English Synonyms and Antonyms, by James Champlin Fernald

  1. succession

    Sequence and succession apply to events viewed as following one another; time and duration denote something conceived of as enduring while events take place and acts are done. According to the necessary conditions of human thought, events are contained in time as objects are in space, time existing before the event, measuring it as it passes, and still existing when the event is past. Duration and succession are more general words than time; we can speak of infinite or eternal duration or succession, but time is commonly contrasted with eternity. Time is measured or measurable duration.

    Synonyms:
    age, date, duration, eon, epoch, era, period, season, sequence, term, time, while
