English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. zest

    Appetite is used only of the demands of the physical system, unless otherwise expressly stated, as when we say an appetite for knowledge; passion includes all excitable impulses of our nature, as anger, fear, love, hatred, etc. Appetite is thus more animal than passion; and when we speak of passions and appetites as conjoined or contrasted, we think of the appetites as wholly physical and of the passions as, in part at least, mental or spiritual. We say an appetite for food, a passion for fame. Compare DESIRE.

    Compare ANTIPATHY.

How to use zest in a sentence?

  1. AiR Atman in Ravi:

    There is a factor unknown to man... That makes results fail, though he thinks he can. He tries his best with all his zest... But in the end, he fails the test.

  2. Antoine De Saint-Exupery:

    It is in the compelling zest of high adventure and of victory, and in creative action, that man finds his supreme joys.

  3. E. B. White:

    The liberal holds that he is true to the republic when he is true to himself. (It may not be as cozy an attitude as it sounds.) He greets with enthusiasm the fact of the journey, as a dog greets a man's invitation to take a walk. And he acts in the dog's way too, swinging wide, racing ahead, doubling back, covering many miles of territory that the man never traverses, all in the spirit of inquiry and the zest for truth. He leaves a crazy trail, but he ranges far beyond the genteel old party he walks with and he is usually in a better position to discover a skunk.

  4. Robin Gee:

    Takayo has a love and a zest for life and an appreciation for people and every little good thing that happens in her life. So I think her strong spirit and optimistic outlook on life is what carried her through.

  5. Antoine De Saint-Exupery:

    True happiness comes from the joy of deeds well done, the zest of creating things new.
