English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. symmetry

    When tones, thoughts, or feelings, individually different, combine to form a consistent and pleasing whole, there is harmony. Harmony is deeper and more essential than agreement; we may have a superficial, forced, or patched-up agreement, but never a superficial, forced, or patched-up harmony. Concord is less full and spiritual than harmony. Concord implies more volition than accord; as, their views were found to be in perfect accord; or, by conference concord was secured; we do not secure accord, but discover it. We may speak of being in accord with a person on one point, but harmony is wider in range. Conformity is correspondence in form, manner, or use; the word often signifies submission to authority or necessity, and may be as far as possible from harmony; as, the attempt to secure conformity to an established religion. Congruity involves the element of suitableness; consistency implies the absence of conflict or contradiction in views, statements, or acts which are brought into comparison, as in the different statements of the same person or the different periods of one man's life; unanimity is the complete hearty agreement of many; consent and concurrence refer to decision or action, but consent is more passive than concurrence; one speaks by general consent when no one in the assembly cares to make formal objection; a decision of the Supreme Court depends upon the concurrence of a majority of the judges. Compare AGREE; FRIENDSHIP; MELODY.

    Synonyms:
    accord, accordance, agreement, amity, concord, concurrence, conformity, congruity, consent, consistency, consonance, harmony, unanimity, uniformity, union, unison, unity

    Antonyms:
    antagonism, battle, conflict, contention, contest, controversy, difference, disagreement, discord, disproportion, dissension, disunion, hostility, incongruity, inconsistency, opposition, schism, separation, variance, warfare

How to use symmetry in a sentence?

  1. Charles Lamb:

    Borrowers of books --those mutilators of collections, spoilers of the symmetry of shelves, and creators of odd volumes.

    I mean your borrowers of books - those mutilators of collections, spoilers of the symmetry of shelves, and creators of odd volumes.

  3. Primo Levi:

    The butterfly's attractiveness derives not only from colors and symmetry: deeper motives contribute to it. We would not think them so beautiful if they did not fly, or if they flew straight and briskly like bees, or if they stung, or above all if they did not enact the perturbing mystery of metamorphosis: the latter assumes in our eyes the value of a badly decoded message, a symbol, a sign.

  4. Ahmedin Jemal:

    One factor that could contribute to the increase is this desire for symmetry, another factor is probably the Angelina Jolie effect. She was diagnosed with the BRCA-1 cancer gene that mutation that causes breast cancer, and she had a double mastectomy, so that was covered widely in the media.

  5. David Paleologos:

    The poll's symmetry of mutual concern is a new phenomenon — though not exactly balanced. When gay marriage supporters were asked whether they respect their opponents, 70% said yes. Just 61% of gay marriage opponents said the same. Compassion is not yet equally contagious.
