Attested Synonym quotes by Roy Peter Clark
#1. A teacher of mine once said there are no true synonyms. #Quote by Roy Peter Clark
Attested Synonym quotes by William Blackstone
#2. To deny the possibility, nay, the actual existence of witchcraft and sorcery, is at once flatly to contradict the revealed word of God in various passages both of the Old and New Testament, and the thing itself is a Truth to which every nation in the world hath, in its turn, borne testimony, by either example seemingly well attested or by prohibitory laws, which at least suppose the possibility of a commerce with evil spirits. #Quote by William Blackstone
Attested Synonym quotes by Arianna Huffington
#3. We'll have to reclaim the ward 'taxes.' Why has it become a synonym for 'evil'? I understand that no one likes to pay good money for nothing. But fire and police protection aren't nothing ... Roads, bridges, airports, and mass transit systems aren't nothing. National parks, clean air, and clear water aren't nothing. A safe food supply, functioning schools with well-trained teachers, and well-equipped hospitals aren't vaporous apparitions either. #Quote by Arianna Huffington

#4. love is just a synonym for absinthe.
absinthe is a synonym for 'i don't
know what i'm doing anymore. #Quote by Salma Deera
Attested Synonym quotes by Germaine Greer
#5. The stereotype is the Eternal Feminine. She is the Sexual Object sought by all men, and by all woman. She is of neither sex, for she has herself no sex at all. Her value is solely attested by the demand she excites in others. #Quote by Germaine Greer
Attested Synonym quotes by Gregory A. Boyd
#6. Another form of prayer, called cataphatic, honors and reverences images and feelings and goes through them to God. This form of prayer also has an ancient and well-attested history in the world of religions. Any sort of prayer that highlights the mediation of creation can be called cataphatic. So, praying before icons or images of saints; the mediation of sacraments and sacramentals; prayer out in creation - all these are cataphatic forms of prayer #Quote by Gregory A. Boyd
Attested Synonym quotes by Dean Koontz
#7. Modesty is related to diffidence, diffidence is related to shyness, Shyness is a synonym for timidity, timidity is a characteristic of the meek, the meek do not inherit the Earth, they serve those who are self confident and self assertive. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Attested Synonym quotes by Maurice Merleau-Ponty
#8. Perhaps "reality" does not belong definitively to any particular perception, that in this sense it lies always further on; but this does not authorize me to break or to ignore the bond that joins them one after the
other to the real, a bond that cannot be broken with the one without first having been established with the following...Each perception is mutable and only probable - it is, if one likes, only an opinion; but what
is not opinion, what each perception, even if false, verifies, is the belongingness of each experience to the same world, their equal power to manifest it, as possibilities of the same world...And this is why the very fragility of a perception, attested by its breakup and by the substitution of another perception, far from authorizing us to efface the index of "reality" from them all, obliges us to concede it to all of them, to recognize all of them to be variants of the same world, and finally to consider them not as all false but as "all true," not as repeated failures in the determination of the world but as progressive approximations...It is the prepossession of a
totality which is there before one knows how and why, whose realizations are never what we would have imagined them to be, and which nonetheless fulfills a secret expectation within us, since we believe in it tirelessly. #Quote by Maurice Merleau-Ponty
Attested Synonym quotes by Philip Guedalla
#9. Greatness is so often a courteous synonym for great success. #Quote by Philip Guedalla
Attested Synonym quotes by Mikhail Chigorin
#10. Not infrequently ... the theoretical is a synonym of the stereotyped. For the 'theoretical' in chess is nothing more than that which can be found in the textbooks and to which players try to conform because they cannot think up anything better or equal, anything original. #Quote by Mikhail Chigorin
Attested Synonym quotes by Nick Nwaogu
#11. I found the word dwarf really offensive, but there was not one better synonym in the dictionary. Midget? Pygmy? Manikin? Homunculus? They all sounded worse to me, so I had to accept my fate. #Quote by Nick Nwaogu
Attested Synonym quotes by Aleena Farrukh
#12. Fantasy Is just another synonym for "having-your-own-crazy-world-bcause-the-real-one-is-too-cynical-to-handle-your-craziness". #Quote by Aleena Farrukh
Attested Synonym quotes by Jodi Picoult
#13. There is a reason the word belonging has a synonym for want at its center; it is the human condition. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Attested Synonym quotes by Frank Herbert
#14. Providence and Manifest Destiny are synonyms often invoked to support arguments based on wishful thinking. #Quote by Frank Herbert

Attested Synonym quotes by Lionel Shriver

Attested Synonym quotes by Timothy Snyder
#17. This is pluralism: not a synonym of relativism, but rather an antonym. Pluralism accepts the moral reality of different kinds of truth, but rejects the idea that they can all be placed on a single scale, measured by a single value. #Quote by Timothy Snyder
Attested Synonym quotes by Gary Bauer
#18. Obviously, marriage is not a synonym for morality. But stable marriages and families do encourage moral behavior. #Quote by Gary Bauer
Attested Synonym quotes by Arthur C. Clarke
#19. It is a good principle in science not to believe any 'fact'
however well attested
until it fits into some accepted frame of reference. Occasionally, of course, an observation can shatter the frame and force the construction of a new one, but that is extremely rare. Galileos and Einsteins seldom appear more than once per century, which is just as well for the equanimity of mankind. #Quote by Arthur C. Clarke
Attested Synonym quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#20. If there is in this world a well-attested account, it is that of vampires. Nothing is lacking: official reports, affidavits of well-known people, of surgeons, of priests, of magistrates; the judicial proof is most complete. And with all that, who is there who believes in vampires? #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Attested Synonym quotes by Robert G. Ingersoll
#21. The real bible is not the work of inspired men, nor prophets, nor apostles, nor evangelists, nor of Christs. Every man who finds a fact, adds, as it were, a word to this great book. It is not attested by prophecy, by miracles or signs. It makes no appeal to faith, to ignorance, to credulity or fear. It has no punishment for unbelief, and no reward for hypocrisy. It appeals to man in the name of demonstration. It has nothing to conceal. It has no fear of being read, of being contradicted, of being investigated and understood. It does not pretend to be holy, or sacred; it simply claims to be true. It challenges the scrutiny of all, and implores every reader to verify every line for himself. It is incapable of being blasphemed. This book appeals to all the surroundings of man. Each thing that exists testifies of its perfection. The earth, with its forests and plains, its rocks and seas; with its every wave and cloud; with its every leaf and bud and flower, confirms its every word, and the solemn stars, shining in the infinite abysses, are the eternal witnesses of its truth. #Quote by Robert G. Ingersoll
Attested Synonym quotes by Dana Gould
#22. New synonyms for sex: Going to a family function, getting the hard part over with, anti-fillet. Get it? Sex! #Quote by Dana Gould
Attested Synonym quotes by Nicholas Meyer
#23. So the Lincoln movie gets trashed because Connecticut voted for the amendment - not to mention how the people in Connecticut feel - but there's a lot of that. And I think it precedes from a fundamental misunderstanding of cinema. They are entertainment. And I'd like to say that entertainment isn't a synonym for disposable or mindless or stupid. Hamlet? Pretty entertaining from where I come from. #Quote by Nicholas Meyer
Attested Synonym quotes by Ronald Hutton
#24. The habit of a midwinter festivity had come by the dawn of history (and probably very long before) to seem a natural one to the British, and not one to be eradicated by changes of political or religious fashion ... It was general custom in pagan Europe to decorate spaces with greenery and flowers for festivals, attested wherever records have survived. #Quote by Ronald Hutton
Attested Synonym quotes by Herman Melville
#25. A chaplain is the minister of the Prince of Peace serving the host of the God of War
Mars. As such, he is as incongruous as a musket would be on the altar at Christmas. Why, then, is he there? Because he indirectly subserves the purpose attested by the cannon; because too he lends the sanction of the religion of the meek to that which practically is the abrogation of everything but brute Force. #Quote by Herman Melville
Attested Synonym quotes by Maria N. Todorova
#26. Balkanization.. had come to denote the parcelization of large & viable political units but also had become a synonym for a reversion to the tribal, the backward, the primitive, the barbarian. #Quote by Maria N. Todorova
Attested Synonym quotes by Donna Fargo
#27. I really think happiness is very closely aligned with success, and may almost be an interchangeable synonym. Happiness (like success) also comes from doing what we feel called to do in life; however, it's also obvious no one can experience one without the other. #Quote by Donna Fargo
Attested Synonym quotes by Anne Rice
#28. Our language needs endless synonyms for beautiful; the eyes could see what the tongue cannot possibly describe. #Quote by Anne Rice
Attested Synonym quotes by R.C. Sproul
#29. We take comfort, however, that mystery is not a synonym for contradiction. #Quote by R.C. Sproul
Attested Synonym quotes by Theodore Levitt
#30. Ideation is not a synonym for innovation, conformity is not its simple antonym, and innovation is not the automatic consequence of "creative thinking.". #Quote by Theodore Levitt
Attested Synonym quotes by Isaac Deutscher
#31. For nearly thirty years the powerful propaganda machines of Stalinism worked furiously to expunge Trotsky's name from the annals of the revolution, or to leave it there only as the synonym for arch-traitor. To the present Soviet generation, and not only to it, Trotsky's life-story is already like an ancient Egyptian sepulchre which is known to have contained the body of a great man and the record, engraved in gold, of his deeds; but tomb-robbers and ghouls have plundered and left it so empty and desolate that no trace is found of the record it once contained. The work of the tomb-robbers has, in this present instance, been so persistent that it has strongly affected the views even of independent Western historians and scholars. #Quote by Isaac Deutscher
Attested Synonym quotes by Karen R. Jones & John Wills
#32. The construction of castle arbours, monastic cloister gardens and Byzantine courtyards with trees and flowers attested to Western interest in the natural world. Paradise remained synonymous with perfect environments. In Anglo-Saxon, 'paradise' translated as 'meadow' or 'pasture'. Notions of a classical Golden Age, local legends, religion and romantic poetry all perpetuated the concept of nature as a refuge from society. For the nobility, nature signified a retreat for aesthetic pleasure and a venue for spiritual uplift. However, for the average medieval peasant, the organic world meant livestock rearing and crop production. #Quote by Karen R. Jones & John Wills
Attested Synonym quotes by John Barrymore
#33. I am thinking of taking a fifth wife. Why not? Solomon had a thousand wives and he is a synonym for wisdom. #Quote by John Barrymore
Attested Synonym quotes by Steven Heighton
#34. We were made to get along, to be together, and
it's a truth that's medically attested... Love and dance and connection strengthen every bodily system, while isolation, rage and sadness poison them with cortisol. #Quote by Steven Heighton
Attested Synonym quotes by Charles Handy
#35. Change is only another word for growth, another synonym for learning. #Quote by Charles Handy
Attested Synonym quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#36. "offensive" is frequently but a synonym for "unusual" ... #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Attested Synonym quotes by G. W. Bromiley
#37. ..the description of the ministry as a ministry of the word refers to the content of the message rather than the manner of its presentation. That is to say, the Christian minister is called to minister Christ Himself as the eternal Word incarnate for us men and for our salvation. The focus of attention is not preaching or teaching as such; otherwise a false importance is give to the spoken word of Man. It is the theme and content of preaching and teaching. By means of the ministry Christ Himself is handed over to others to be received and then passed on by them as God's own Word of revelation and redemption. Secondarily, the ministry of the word refers to the ministry of the prophetic and apostolic testimony to Jesus Christ, the true and incarnate Word. That is to say, the Christian minister is called to pass on to others that which is attested concerning Jesus Christ by the forward-looking witness of the Old Testament and the backward-looking witness of the New. #Quote by G. W. Bromiley
Attested Synonym quotes by Philip Zaleski
#38. The onslaught of scruples is a problem well attested in the spiritual life, especially among the young, where religious observances must be done perfectly to achieve a certain result. #Quote by Philip Zaleski
Attested Synonym quotes by Pete Wentz
#39. It's semi-frustrating when your name actually becomes a synonym for douchebag. #Quote by Pete Wentz
Attested Synonym quotes by Thorstein Veblen
#40. The ceremonial differentiation of the dietary is best seen in the use of intoxicating beverages and narcotics. If these articles of consumption are costly, they are felt to be noble and honorific. Therefore the base classes, primarily the women, practice an enforced continence with respect to these stimulants, except in countries where they are obtainable at a very low cost. From archaic times down through all the length of the patriarchal regime it has been the office of the women to prepare and administer these luxuries, and it has been the perquisite of the men of gentle birth and breeding to consume them. Drunkenness and the other pathological consequences of the free use of stimulants therefore tend in their turn to become honorific, as being a mark, at the second remove, of the superior status of those who are able to afford the indulgence. Infirmities induced by over-indulgence are among some peoples freely recognised as manly attributes. It has even happened that the name for certain diseased conditions of the body arising from such an origin has passed into everyday speech as a synonym for "noble" or "gentle". It is only at a relatively early stage of culture that the symptoms of expensive vice are conventionally accepted as marks of a superior status, and so tend to become virtues and command the deference of the community; but the reputability that attaches to certain expensive vices long retains so much of its force as to appreciably lesson the disapprobation visi #Quote by Thorstein Veblen
Attested Synonym quotes by Charles Sanders Peirce
#41. We start, then, with nothing, pure zero. But this is not the nothing of negation. For not means other than, and other is merely a synonym of the ordinal numeral second. As such it implies a first; while the present pure zero is prior to every first. The nothing of negation is the nothing of death, which comes second to, or after, everything. But this pure zero is the nothing of not having been born. There is no individual thing, no compulsion, outward nor inward, no law. It is the germinal nothing, in which the whole universe is involved or foreshadowed. As such, it is absolutely undefined and unlimited possibility
boundless possibility. There is no compulsion and no law. It is boundless freedom. #Quote by Charles Sanders Peirce
Attested Synonym quotes by Mindy Kaling
#42. I think sometimes people think cheerful is a synonym for dumb, so no one is ever cheerful. #Quote by Mindy Kaling
Attested Synonym quotes by Theodore Sturgeon
#43. Here's the point to be made - there are no synonyms. There are no two words that mean exactly the same thing. #Quote by Theodore Sturgeon
