Examples of magical in a Sentence

  1. Andrew Schneider:

    As a scientist, I am not sure anymore that life can be reduced to a class struggle, to dialectical materialism, or any set of formulas. Life is spontaneous and it is unpredictable, it is magical. I think that we have struggled so hard with the tangible that we have forgotten the intangible.

  2. Bernie Sanders:

    I wish I could tell you I had a magical formula for how to end racism. It's gone on in this country for before it was America, let me just say this, because I'm older than you: You're impatient, and you should be impatient. But if we were standing here 30 years ago and somebody said, 'You know, I think in 2008, the United States of America will elect an African-American president,' you know what people in this room would've said? They would've said, 'You are crazy. That will never happen because America has too much racist baggage.' But it happened. So, I guess you're right to be impatient, but we have made progress in this country. Not enough.

  4. Melissa Cobb:

    I grew up reading Dahl stories and lived large parts of my young life in those magical worlds, so finding just the right creative partner to bring Willy Wonka, Charlie and the Oompa-Loompas to life in animation was a daunting task... until Taika Waititi walked into the room, then it was really obvious. If Dahl had created a character of a filmmaker to adapt his work, I'm pretty sure he would have created Taika Waititi.

  5. Shah Asad Rizvi:

    Dance as the narration of a magical story; that recites on lips, illuminates imaginations and embraces the most sacred depths of souls
