Examples of entirely in a Sentence

  1. Steve Rabinowitz:

    We are at the point where a Jew running for office is entirely no big deal, nationally, we're there. We're so much there that for a lot of Jews the fact that Bernie Sanders does not more embrace his Jewish identity is an issue rather than the idea that he might do better if he hid it more.

    A huge thing I learned playing Flake is that these child killers that we see on the news are a lot more like the rest of us than we think, it can just take a few wrong moves or hateful comments from the people around you for you to make a decision that will turn you into something entirely different.

  3. Andrea Dworkin:

    In this society, the norm of masculinity is phallic aggression. Male sexuality is, by definition, intensely and rigidly phallic. A man's identity is located in his conception of himself as the possessor of a phallus; a man's worth is located in his pride in phallic identity. The main characteristic of phallic identity is that worth is entirely contingent on the possession of a phallus. Since men have no other criteria for worth, no other notion of identity, those who do not have phalluses are not recognized as fully human.

  4. Hamid Karzai:

    I hope (the United States) will change and they will now focus entirely on helping and building a stronger, better Afghanistan.

  5. Petroceltic International Plc:

    On the basis of the investigation it has conducted to date, the company considers the allegations to be entirely baseless, untrue and defamatory.
