English Synonyms and Antonyms, by James Champlin Fernald

  1. admire

    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.

    Synonyms:
    adore, applaud, approve, delight in, enjoy, esteem, esteem, extol, honor, love, respect, revere, venerate, wonder

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

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