   Usage: Inconsistent, Incongruous, Incompatible. Things
          are incongruous when they are not suited to each
          other, so that their union is unbecoming; inconsistent
          when they are opposed to each other, so as render it
          improper or wrong; incompatible when they can not
          coexist, and it is therefore impossible to unite them.
          Habitual levity of mind is incongruous with the
          profession of a clergyman; it is inconsistent with his
          ordination vows; it is incompatible with his permanent
          usefulness. Incongruity attaches to the modes and
          qualities of things; incompatibility attaches to their
          essential attributes; inconsistency attaches to the
          actions, sentiments, etc., of men.
          [1913 Webster]
