Usage: Direction, Control, Command, Order. These

exercise of power over the actions of others. Control
is negative, denoting power to restrain; command is
positive, implying a right to enforce obedience;
directions are commands containing instructions how to
act. Order conveys more prominently the idea of
authority than the word direction. A shipmaster has
the command of his vessel; he gives orders or
directions to the seamen as to the mode of sailing it;
and exercises a due control over the passengers.
