Examples of jesting in a Sentence

  1. Robin Green:

    I am...blood. That primordial ooze. Not out there, listeners, in here. Inside this skin we wear, it only lets us think we're something else-- nice clean brains, little talking computers running around in the pursuit of happiness. We pierce this skin and what do we see Warm ooze, protoplasm churning and jesting, defecating, pulsating, life, death.

  2. Johann von Goethe:

    Nature understands no jesting. She is always true, always serious, always severe. She is always right, and the errors are always those of man.
