Dictionary Meaning and Definition on 'Remarked'

Remarked Meaning and Definition from Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)
    Remark \Re*mark"\ (r?-m?rk"), v. t. [imp. & p. p. Remarked (-m?rkt"); p. pr. & vb. n. Remarking.] [F. remarquer; pref. re- re- + marquer to mark, marque a mark, of German origin, akin to E. mark. See Mark, v.& n.]
  1. To mark in a notable manner; to distinquish clearly; to make noticeable or conspicuous; to piont out. [Obs.] Thou art a man remarked to taste a mischief. --Ford. His manacles remark him; there he sits. --Milton.
  2. To take notice of, or to observe, mentally; as, to remark the manner of a speaker.
  3. To express in words or writing, as observed or noticed; to state; to say; -- often with a substantive clause; as, he remarked that it was time to go. Syn: To observe; notice; heed; regard; note; say. Usage: Remark, Observe, Notice. To observe is to keep or hold a thing distinctly before the mind. To remark is simply to mark or take note of whatever may come up. To notice implies still less continuity of attention. When we turn from these mental states to the expression of them in language, we find the same distinction. An observation is properly the result of somewhat prolonged thought; a remark is usually suggested by some passing occurence; a notice is in most cases something cursory and short. This distinction is not always maintained as to remark and observe, which are often used interchangeably. ``Observing men may form many judgments by the rules of similitude and proportion.'' --I. Watts. ''He can not distinguish difficult and noble speculations from trifling and vulgar remarks.'' --Collier. ''The thing to be regarded, in taking notice of a child's miscarriage, is what root it springs from.'' --Locke.

    * It is to be remarked that a good many people are born curiously unfitted for the fate waiting them on this earth. - Joseph Conrad

    * Innumerable voices have been asserting for some time now that human society is passing through a crisis, that its stability has been gravely shattered. It is characteristic of such a situation that individuals feel indifferent or even hostile toward the group, small or large, to which they belong. In order to illustrate my meaning, let me record here a personal experience. I recently discussed with an intelligent and well-disposed man the threat of another war, which in my opinion would seriously endanger the existence of mankind, and I remarked that only a supranational organization would offer protection from that danger. Thereupon my visitor, very calmly and coolly, said to me Why are you so deeply opposed to the disappearance of the human race - Albert Einstein
