two sense of the world 'sense'?
Winning an award would give me a great sense of achievement.
Humans are more than just intelligent. Our sense of justice, out need for aesthetic pleasure, our imaginative flights and our penetrating self-awareness, all combine to create an indefinable spirit which i believe is the soul.
My understanding is that in the first sentence the speaker is saying that he has a feeling that he has achieved something, whereas in the second one by
'sense of justice' the speaker is meaning 'the ability to tell what is fair from what is unfair'.
I doubt my understanding, though. Would you please help me? Thank you!
