Examples of instincts in a Sentence

  1. Ezio Auditore da Firenze:

    Silenzio. Silenzio. Twenty-two years ago, I stood where I stand now – and watched my loved ones die, betrayed by those I had called friends. Vengeance clouded my mind. It would have consumed me, were it not for the wisdom of a few strangers, who taught me to look past my instincts. They never preached answers, but guided me to learn from myself. We don't need anyone to tell us what to do; not Savonarola, not the Medici. We are free to follow our own path. There are those who will take that freedom from us, and too many of you gladly give it. But it is our ability to choose – whatever you think is true – that makes us human... There is no book or teacher to give you the answers, to show you the path. Choose your own way! Do not follow me, or anyone else.

  2. Aleister Crowley:

  3. Jeff Gordon:

  4. Nicole Trunfio:

    As much as I read, and as many classes as I took, I always believed my instincts would guide me — and I was right, there was no buffer period between me before and me as a mum; as soon as he arrived, that’s all I was.

  5. Erik Meyersson:

    Some of Erdogan's more drastic authoritarian moves are likely the result of political survival instincts, in practice, this would mean retaining control over leadership of the party - somewhat peculiar given that he's not the official head of the party any more - and appointing lieutenants personally loyal to himself.
