Construction task (2)

In English, there are a number of pairs of words differing only by one letter with more or less opposed senses. (Ignore a privative for these purposes, as it makes things too easy.) Make up a grammatical sentence, preferably true, using as many of these pairs as possible. A small-scale example to start: "Wilson dared to prescribe overt, but not to proscribe covert, diplomacy."
