Examples of bitterness in a Sentence

  1. Roger Quarles Mills:

    Prohibition was introduced as a fraud; it has been nursed as a fraud. It is wrapped in the livery of Heaven, but it comes to serve the devil. It comes to regulate by law our appetites and our daily lives. It comes to tear down liberty and build up fanaticism, hypocrisy, and intolerance. It comes to confiscate by legislative decree the property of many of our fellow citizens. It comes to send spies, detectives, and informers into our homes; to have us arrested and carried before courts and condemned to fines and imprisonments. It comes to dissipate the sunlight of happiness, peace, and prosperity in which we are now living and to fill our land with alienations, estrangements, and bitterness. It comes to bring us evil - only evil - and that continually. Let us rise in our might as one and overwhelm it with such indignation that we shall never hear of it again as long as grass grows and water runs.

  2. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    Bitterness, hatred, anxiety and things like that often make life unenjoyable or unpalatable and they can shorten your life span. Oh! yes, you heard me right. But, interestingly happiness, true love, calmness and stuffs like that do make one's life enjoyable or palatable and they lead to longevity eventually. So come on, be happy and loveful all-round, no matter your present condition. ~Emeasoba George

  3. Trey Gowdy:

    I asked him once, have you ever been stopped in a circumstance when you thought you weren't doing anything wrong. He goes, 'all the time,' i never had to live with that. I don't know what that feels like. Nobody has ever stopped me walking into the Capitol, making sure I was credentialed. If there is a bitterness about it, he keeps it incredibly well concealed.

  4. Debasish Mridha, M.D.:

    Fill your heart with kindness and forgiveness, there will be no stress, anger, or bitterness.
