Examples of nineteenth in a Sentence

  1. Devoney Looser:

    If we don't recreate Austen's nineteenth-century stories for our own time, and attract new generations of viewers, then these texts won't live on, so I'm definitely all for adaptations that use Austen's material as an inspiration, and make their own mark on it, rather than treating Jane Austen originals as blueprints that must be religiously copied.

  2. Ludwig Von Mises:

    Those who call themselves 'liberals' today are asking for policies which are precisely the opposite of those policies which the liberals of the nineteenth century advocated in their liberal programs. The so-called liberals of today have the very popular idea that freedom of speech, of thought, of the press, freedom of religion, freedom from imprisonment without trial -- that all these freedoms can be preserved in the absence of what is called economic freedom. They do not realize that, in a system where there is no market, where the government directs everything, all those other freedoms are illusory, even if they are made into laws and written up in constitutions.

  3. Frank Furedi:

    Historically some of the most prosperous societies - Ancient Athens, Renaissance Italy, nineteenth century Britain - were among those that were most oriented towards experimentation and the taking of risks.

  4. Reverend W. Awdry (1911 - 1997):

    [Of the parralels between the railways and the church] both had their heyday in the mid-nineteenth century; both own a great deal of Gothic-style architecture which is expensive to maintain; both are regularly assailed by critics; and both are firmly convinced that they are the best means of getting man to his ultimate destination.

  5. Joan Didion:

    The secret point of money and power in America is neither the things that money can buy nor power for power's sake... but absolute personal freedom, mobility, privacy. It is the instinct which drove America to the Pacific, all through the nineteenth century, the desire to be able to find a restaurant open in case you want a sandwich, to be a free agent, live by one's own rules.
