English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. virtue

    Virtue (Latin virtus, primarily manly strength or courage, from vir, a man, a hero) is, in its full sense, goodness that is victorious through trial, perhaps through temptation and conflict. Goodness, the being morally good, may be much less than virtue, as lacking the strength that comes from trial and conflict, or it may be very much more than virtue, as rising sublimely above the possibility of temptation and conflict — the infantile as contrasted with the divine goodness. Virtue is distinctively human; we do not predicate it of God. Morality is conformity to the moral law in action, whether in matters concerning ourselves or others, whether with or without right principle. Honesty and probity are used especially of one's relations to his fellow men, probity being to honesty much what virtue in some respects is to goodness; probity is honesty tried and proved, especially in those things that are beyond the reach of legal requirement; above the commercial sense, honesty may be applied to the highest truthfulness of the soul to and with itself and its Maker. Integrity, in the full sense, is moral wholeness without a flaw; when used, as it often is, of contracts and dealings, it has reference to inherent character and principle, and denotes much more than superficial or conventional honesty. Honor is a lofty honesty that scorns fraud or wrong as base and unworthy of itself. Honor rises far above thought of the motto that "honesty is the best policy." Purity is freedom from all admixture, especially of that which debases; it is chastity both of heart and life, but of the life because from the heart. Duty, the rendering of what is due to any person or in any relation, is, in this connection, the fulfilment of moral obligation. Rectitude and righteousness denote conformity to the standard of right, whether in heart or act; righteousness is used especially in the religious sense. Uprightness refers especially to conduct. Virtuousness is a quality of the soul or of action; in the latter sense it is the essence of virtuous action. Compare INNOCENT; JUSTICE; RELIGION.

How to use virtue in a sentence?

  1. Michael Hayden:

    There is some virtue in a superpower having some continuity in its foreign policy.

  2. Baruch Spinoza, The Ethics:

    Blessedness is not the reward of virtue, but virtue itself; neither do we rejoice therein, because we control our lusts, but contrariwise, because we rejoice therein, we are able to control our lusts.

  3. Henry David Thoreau:

    What men call good fellowship is commonly but the virtue of pigs in a litter which lie close together to keep each other warm.

  4. Sallust:

    The glory that goes with wealth and beauty is fleeting and fragile; virtue is a possession glorious and eternal.

  5. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    11. Inspiration - this is absolutely amazing and very beautiful madness. 12. Creativity is like a butterfly flying, light wings of inspiration will help fly away beyond the limits of human understanding. 13. Brilliant inspiration comes by itself, namely, a heart-revelation that gives people insight. This is a very special state of mind. The special state of the creative person. 14. A creative person should make discoveries, not mixes and remixes. 15. Do not imitate, do not admire, but simply excel. 16. Shake reality with your creativity. 17. With each century, the imagination of creative people is becoming uglier and uglier, dumber and dumber. 18. Do not imitate, just dominate. 19. How amusing is this evolution of plagiarism. 20. Creative people try for us, only at the beginning of their careers. In the 20th century, there was more theater in the art of cinema. In the 21st there is more advertising, in the same century, music becomes poorer, the richness of sounds gradually decreases, and the number of lazy patterns increases, and painting becomes meaningless and not aesthetic. But everyone is trying to convince you of the opposite, they say they are authorities, and your opinion does not mean anything. 21. Creativity is an alternative universe. 22. Do not break the balance between idea and quality. Since quality is a beautiful density, the pleasure of misunderstanding, because the idea is drowning in quality, and people can not understand your creative work. Whereas a noble idea is a truth that makes everything transparent, and passes through us and gives us genuine pleasure and inspiration from the catharsis of insight. 23. Pride and vanity confuse science and art. 24. 1. Scientific research is at an impasse, because one scientific researcher, by virtue of his pride, will never agree with the opinion of his colleague from the same field of science. Even the most intellectually developed person does not see the whole truth, he only assumes that is (theories and hypotheses), assumption and endless variations of interpretation speak of ignorance. Many researchers have stopped discovering anything really important, they only rephrase the scientific work of each other. The thirst to see and know what really is, and not what you want to see, this is science. 2. What is a library is a collection of opinions, reading any book, throughout the book you are told about the same idea, consisting of only one sentence or phrase. No matter how much you read, it is important how much you understand. 25. 1. Psychology is hacking designed to learn how to manage people. 2. Psychology is a giant drill. 26. Never trust science. Believe the facts, what the teleportator and the time machine show. 27. Fate controls a person using a game joystick. 28. Human thinking is a hierarchy of feelings and emotions, from the darkest and lowest to the lightest and highest. 29. The evil comedy of life is that every new person is a new crack in your psyche. 30. The reading person is a brain eater. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
