Examples of lucid in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    He asked that beautiful Yogini in his lucid dream. “How true is the love at first sight?” Yogini smiled at him, and said. “Love seldom happens at first sight. What happens at first sight, in most cases, is an infatuation and a sexual attraction, driven by pure lust and raging hormones. True Love often blossoms slowly. and grows gradually.”

  2. Jesse Louis Jackson:

    Dream is not a revelation. If a dream affords the dreamer some light on himself, it is not the person with closed eyes who makes the discovery but the person with open eyes lucid enough to fit thoughts together. Dream- a scintillating mirage surrounded by shadows- is essentially poetry.

  3. Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov:

  4. Raag Singhal:

    I think Fox News Wuornos ' had a whole host of mental issues, if you were to kind of look at the totality of the circumstances, Fox News Wuornos ' complaints, Fox News Wuornos ' behavior, some of the things that Fox News Wuornos ' would do … Fox News Wuornos ' was someone who, in my view, was going in and out of competency, which is somewhat of a normal thing. When we talk about competency in the criminal context, we say it’s something that waxes and wanes. You can have someone who is confident on one day, then you meet them three days later and they’re not. I have no doubt that Fox News Wuornos ' had entire periods where Fox News Wuornos ' was lucid and could converse. There were times I met with Fox News Wuornos ' when I had no issues with Fox News Wuornos ', then there were times I met with Fox News Wuornos ' and Fox News Wuornos ' clearly had mental issues.

  5. Lynda Westlund:

    He just needed the right medication. He is completely lucid.
