Examples of nearer in a Sentence

  1. Lydia Child:

    The nearer society approaches to divine order, the less separation will there be in the characters, duties, and pursuits of men and women. Women will not become less gentle and graceful, but men will become more so. Women will not neglect the care and education of their children, but men will find themselves ennobled and refined by sharing those duties with them; and will receive, in return, co-operation and sympathy in the discharge of various other duties, now deemed inappropriate to women. The more women become rational companions, partners in business and in thought, as well as in affection and amusement, the more highly will men appreciate home.

  2. Karl Battams:

    NEOWISE is a really crucial satellite for nearer or potentially hazardous asteroids, it's a really important satellite to have.

  3. John Burroughs:

    The lesson which life repeats and constantly enforces is 'look under foot.' You are always nearer the divine and the true sources of your power than you think.

  4. John J. Ferguson:

    I suppose that the nearer a conception comes towards finality, the nearer the dynamic relation out of which this concept arose, inevitably draws to a close. So it may be surmised, on one hand, to know is to lose. It may be argued, then, tis better to be ignorant, and blissful!

  5. Jean Baudrillard:

    Holidays are in no sense an alternative to the congestion and bustle of cities and work. Quite the contrary. People look to escape into an intensification of the conditions of ordinary life, into a deliberate aggravation of those conditions: further from nature, nearer to artifice, to abstraction, to total pollution, to well above average levels of stress, pressure, concentration and monotony -- this is the ideal of popular entertainment. No one is interested in overcoming alienation; the point is to plunge into it to the point of ecstasy. That is what holidays are for.
