English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. heed

    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 heed in a sentence?

  1. Sara Pantuliano:

    These doses need to be shared as quickly as possible, not waiting until the end of the year and into 2022. The success of the G7 summit will be judged primarily on whether enough concrete measures are agreed to accelerate the global response to the pandemic. With new variants continuously threatening global and local recovery efforts, there has perhaps never been a public policy challenge where national and international interests are so closely aligned, and G7 nations would do well to heed that.

  2. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi:

    I've said from the start that we must have a proposal that's government-wide, science-based, so that we can really address the challenge that we face in a scientific, evidence-based way. That is not necessarily the course that has been advocated by some, but it's where we must be if we're going to end this, we have some of the best minds working 24/7, all hands on deck, to find a cure, which is of course the light at the end of the tunnel. But if we do not heed the advice of the scientific community about isolation and avoiding as much communal contact as possible — in fact none -- then the light at the end of the tunnel may be a train coming at us.

  3. Walter Steller:

    If people don't heed the warnings, the problem will become serious again, some people think this is over, but they have to realize this doesn't end.

  4. Bill Gates:

    It's fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure

  5. Samuel Alito:

    Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences, and far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have enflamed debate and deepened division. It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.
