English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. rational

    Sagacious refers to a power of tracing the hidden or recondite by slight indications, as by instinct or intuition; it is not now applied to mere keenness of sense-perception. We do not call a hound sagacious in following a clear trail; but if he loses the scent, as at the edge of a stream, and circles around till he strikes it again, his conduct is said to be sagacious. In human affairs sagacious refers to a power of ready, far-reaching, and accurate inference from observed facts perhaps in themselves very slight, that seems like a special sense; or to a similar readiness to foresee the results of any action, especially upon human motives or conduct — a kind of prophetic common sense. Sagacious is a broader and nobler word than shrewd, and not capable of the invidious sense which the latter word often bears; on the other hand, sagacious is less lofty and comprehensive than wise in its full sense, and more limited to matters of direct practical moment. Compare ASTUTE; WISDOM.

    Synonyms:
    able, acute, apt, clear-sighted, discerning, intelligent, judicious, keen, keen-sighted, keen-witted, perspicacious, quick of scent, quick-scented, sagacious, sage, sensible, sharp, sharp-witted, shrewd, wise

    Antonyms:
    absurd, dull, foolish, futile, ignorant, irrational, obtuse, senseless, silly, simple, sottish, stupid, undiscerning, unintelligent

How to use rational in a sentence?

  1. Donald Trump:

    We as a nation must find a way to move forward without consigning those who Donald Trump has threatened to the shadows. Their fear is entirely rational, because Donald Trump has talked openly about doing terrible things to them, every news piece that breathlessly obsesses over inauguration preparations compounds their fear by normalizing a man who has threatened to tear families apart, who has bragged about sexually assaulting women and who has directed crowds of thousands to intimidate reporters and assault Hispanic Americans.

  2. Rahul Gandhi:

    We will take some rational economic decisions, we will restructure the GST and we will embrace investments from the Middle East and other parts of the world. We are the party of (India's economic) liberalization, we are the party that gave the fastest economic growth in the first decade of the century, and will do that again.

  3. Matt Pascal:

    Zambia needs a lot of exploration. We don't have the ore grades in Zambia that we have in Congo, so it does make it that much more difficult, we are heartened by the fact that the current government has expressed the willingness to talk to the industry and come up with a rational tax going forward that will be conducive to further investments and the sustainability of the mines.

  4. Albert Einstein:

    Isn’t it strange that I who have written only unpopular books should be such a popular fellow. Chirology may be one of the vital sciences of the future. ~ Albert Einstein (“Seeing into the Future” ~ Harvey Day) I hate crowds and making speeches. I hate facing cameras and having to answer to a crossfire of questions. Why popular fancy should seize upon me, a scientist, dealing in abstract things and happy if left alone, is a manifestation of mass psychology that is beyond me. I am neither especially clever nor especially gifted. I am only very, very curious. The ideals that have lighted my way and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty and Truth. The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift. When his wife asked him to change clothes to meet the German Ambassador: “they want to see me, here I am. If they want to see my clothes, open my closet and show them my suits.

  5. Dharmendra Pradhan:

    We want to bring together the countries and form a network which can together source reasonable, rational and affordable LNG.
