Examples of inexorably in a Sentence

  1. Arati Prabhakar:

    In a world in which pace is inexorably increasing ... the military’s current approach to harnessing complexity is outdated and inadequate, and risks leaving the nation vulnerable to adversaries developing more nimble means of adopting the latest technologies.

  2. Quentin Crisp:

    Father Time is not always a hard parent, and, though he tarries for none of his children, often lays his hand lightly upon those who have used him well making them old men and women inexorably enough, but leaving their hearts and spirits young and in full vigour. With such people the grey head is but the impression of the old fellow's hand in giving them his blessing, and every wrinkle but a notch in the quiet calendar of a well-spent life.

  3. Irwin Redlener:

    We need to really understand how health and education are inexorably linked, this is the case for all children, but is especially important for children who face additional chronic adversities like poverty, toxic stress or chronic illness.

  4. Dan Fagre:

    The trend right now is that they are inexorably going into their final demise. There is no chance they will go into rebirth, in several decades they will be mostly gone. They will grow so small that they will disappear. They will certainly be gone before the end of the century.

  5. Margaret Mead:

    The prophet who fails to present a bearable alternative and yet preaches doom is part of the trap that he postulates. Not only does he picture us caught in a tremendous man-made or God-made trap from which there is no escape, but we must also listen to him day in, day out, describe how the trap is inexorably closing. To such prophecies the human race, as presently bred and educated and situated, is incapable of listening. So some dance and some immolate themselves as human torches; some take drugs and some artists spill their creativity in sets of randomly placed dots on a white ground.
