Examples of momentarily in a Sentence

  1. George Steiner:

    The violent illiteracies of the graffiti, the clenched silence of the adolescent, the nonsense cries from the stage-happening, are resolutely strategic. The insurgent and the freak-out have broken off discourse with a cultural system which they despise as a cruel, antiquated fraud. They will not bandy words with it. Accept, even momentarily, the conventions of literate linguistic exchange, and you are caught in the net of the old values, of the grammars that can condescend or enslave.

  2. Brian Nunamaker:

    As a parent, you feel extremely helpless to be unable to assist the most important person in the world during such a time of emergency, worst case scenarios run through your head while you are hoping for the best. The eternity of waiting for help to arrive was surprisingly non-existent in this situation. I was surprised at how quickly help had arrived in the form of a fire truck. When the firefighters arrived on the scene, Nunamaker’s daughter was limp but she was still breathing and had a pulse. His daughter arrived at the hospital and started to have another seizure, but it stopped momentarily. Nunamaker said his daughter was later transferred to VCU and was later discharged. Nunamaker told Fox 5 DC he was hoping to put the ordeal behind him, but couldn’t when he heard the news of Kelley and Bloom’s suspension. My wife and I feel terrible for the fallout that has happened to these two gentlemen, Nunamaker said in a statement to Fox 5 DC. They simply had the best interests for our daughter's care in mind.

  3. Maria Duarte:

    We have several types of victims, not all are victims due to the destruction of their homes, there are people who remain without jobs and whose only form of sustenance was tourism, which momentarily is nonexistent.

  4. Tom Peters:

    All business success rests on something labeled a sale, which at least momentarily weds company and customer.

  5. Anonymous:

    Time heals all wounds”, isn't that what we've always been told? But, what about the scar a wound leaves behind? What will heal that? Of course medically speaking plastic surgery can erase even the mightiest of scars but in metaphoric terms: if a sad and depressing incident then the scab/scar left behind would be a memory of it and nothing can wipe out memories(or at least not something I know of, except for a severe head injury). Then again we perhaps may forget about it momentarily or for a while, but, eventually the memories will resurface, in dreams or because of a sudden flashback...so, in reality does time actually heal wounds ?
