Examples of colossal in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Many people often prefer the path of least resistance, and like to stay within their comfort zones. Stepping outside the comfort zone is uncomfortable for them, because of the uncertainty and chaos that may exist in the unfamiliar territory. And yet, real life often begins outside the comfort zone, and a whole new world always gets rediscovered only after going beyond the boundaries of status quo. Lest we forget, a star is often born out of colossal chaos and tremendous darkness. So, take a chance, and step outside the comfort zone - with complete confidence in yourself.

  2. Fabien Chine:

  4. Wyndham Lewis:

    With a new familiarity and a flesh-creeping homeliness entirely of this unreal, materialistic world, where all sentiment is coarsely manufactured and advertised in colossal sickly captions, disguised for the sweet tooth of a monstrous baby called the Public, the family as it is, broken up on all hands by the agency of feminist and economic propaganda, reconstitutes itself in the image of the state.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Beaucoup de gens préfèrent souvent le chemin de moindre résistance, et préfèrent rester dans leur zone de confort. Marcher en dehors de la zone de confort est inconfortable pour eux, en raison de l'incertitude et le chaos qui peut exister dans le territoire inconnu. Et pourtant, la vie commence souvent en dehors de la zone de confort, et un tout nouveau monde est toujours redécouvert qu'après aller au-delà des limites du statu quo. Ne l'oublions pas, Une étoile est née seulement du chaos colossal et énorme obscurité. Sortir de la zone de confort, avec confiance. - Deo.
