Examples of labyrinthine in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Interestingly, it's the imperfection that makes things beautiful, even though this viewpoint may seem labyrinthine. Absolute perfection is often unattainable in reality, and yet so many imperfect things can be breathtakingly beautiful. So it must be that either the Perfection is overrated, or that our Imperfections must be making us so unique - and hence most beautiful. I like what Marilyn Monroe said decades ago: "Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring." So, go ahead and celebrate your differentiating differentness - including the imperfections that make you so beautiful.
