English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. conscious

    One is aware of that which exists without him; he is conscious of the inner workings of his own mind. Sensible may be used in the exact sense of conscious, or it may partake of both the senses mentioned above. One may be sensible of his own or another's error; he is conscious only of his own. A person may feel assured or sure of something false or non-existent; what he is aware of, still more what he is conscious of, must be fact. Sensible has often a reference to the emotions where conscious might apply only to the intellect; to say a culprit is sensible of his degradation is more forcible than to say he is conscious of it.

  1. Eli Friedman:

    The wave of repression we're in is not just the last few weeks. It's a very conscious strategy on the park of the state to close a space for academic freedom.

  2. Jacqui Hunt:

    We wanted to show how women are treated as children, as property without conscious thought, how they are stereotyped into particular roles, and how these roles are codified in law.

  3. Joshua Thompson:

    I think that a conscious by-product of the regulators' approach is to put additional pressure on the private equity firms and to get them to put up more equity, which is, of course, at the bottom of the capital structure.

  4. Eli Roth:

    When people watch a trailer, they’re judging based on two-and-a-half minutes of material, and if it’s Bruce Willis shooting a gun, cut to AC/DC, some people are going to draw that conclusion. What I really try to do more than anything is show it how it really is, and leave it for the audience to decide, one thing I’m very conscious of as a filmmaker in Hollywood is not telling the audience what to think, or how to think, and you can make the same argument about ‘John Wick’ or ‘Taken.’ Any action movie you can say is a pro-gun movie. It’s giving a story that allows people to discuss a difficult subject. In the same way ‘Get Out’ came out, everyone was allowed to discuss race and racism because of the movie.

  5. H.W. Mann:

    We have evolved to this point. All is as it should be. But it is time to wake up, to gain consciousness, to learn and to adapt, to evolve, to move into a much larger reality. It is time to collectively wake up, to move out of the collective sub conscious and into collective consciousness. It is time to complete the collective mind.
