Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Malcolm Muggeridge:

  2. Lindsay Lohan:

    I always love giving gifts, so yes, for family and friends, most definitely I will be sending gifts. For me, I know it sounds silly, but, I am okay. I like to live by the act of giving. In all honesty, I am good with no materialistic gifts.

  3. Wyndham Lewis:

    With a new familiarity and a flesh-creeping homeliness entirely of this unreal, materialistic world, where all sentiment is coarsely manufactured and advertised in colossal sickly captions, disguised for the sweet tooth of a monstrous baby called the Public, the family as it is, broken up on all hands by the agency of feminist and economic propaganda, reconstitutes itself in the image of the state.

  4. Kim Kardashian-West:

    I know this sounds crazy, but I know that was meant to happen to me. I don't want to start crying, but I feel like that was so meant to happen to me, i'm such a different person. I don't want to start crying anymore. It was meant to happen to me. I really feel like things happen in your life to teach you things. It was probably no secret -- and you see it on the show -- I was being flashy and I was definitely materialistic before.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Life cannot be measured by summary statistics, such as the money accumulated in the banks, or the shares acquired in the stock market, or the number of real estates owned etc. In my view, the only valuable metric that would quantify your life most accurately is the number of lives you were able to help selflessly, and influence most positively. The true purpose of human life is very noble IMHO....always above and beyond mere metrics of materialistic matters.
