Usage: To {Excite}, {Incite}. When we excite we rouse into action feelings which were less strong; when we incite we spur on or urge forward to a specific act or end.

Antony, by his speech over the body of C[ae]sar, so excited the feelings of the populace, that Brutus and his companions were compelled to flee from Rome; many however, were incited to join their standard, not only by love of liberty, but hopes of plunder.
