  1. mechanic

    Artist, artificer and artisan are all from the root of art, but artist holds to the esthetic sense, while artificer and artisan follow the mechanical or industrial sense of the word (see ART under SCIENCE). Artist thus comes only into accidental association with the other words of this group, not being a synonym of any one of them and having practically no synonym of its own. The work of the artist is creative; that of the artisan mechanical. The man who paints a beautiful picture is an artist; the man who makes pin-heads all day is an artisan. The artificer is between the two, putting more thought, intelligence, and taste into his work than the artisan, but less of the idealizing, creative power than the artist. The sculptor, shaping his model in clay, is artificer, as well as artist; patient artisans, working simply by rule and scale, chisel and polish the stone. The man who constructs anything by mere routine and rule is a mechanic. The man whose work involves thought, skill, and constructive power is an artificer. The hod-carrier is a laborer; the bricklayer is a mechanic; the master mason is an artificer. Those who operate machinery nearly self-acting are operatives.

How to use mechanic in a sentence?

  1. Charles Cooley:

    It is surely a matter of common observation that a man who knows no one thing intimately has no views worth hearing on things in general. The farmer philosophizes in terms of crops, soils, markets, and implements, the mechanic generalizes his experiences of wood and iron, the seaman reaches similar conclusions by his own special road; and if the scholar keeps pace with these it must be by an equally virile productivity.

  2. Prime Minister Boiko Borisov:

    If we find where to sell it, together with the Russian party, and recoup the funds we would pay, that would be the best solution, every other option is way more complicated... To decide now to build a Russian reactor when Russia is under sanctions. You can imagine what access every engineer or mechanic who comes here would have and what additional problems Bulgaria would face.

  3. T.D:

    Like I said, everyone wants to have a happy ending. Life leads us different paths and scenarios. We make mistakes that are often unforgivable. Someone once told me that everything could be fixed. I agree with this but I have one question. What if I'm not a mechanic?

  4. Danish proverb:

    A man too busy to take care of his health is like a mechanic too busy to take care of his tools.

  5. Maria Menounos:

    We’re caretakers as women and we put ourselves last, i tell people all the time if your car is making a weird noise, you take it to the mechanic. How come when our body is making weird noises, we ignore it? I’m so lucky that I went to the doctor and raised the alarm.
