      [1913 Webster]

   Syn: Considerate; deliberate; contemplative; attentive;
        careful; wary; circumspect; reflective; discreet.

   Usage: Thoughtful, Considerate. He who is habitually
          thoughtful rarely neglects his duty or his true
          interest; he who is considerate pauses to reflect and
          guard himself against error. One who is not thoughtful
          by nature, if he can be made considerate, will usually
          be guarded against serious mistakes. "He who is
          thoughtful does not forget his duty; he who is
          considerate pauses, and considers properly what is his
          duty. It is a recommendation to a subordinate person
          to be thoughtful in doing what is wished of him; it is
          the recommendation of a confidential person to be
          considerate, as he has often to judge according to his
          own discretion." --Crabb.
          [1913 Webster] -- Thought"ful*ly, adv. --
          Thought"ful*ness, n.
          [1913 Webster]
