Examples of motives in a Sentence

  1. Eric Hoffer:

    The link between ideas and action is rarely direct. There is almost always an intermediate step in which the idea is overcome. De Tocqueville points out that it is at times when passions start to govern human affairs that ideas are most obviously translated into political action. The translation of ideas into action is usually in the hands of people least likely to follow rational motives. Hence, it is that action is often the nemesis of ideas, and sometimes of the men who formulate them. One of the marks of the truly vigorous society is the ability to dispense with passion as a midwife of action - the ability to pass directly from thought to action.

  2. Nick Merrill:

    I know there's a tendency to ascribe political motives to all she does. But what you saw yesterday was simply a woman who isn't going to stand by and watch other women be bullied, insulted and demeaned, and more broadly, as you heard her say in her speech, when it comes to standing up for core American values, she's going to speak out.

  3. President Obama:

    It’s very hard to interpret the motives of this shooter, as we have seen in a host of mass shootings.

  4. Alex Villanueva:

    The concept of deputy gangs has just been nothing but a political campaign waged by the board against a sheriff they want to get rid of, it's (the investigation) designed for political motives only. It's not designed to get any information because everything that we've had, we've already given to the inspector general.

  5. President Barack Obama:

    We don't yet know what the motives of the shooters are but what we do know is that there are steps we can take to make Americans safer, we should never think that this is just something that just happens in the ordinary course of events because it doesn't happen with the same frequency in other countries.
