  1. treasure

    To cherish is both to hold dear and to treat as dear. Mere unexpressed esteem would not be cherishing. In the marriage vow, "to love, honor, and cherish," the word cherish implies all that each can do by love and tenderness for the welfare and happiness of the other, as by support, protection, care in sickness, comfort in sorrow, sympathy, and help of every kind. To nurse is to tend the helpless or feeble, as infants, or the sick or wounded. To nourish is strictly to sustain and build up by food; to nurture includes careful mental and spiritual training, with something of love and tenderness; to foster is simply to maintain and care for, to bring up; a foster-child will be nourished, but may not be as tenderly nurtured or as lovingly cherished as if one's own. In the figurative sense, the opinion one cherishes he holds, not with mere cold conviction, but with loving devotion.

How to use treasure in a sentence?

  1. Ralph Waldo Emerson:

    It is commonly observed that a sudden wealth, like a prize drawn in a lottery or a large bequest to a poor family, does not permanently enrich. They have served no apprenticeship to wealth, and with the rapid wealth come rapid claims which they do not know how to deny, and the treasure is quickly dissipated.

  2. Anthony D'Angelo:

    Treasure your relationships, not your possessions.

  3. Maria Cecilia Mosquera:

    I treasure each and every photo as the seven hours we had with him, we can never get back -- except through these photos.

  4. James Comeys:

    We'll fight about guns. We'll fight about taxes. We'll fight about all those other things down the road, but you can not have, as President of the United States, someone who does not reflect the values that I believe Republicans treasure and Democrats treasure and independents treasure. United States is the core of this country. United States's United States. And so impeachment, in a way, would short-circuit that.

  5. Hesiod:

    Man's chiefest treasure is a sparing tongue.
