English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. willing

    That is spontaneous which is freely done, with no external compulsion and, in human actions, without special premeditation or distinct determination of the will; that is voluntary which is freely done with distinct act of will; that is involuntary which is independent of the will, and perhaps in opposition to it; a willing act is not only in accordance with will, but with desire. Thus voluntary and involuntary, which are antonyms of each other, are both partial synonyms of spontaneous. We speak of spontaneous generation, spontaneous combustion, spontaneous sympathy, an involuntary start, an unbidden tear, voluntary agreement, willing submission. A babe's smile in answer to that of its mother is spontaneous; the smile of a pouting child wheedled into good humor is involuntary. In physiology the action of the heart and lungs is called involuntary; the growth of the hair and nails is spontaneous; the action of swallowing is voluntary up to a certain point, beyond which it becomes involuntary or automatic. In the fullest sense of that which is not only without the will but distinctly in opposition to it, or compulsory, involuntary becomes an antonym, not only of voluntary but of spontaneous; as, involuntary servitude. A spontaneous outburst of applause is of necessity an act of volition, but so completely dependent on sympathetic impulse that it would seem frigid to call it voluntary, while to call it involuntary would imply some previous purpose or inclination not to applaud.

    Synonyms:
    automatic, free, impulsive, instinctive, involuntary, spontaneous, unbidden, voluntary

  2. Prashant Agarwal:

    Nothing in life is easy, you may be facing several problems & you may be suffering from pain, which you think no one can understand. You might have little resources but you cannot achieve anything unless you strive for it & try for it. You need to be committed to your goals; you need to be passionate for getting success in the field of your interest. Every day is a new day, bringing you new opportunities. And if you are responsible and aware of your needs, and are willing to perform and take all the necessary steps that are required for you to achieve your goal, then trust me nothing can stop you. You need to be like that lion who is hungry and is waiting for his prey and whose roar is loud enough for his enemies to know that he won’t compromise for anything unless he gets it. It's just one life and you need to make the most out of it. Don’t compromise on it for temporary reasons and worries. You need to realize that you might face several challenges, might go through circumstances which are difficult to deal with, which might break you, make you fall hard on the ground but each time when you stand again you would be stronger than before. Admit your mistakes and be willing to improvise and rectify the things that went wrong earlier to get better results next time. Be planned enough, be responsible for each action that you take, be committed so that nothing can break you. Be passionate so that nothing can stop you & keep on performing irrespective of all your failures.
