English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. perceive

    We perceive what is presented through the senses. We apprehend what is presented to the mind, whether through the senses or by any other means. Yet perceive is used in the figurative sense of seeing through to a conclusion, in a way for which usage would not allow us to substitute apprehend; as, "Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet," John iv, 19. That which we apprehend we catch, as with the hand; that which we conceive we are able to analyze and recompose in our mind; that which we comprehend, we, as it were, grasp around, take together, seize, embrace wholly within the mind. Many things may be apprehended which can not be comprehended; a child can apprehend the distinction between right and wrong, yet the philosopher can not comprehend it in its fulness. We can apprehend the will of God as revealed in conscience or the Scriptures; we can conceive of certain attributes of Deity, as his truth and justice; but no finite intelligence can comprehend the Divine Nature, in its majesty, power, and perfection. Compare ANTICIPATE; ARREST; CATCH; KNOWLEDGE.

How to use perceive in a sentence?

  1. Pinkett Smith:

    The only person that can give permission in that particular circumstance is Pinkett Smith, i could actually see how he would perceive it as permission because we were separated amicably and I think he also wanted to make it clear that he's also not a homewrecker. Which he's not.

  2. Auguste Rodin:

    In short, Beauty is everywhere. It is not that she is lacking to our eye, but our eyes which fail to perceive her. Beauty is character and expression. Well, there is nothing in nature which has more character than the human body. In its strength and its grace it evokes the most varied images. One moment it resembles a flower: the bending torso is the stalk; the breasts, the head, and the splendor of the hair answer to the blossoming of the corolla. The next moment it recalls the pliant creeper, or the proud and upright sapling.

  3. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

Horror smile A cunning smile of awareness and a psychic laugh. Horror smile in the soul of loneliness. We are particles of the cult era of laughter in the cult of cruel humor of reality. We are in the great psychological, comical game of society. 4. The first hundred years of life, the body and spirit perceive everything as an immature illusion, where closer to the end of the century all dreams melt and disappear, but if a person lives longer, he feels how life turns into reality with which it becomes one whole, like a ghost. 5. The plasma ball of thoughts is a thought process, the heart of life is plasma lightning - this is the fire of the universe - this is a disco of feelings that responds to understanding. 6. Time is a pawnshop of nostalgia and spiritual values. 7. In nature, instincts are a cycle associated with universal mechanisms. In the world of people, instincts directed against each other are selfish deception egoism, all this gives rise to vices and inner flaws, all this creates an internal chaos of dirty, sinful thoughts of hypocritical egoism. 8. Communication is a space probe for the inner worlds. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich

  4. Goethe:

    There is nothing more pitiable in the world than an irresolute man vacillating between two feelings, who would willingly unite the two, and who does not perceive that nothing can unite them.

  5. Adam Smith:

    The difference of natural talents in different men is, in reality, much less than we are aware of; and the very different genius which appears to distinguish men of different professions, when grown up to maturity, is not upon many occasions so much the cause as the effect of the division of labour. The difference between the most dissimilar characters, between a philosopher and a common street porter, for example, seems to arise not so much from nature as from habit, custom, and education. When they came into the world, and for the first six or eight years of their existence, they were perhaps very much alike, and neither their parents nor playfellows could perceive any remarkable difference...
