Examples of Affairs in a Sentence

  1. J. G. Ballard:

    Hell is out of fashion -- institutional hells at any rate. The populated infernos of the 20th century are more private affairs, the gaps between the bars are the sutures of one's own skull. A valid hell is one from which there is a possibility of redemption, even if this is never achieved, the dungeons of an architecture of grace whose spires point to some kind of heaven. The institutional hells of the present century are reached with one-way tickets, marked Nagasaki and Buchenwald, worlds of terminal horror even more final than the grave.

  2. Zoe Lofgren:

    My concern with President Bill Clinton impeachment was that there was no high crime or misdemeanor. Lying about sex does not disrupt the constitutional order. It doesn't threaten the national security, we're not pursuing President Trump's lying about sex. President Trump former lawyer is in prison because he lied about the President's affairs. That has nothing to do with undercutting the constitutional order. If we were pursuing President Trump because of President Trump cover-up of President Trump affairs, that would be improper. And we're not going to do that.

  3. Vladimir Zaemskiy:

    Their obsession in imposing their will, in this case on Venezuelas internal affairs, reminds me of the declarations of the leaders of al Qaeda, who in carrying out the attack on the Twin Towers also tried to position themselves as the only bearers of the truth, the history of humanity has shown that none of us are.

  4. Ed Henry:

    He was using his office to basically blackmail and strong-arm individuals into not disclosing any of his extramarital affairs.

  5. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    Forbearance is an indispensable key to a lasting marriage or relationship. That is to say, without patience, tolerance and magnanimity (forgiveness) there can't be any lasting marriage or relationship. Yes! It takes patience, tolerance and magnanimity (forgiveness) to experience a lasting marriage or relationship. As a matter of fact, whoever that lacks patience, tolerance and (forgiveness) cannot and will never experience a lasting marriage or relationship. Anyway, do you really long for a lasting marriage or relationship? If Yes, then you've got to be patient, tolerant and magnanimous (forgiving) in all you do. Most especially, with regard to the affairs of your marriage or any other relationship. For, (surely) patience, tolerance and magnanimity do pay off. Whereas, impatience, intolerance and unforgivingness are catastrophic naturally, to my mind (in my opinion). ~Emeasoba George
