Examples of Immediately in a Sentence

  1. Joe Schrank:

    We think of addiction as this light switch you can turn on and off, what we're learning is that for some people, it's similar to scuba diving: You can only come up 20 feet so often or you get very, very sick. When people stop immediately and that abruptly, it really makes them vulnerable.

  2. Justice Samuel Alito:

    Given the way the confirmation process -- the interviews of senators that occur immediately upon the announcement of the nomination -- I think it would be very difficult for somebody who has not been dealing with the whole breadth of federal law that may come before the Supreme Court to be ready for those interviews, or at least to have thought about how you interpret the Constitution, how do you interpret the statutes, what do you think about precedents -- issues like that, you will be hit with all of that immediately once the nomination has been announced.

  3. Michael Smith:

  4. The Delta statement:

    Effective immediately, Delta will officially ban shipment of all lion, leopard, elephant, rhinoceros and buffalo trophies worldwide as freight.

  5. A.W. Tozer:

    As base a thing as money often is, yet it can be transmuted into everlasting treasure. It can be converted into food for the hungry and clothing for the poor. Any temporal possession can be turned into everlasting wealth. Whatever is given to Christ is immediately touched with immortality. (A.W. Tozer)
