Examples of hopelessly in a Sentence

  1. Lionel Trilling:

    A theory of the middle class: that it is not to be determined by its financial situation but rather by its relation to government. That is, one could shade down from an actual ruling or governing class to a class hopelessly out of relation to government, thinking of government as beyond its control, of itself as wholly controlled by government. Somewhere in between and In gradations is the group that has the sense that gov't exists for it, and shapes its consciousness accordingly.

  2. Andy and Larry Wachowski, The Matrix, 1999:

  3. Democratic State Assemblyman Albert Muratsuchi:

    I wanted to do something different and have California lead by example, while our nation's capital is hopelessly divided along party lines and President Trump is putting immigrant families and children in cages, the California Legislature with HR 77 will be issuing an official, bipartisan measure for its own actions taken that led to the incarceration of over 120,000 loyal Americans of Japanese ancestry behind barbed wire.

  4. Stephen Miller:

    Joe Biden has horrendously and hopelessly politicized the DOJ by using them as an arm of the Democratic Party, filing frivolous litigation solely for political – not legal – reasons. This is a clear violation of legal ethics and it warrants a full investigation into who directed these deeply offensive and utterly meritless lawsuits against the states which clearly have no legal basis whatsoever.

  5. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe:

    None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.
