Examples of delicately in a Sentence

  1. Paul Valery:

    ...in song the words tend to lose their significance, do often lose it, while at the other extreme, in current prose it is the musical value that tends to disappear - so that verse stands symmetrically, as it were, between song, on the one hand, and prose on the other - and is thus admirably and delicately balanced between the sensual and the intellectual power of language.

  2. Anthony Liccione:

    I put all my words on paper. Delicately my life comes in and out with the flow of ink, thinking this is the reason for this. I want to believe. The shadowed streets I had to bare, forking into the next. No spoon in my pocket to feed, absent of love. This is the reason for those cored of humanity, that feel cheated of life. How far do we run. How far do we crawl. How far, is far enough, before we return to spiral again. Salvation. Salvation is like salt in the vein, that fuels the numbness. We all want to be saved. Safe from harm and pain, preseved from the pervasive animosity that grows in the reoccurring years. But we are never safe. Vulnerable to the bitterness that we bite off and swallow.

  3. Assaf Habary:

    There are hundreds of colonies of coral that we need to relocate, one by one, delicately.

  4. Lesley Manville:

    … You’re seeing real pockets of tenderness with how [the characters] are dealing with getting older and approaching that time of their lives, i always see Cathy and Michael at the center of it all, having this 'will they, won’t they.' Will this romance happen? Is it alright to be falling in love at this time in your life with your dead husband’s best friend? It’s very tenderly and delicately written, and I think people want to see a romance that is about two middle-aged people, rather than a romance with strapping young 20-somethings.
