  1. sensible

    One is aware of that which exists without him; he is conscious of the inner workings of his own mind. Sensible may be used in the exact sense of conscious, or it may partake of both the senses mentioned above. One may be sensible of his own or another's error; he is conscious only of his own. A person may feel assured or sure of something false or non-existent; what he is aware of, still more what he is conscious of, must be fact. Sensible has often a reference to the emotions where conscious might apply only to the intellect; to say a culprit is sensible of his degradation is more forcible than to say he is conscious of it.

    advised, apprised, assured, aware, certain, certified, cognizant, conscious, informed, sure

    cold, dead, deaf, ignorant, insensible, unaware, unconscious

    On the stormy sea, man is conscious of the limitation of human power.
