Examples of jarring in a Sentence

  1. Jerrold Mundis:

    I am years gone from my family and miles away ... but they raid by telephone with jarring suddenness they have the cyclic constancy of a mortgage and they are inevitable and relentless, like the erosion of my remaining youth. Like certain frightening dreams, my family returns.

  2. The Indian-born producer:

    Just moving around so much, literally every two years, i didn't feel like I had a friend until I was 18. If you're moving to a different school, let alone a different country every couple years, it's kind of jarring as a kid. There was no consistency for me in a cultural context.

  3. Brad Pitt:

I heard one lawyer say, ‘No one wins in court—it's just a matter of who gets hurt worse.’ And it seems to be true, you spend a year just focused on building a case to prove your point and why you're right and why they're wrong, and it's just an investment in vitriolic hatred.
