English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. excite

    To influence (Latin in, in or into, and fluo, flow) is to affect, modify, or act upon by physical, mental, or moral power, especially in some gentle, subtle, and gradual way; as, vegetation is influenced by light; every one is influenced to some extent by public opinion; influence is chiefly used of power acting from without, tho it may be used of motives regarded as forces acting upon the will. Actuate refers solely to mental or moral power impelling one from within. One may influence, but can not directly actuate another; but one may be actuated to cruelty by hatred which another's misrepresentation has aroused. Prompt and stir are words of mere suggestion toward some course of action; dispose, draw, incline, influence, and lead refer to the use of mild means to awaken in another a purpose or disposition to act. To excite is to arouse one from lethargy or indifference to action. Incite and instigate, to spur or goad one to action, differ in the fact that incite may be to good, while instigate is always to evil (compare ABET). To urge and impel signify to produce strong excitation toward some act. We are urged from without, impelled from within. Drive and compel imply irresistible influence accomplishing its object. One may be driven either by his own passions or by external force or urgency; one is compelled only by some external power; as, the owner was compelled by his misfortunes to sell his estate. Compare COMPEL; DRIVE.

    Synonyms:
    actuate, compel, dispose, draw, drive, impel, incite, incline, induce, influence, instigate, lead, move, persuade, prompt, stir, sway, urge

    Antonyms:
    deter, discourage, dissuade, hinder, impede, inhibit, prevent, restrain, retard

    Preposition:
    Actuated to crime by revenge.

How to use excite in a sentence?

  1. Robert Bleischwitz:

    In cases where the flow is at higher risk of detaching from the surface; so your vehicle has a risk to sag down, to fall down. In that period a membrane wing can keep it afloat because the dynamics in the surface trigger vortices which roll down the wing, and these vortices produce lift. So you can use this vortex generation to produce lift. And you need the membrane to excite, generate these vortices.

  2. Hillary Clinton:

    Whenever I'm talking to young women about politics, I always say, look, you don't have to run for office, you don't have to be actively involved, but you do have to exercise your brain in deciding what you believe and who you will support, and sometimes, it is choices between people that none of whom excite you, but study it enough to figure out, OK, if I vote for this person over that person, I'm more likely to see progress on something I care about.

  3. Author Unknown:

    A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner, neither do uninterrupted prosperity and success qualify for usefulness and happiness. The storms of adversity, like those of the ocean, rouse the faculties, and excite the invention, prudence, skill and fortitude or the voyager. The martyrs of ancient times, in bracing their minds to outward calamities, acquired a loftiness of purpose and a moral heroism worth a lifetime of softness and security.

  4. Ausonius:

    If thou intendest to do a good act, do it quickly, and then thou wilt excite gratitude; a favour if it be slow in being conferred causes ingratitude.

  5. William Ellery Channing:

    Innocent amusements are such as excite moderately, and such as produce a cheerful frame of mind, not boisterous mirth; such as refresh, instead of exhausting, the system; such as recur frequently, rather than continue long; such as send us back to our daily duties invigorated in body and spirit; such as we can partake of in the presence and society of respectable friends; such as consist with and are favorable to a grateful piety; such as are chastened by self-respect, and are accompanied with the consciousness that life has a higher end than to be amused.
