"a favorable reply"
"he received a favorable rating"
"listened with a favorable ear"
"made a favorable impression"
"the days were fair and the winds were favorable"
"an opportune time to receive guests"
"a favorable time to ask for a raise"
"a prosperous moment to make a decision"
Happier the man whom favourable stars Allots thee for his lovely bedfellow.
