Examples of actuality in a Sentence

  1. Scott C. Holstad:

    So little of what we observe is Actuality. Do we see/hear the words pouring forth? Are they Truth? I wish and hope but my future is predestined per my parents’ belief and that is denial and death, the deepest pits of hell, the thorniest of crowns, no sympathy, simply guilt, pain, anguish and lament. Call me your Anti-Savior and I’ll take on your pain too.

  2. Eugène Ionesco:

    For me, it is as though at every moment the actual world had completely lost its actuality. As though there was nothing there; as though there were no foundations for anything or as though it escaped us. Only one thing, however, is vividly present: the constant tearing of the veil of appearances; the constant destruction of everything in construction. Nothing holds together, everything falls apart.

  3. Erik Pevernagie:

    Our memory consists of bits and pieces which have made their imprint on our dreams and our life. All those fragments have enlightened or darkened the sky and the horizon of our existence. They are all instances that we don't want to forget or splinters that we can't obliterate. The mind collects them and by recalling, interpreting or idealizing them, the actuality very often becomes corroded. We experience then a "mutilated memory".--

  4. Ryan Mauro:

    It's very possible for someone to take a trip to a country like Saudi Arabia and declare it as their destination when it is in actuality just a pit stop to a different country like Yemen, based on his blatant extremism and ties to a convicted Orlando imam known for facilitating international jihadists traveling, the strong likelihood is that these trips were not benign.

  5. Mattie Breaux:

    To accept everyone for who they are because we all have a story, just accepting who I am as a person … you see all these people in the media, all over the world, these fashion icons — you’re like man I want to look like that but then in all actuality it’s so much more beautiful when you love who you are and I feel like that helped me find Mattie Breaux throughout the years.
