Examples of Gently in a Sentence

  1. John Kennedy:

    What I am about to say, I intend to say gently and constructively. And that is this. We need to do more. We need to do more. By we, I mean the Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio Congress.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Some people bear startling resemblance with lovely Lotus flowers that grow in the mud, and yet rise above the murkier waters as astoundingly beautiful flowers. The mud of adversities, challenges and obstacles doesn't stop their growth, but offers the nourishment and strength to rise above the dirt. I often think that it must be the strong desire, tenacity and perseverance of Lotus flower that makes her so unique in rising above and beyond the normal limitations. Lest we forget, not everything that grows in the mud turns into an elegant Lotus flower. In my view we must strive to develop the same mental strength, perseverance and passion within - so as to grow above the mud of compelling circumstances, hate, hardships, social rejections, and discriminations that we often encounter in the real world. Only then we'll be able to transform into eloquent Lotus flowers, gently opening our soft and supple petals one by one, to make our world most beautiful.

  3. Tim Ghriskey:

  4. John Kennedy:

    Here’s what everybody’s been trying to tell you today. And I say this gently. Your user agreement sucks, the purpose of that user agreement is to cover Facebook’s rear-end. It’s not to inform Facebook’s users about their rights.

  5. Francis Quarles:

    In the height of thy prosperity expect adversity, but fear it not. If it come not, thou art the more sweetly possessed of the happiness thou hast, and the more strongly confirmed. If it come, thou art the more gently dispossessed of the happiness thou hadst, and the more firmly prepared.
