Examples of affections in a Sentence

  1. Harriet Beecher Stowe:

    Home is a place not only of strong affections, but of entire unreserved; it is life's undress rehearsal, its backroom, its dressing room, from which we go forth to more careful and guarded intercourse, leaving behind us much debris of cast-off and everyday clothing.

  2. George Sand:

    Try to keep your soul young and quivering right up to old age, and to imagine right up to the brink of death that life is only beginning. I think that is the only way to keep adding to one's talent, to one's affections, and one's inner happiness.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    It's true that Love and Fragrance cannot be concealed, and yet the public display of affection (PDA) in social media seems so superficial and artificial, e.g., when husband and wife congratulate each other on FB for their wedding anniversary or parents wish happy birthday on Internet to their children who live in the same house. The dichotomy is that the magic of sensitive and innermost personal affections begins to vanish, as they get displayed explicitly and publicly in social media.

  4. Charles Darwin:

    A scientific man ought to have no wishes, no affections, -- a mere heart of stone.

  5. Noah Webster:

    Language is not an abstract construction of the learned, or of dictionary makers, but is something arising out of the work, needs, ties, joys, affections, tastes, of long generations of humanity, and has its bases broad and low, close to the ground.
