Examples of momentary in a Sentence

  1. Bill McInturff:

    When you see a number this different, it means you might be right on top of a shift in the campaign, what you don't know yet is if the change is going to take place or if it is a momentary 'pause' before the numbers snap back into place.

  2. Carl DeHaven:

    Just A Thought Thinking in the present requires choice to do so. To be here now is more than a momentary thing...it's a way of life. It is true that the choices we make determine our lives. Regardless of what others think, do, say, we have the ability to handle our reaction to that which occurs about us. It's one of our abilities that when exercised will aid efforts to live a more enhanced life. We all have an inherent aspect that when realized enables us to live as chosen. Potential is like fuel in da' tank...we all have a "tank of potential" that awaits a turning of key. KnowyerLoved, CWD

  3. William Barr:

    In any age, the so-called progressives treat politics as their religion. Their holy mission is to use the coercive power of the State to remake man and society in their own image, according to an abstract ideal of perfection. Whatever means they use are therefore justified because, by definition, they are a virtuous people pursing a deific end. They are willing to use any means necessary to gain momentary advantage in achieving their end, regardless of collateral consequences and the systemic implications. They never ask whether the actions they take could be justified as a general rule of conduct, equally applicable to all sides.

  4. Lord Chesterfield:

  5. Attorney General Muhammad Prasetyo:

    It's just a momentary reaction, what we're doing is carrying out court decisions.
