  1. attention

    Care concerns what we possess; anxiety, often, what we do not; riches bring many cares; poverty brings many anxieties. Care also signifies watchful attention, in view of possible harm; as, "This side up with care;" "Take care of yourself;" or, as a sharp warning, "Take care!" Caution has a sense of possible harm and risk only to be escaped, if at all, by careful deliberation and observation. Care inclines to the positive, caution to the negative; care is shown in doing, caution largely in not doing. Precaution is allied with care, prudence with caution; a man rides a dangerous horse with care; caution will keep him from mounting the horse; precaution looks to the saddle-girths, bit and bridle, and all that may make the rider secure. Circumspection is watchful observation and calculation, but without the timidity implied in caution. Concern denotes a serious interest, milder than anxiety; as, concern for the safety of a ship at sea. Heed implies attention without disquiet; it is now largely displaced by attention and care. Solicitude involves especially the element of desire, not expressed in anxiety, and of hopefulness, not implied in care. A parent feels constant solicitude for his children's welfare, anxiety as to dangers that threaten it, with care to guard against them. Watchfulness recognizes the possibility of danger, wariness the probability. A man who is not influenced by caution to keep out of danger may display great wariness in the midst of it. Care has also the sense of responsibility, with possible control, as expressed in charge, management, oversight; as, these children are under my care; send the money to me in care of the firm. Compare ALARM; ANXIETY; PRUDENCE.

How to use attention in a sentence?

  1. Jackson City Councilman Aaron Banks:

    One of the first things that we realized is that people need to be able to flush because that becomes a problem as far as making sure that people have that quality of life that they need, at the end of the day, we need a fix and the same attention that was given to Flint, Michigan, we need that same attention given to Jackson City Councilman Aaron Banks.

  2. Iowa AFL-CIO President Ken Sagar:

  3. Jim Marchese:

    It’s not about just one character.It’s all the characters.There was one episode that drew a lot of attention and she (Teresa) wasn’t even there, the show does well because of the dynamics of the group and the interaction of the group. I believe the show can go on without Teresa.

  5. Dulcinea Pitagora:

    People will inevitably make mistakes, which is okay ; we're human and we make mistakes. The trick is to not get stuck in the mistake, but to correct oneself and move on, because it doesn't have to be a big deal or focus of attention. These types of things normalize and destigmatize vocalizing how we want others to refer to us in terms of our gender.
