  1. vigilance

    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 vigilance in a sentence?

  1. Richard Beary:

    We’re telling our people from the time you put that uniform on to the time you walk in your house your head needs to be on a swivel and there is no downtime anymore, no getting lunch and relaxing for a few minutes, what worries me as a law-enforcement executive is that extended period of hyper vigilance on our employees, that’s going to take a toll emotionally.

  2. Alain Juppe:

    I am ready to help him of course if we take the course I have set out, rallying the right and the centre, we will see for the (presidential) primaries. That's not the subject. The opposite of vigilance is what? It's going to sleep? I am not going to go to sleep.

  3. Agnes Repplier:

    In the stress of modern life, how little room is left for that most comfortable vanity that whispers in our ears that failures are not faults! Now we are taught from infancy that we must rise or fall upon our own merits; that vigilance wins success, and incapacity means ruin.

  4. Jacksonville State University:

    Investigators have informed us from the onset that this was a contained situation and that there was not -- nor does there appear to be at this time -- any safety concern for any JSU students arising out of this matter, we as an institution and as a community are committed to maintaining a secure and trusted campus environment for our students, employees, visitors and guests, and we will continue with appropriate vigilance and campus-wide education.

  5. Theatrical Stage Employees union:

    Our entire alliance mourns this unspeakable loss with Halyna's family, friends, and the Rust crew, creating a culture of safety requires relentless vigilance from every one of us, day in and day out.
