English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. verse

    Euphony is agreeable linguistic sound, however produced; meter, measure, and rhythm denote agreeable succession of sounds in the utterance of connected words; euphony may apply to a single word or even a single syllable; the other words apply to lines, sentences, paragraphs, etc.; rhythm and meter may be produced by accent only, as in English, or by accent and quantity combined, as in Greek or Italian; rhythm or measure may apply either to prose or to poetry, or to music, dancing, etc.; meter is more precise than rhythm, applies only to poetry, and denotes a measured rhythm with regular divisions into verses, stanzas, strophes, etc. A verse is strictly a metrical line, but the word is often used as synonymous with stanza. Verse, in the general sense, denotes metrical writing without reference to the thought involved; as, prose and verse. Compare MELODY; POETRY.

  1. André Maurois:

    A great biography should, like the close of a great drama, leave behind it a feeling of serenity. We collect into a small bunch the flowers, the few flowers, which brought sweetness into a life, and present it as an offering to an accomplished destiny. It is the dying refrain of a completed song, the final verse of a finished poem.

  2. Steve Bouma-Prediger:

    In my college religion classes, I sometimes quote 2 Hesitations 4:3 ('There are no internal combustion engines in heaven'), i wait to see if anyone realizes that there is no such book in the Bible and therefore no such verse.

  3. Lee Strasberg:

    A great actor is independent of the poet; because the supreme essence of feeling does not reside in the prose or in verse, but in the accent with which it is delivered.

  4. David Dodd:

    That verse strengthened and encouraged me during my most difficult times in combat, training, and it comforts me each day of my life, i know it will do the same for those nursing the sick, injured, and wounded in New York City hospitals.

  5. Dina Hackert:

    This verse had been written on my shoestring from the first day of the season, it wasn't a mindless quote, and frankly theology wasn't on my mind as a 21-year-old college athlete.
