English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. upright

    One who is honest in the ordinary sense acts or is always disposed to act with careful regard for the rights of others, especially in matters of business or property; one who is honorable scrupulously observes the dictates of a personal honor that is higher than any demands of mercantile law or public opinion, and will do nothing unworthy of his own inherent nobility of soul. The honest man does not steal, cheat, or defraud; the honorable man will not take an unfair advantage that would be allowed him, or will make a sacrifice which no one could require of him, when his own sense of right demands it. One who is honest in the highest and fullest sense is scrupulously careful to adhere to all known truth and right even in thought. In this sense honest differs from honorable as having regard rather to absolute truth and right than to even the highest personal honor. Compare CANDID; JUSTICE.

    candid, equitable, fair, faithful, frank, genuine, good, honest, honorable, ingenuous, just, sincere, straightforward, true, trustworthy, trusty

    Antonyms:
    deceitful, dishonest, disingenuous, faithless, false, fraudulent, hypocritical, lying, mendacious, perfidious, traitorous, treacherous, unfaithful, unscrupulous, untrue

How to use upright in a sentence?

  1. Doris Lessing:

    All sanity depends on this that is should be a delight to feel heat strike the skin, a delight to stand upright, knowing the bones are moving easily under the flesh.

  2. Mehmet Murat ildan:

    The greatest victory for man is not that his dreams were fulfilled but it is that to stand upright even when none of his dreams were fulfilled!

  3. Michael Gresty:

    The reason that we can't understand these motions; the brain if you like can't understand these motions, is that there's continual conflict between what is upright and whether you should lean to balance yourself in the environment or whether you're actually experiencing a sideways acceleration force. You imagine being on a bicycle or a motorbike; you go round a corner, you lean into the corner which remains perfectly upright in physics. You don't so that in a car, you don't do that on a ship - you're actually struggling to find out what is upright and what's the best way of dealing with it.

  4. Benjamin Franklin:

    Educate your children to self-control, to the habit of holding passion and prejudice and evil tendencies subject to an upright and reasoning will, and you have done much to abolish misery from their future and crimes from society.

  5. Aesop:

    The little reed, bending to the force of the wind, soon stood upright again when the storm had passed over.
