Definition of Shining
Shining Shin"ing, n.
Emission or reflection of light.
ShiningShining Shin"ing, a.
1. Emitting light, esp. in a continuous manner; radiant; as,
shining lamps; also, bright by the reflection of light;
as, shining armor. ``Fish . . . with their fins and
shining scales.' --Milton.
2. Splendid; illustrious; brilliant; distinguished;
conspicious; as, a shining example of charity.
3. Having the surface smooth and polished; -- said of leaves,
the surfaces of shells, etc.
Syn: Glistening; bright; radiant; resplendent; effulgent;
lustrous; brilliant; glittering; splendid; illustrious.
Usage: Shining, Brilliant, Sparking. Shining describes
the steady emission of a strong light, or the steady
reflection of light from a clear or polished surface.
Brilliant denotes a shining of great brightness, but
with gleams or flashes. Sparkling implies a fitful,
intense shining from radiant points or sparks, by
which the eye is dazzled. The same distinctions obtain
when these epithets are figuratively applied. A man of
shining talents is made conspicious by possessing
them; if they flash upon the mind with a peculiarly
striking effect, we call them brilliant; if his
brilliancy is marked by great vivacity and occasional
intensity, he is sparkling.
True paradise . . . inclosed with shining rock.
Some in a brilliant buckle bind her waist, Some
round her neck a circling light display. --Gay.
His sparkling blade about his head he blest.
