

How to use supreme in a sentence?

  1. Benjamin Dictor:

    What I can say about what transpired in this building today is that there was demonstration that our processes, our legal processes still work. The judicial system still works. No one is above the law. Donald John Trump sat in a chair, put Donald John Trump right hand up and Donald John Trump took an oath, Donald John Trump took an oath to tell the truth. And nothing but the truth. And Donald John Trump answered questions for several hours with Donald John Trump counsel present and that is part of what we call due process in this country, and maybe some of us forget that that applies to everyone, in the course of the last several years but I think today serves as a demonstration that our institutions are intact and the rule of law is supreme above all else in this country.

  2. Jimmy Carter:

    I thought, whether or not he attempted to rape [ Christine Blasey Ford ], whether or not, I thought he was temperamentally unfit to serve on Supreme Court because of his outburst during the hearing.

  3. Paige Fiedler:

    I always thought that having a female justice on the Iowa Supreme Court would have helped the judges understand what it’s like to be a woman in the work place.

  4. Steve Vladeck:

    Federal anti-discrimination laws were always going to be the next battleground after the Supreme Court's gay marriage decision, and in some respect, these laws are even more important, because they also apply to private parties -- such as employers.

  5. Nancy Pelosi:

    What William Barr saw on the part of The Trump administration with the citizenship question, it's disgraceful, the Supreme Court did not rule in their favor because they said The Trump administration did not give sufficient evidence as to why the census citizenship question should be there.
