English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. wonder

    In the old sense of wonder, admire is practically obsolete; the word now expresses a delight and approval, in which the element of wonder unconsciously mingles. We admire beauty in nature and art, delight in the innocent happiness of children, enjoy books or society, a walk or a dinner. We approve what is excellent, applaud heroic deeds, esteem the good, love our friends. We honor and respect noble character wherever found; we revere and venerate it in the aged. We extol the goodness and adore the majesty and power of God.

    admire, adore, applaud, approve, delight in, enjoy, esteem, esteem, extol, honor, love, respect, revere, venerate

    abhor, abominate, contemn, despise, detest, dislike, execrate, hate, ridicule, scorn

    Admire at may still very rarely be found in the old sense of wonder at.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    I often hear people debating about the glass half-full or half-empty, and I wonder whether they would ever notice a full pitcher sitting right next to that half-full or half-empty glass. In real world, Life offers you millions of wonderful opportunities besides what you already have - sometimes even bigger and better than you have ever dreamt before....just like a full pitcher right around the corner. It's savvy, IMHO, to grab the full pitcher that can fill up your glass several times over, instead of worrying about half-full or half-empty glass that you are holding. So be smart, find that full pitcher, seize it as quickly as you can, and then enjoy the party!

  5. Daisy Bates:

    From without, no wonderful effect is wrought within ourselves, unless some interior, responding wonder meets it.
