Scheme   Listen
noun
Scheme  n.  
1.
A combination of things connected and adjusted by design; a system. "The appearance and outward scheme of things." "Such a scheme of things as shall at once take in time and eternity." "Arguments... sufficient to support and demonstrate a whole scheme of moral philosophy." "The Revolution came and changed his whole scheme of life."
2.
A plan or theory something to be done; a design; a project; as, to form a scheme. "The stoical scheme of supplying our wants by lopping off our desires, is like cutting off our feet when we want shoes."
3.
Any lineal or mathematical diagram; an outline. "To draw an exact scheme of Constantinople, or a map of France."
4.
(Astrol.) A representation of the aspects of the celestial bodies for any moment or at a given event. "A blue silk case, from which was drawn a scheme of nativity."
Synonyms: Plan; project; contrivance; purpose; device; plot. Scheme, Plan. Scheme and plan are subordinate to design; they propose modes of carrying our designs into effect. Scheme is the least definite of the two, and lies more in speculation. A plan is drawn out into details with a view to being carried into effect. As schemes are speculative, they often prove visionary; hence the opprobrious use of the words schemer and scheming. Plans, being more practical, are more frequently carried into effect. "He forms the well-concerted scheme of mischief; 'T is fixed, 't is done, and both are doomed to death." "Artists and plans relieved my solemn hours; I founded palaces, and planted bowers."
