Examples of primal in a Sentence

  1. Barack Obama:

    It is a primal emotion, fear, one that we all experience.  And it can be contagious, spreading through societies, and through nations, for me, and I know for so many of you, faith is the great cure for fear. Jesus is a good cure for fear. God gives believers the power, the love, the sound mind required to conquer any fear. And what more important moment for that faith than right now?

  2. Ramana Pemmaraju:

    Since eternity, mankind has denied what was to be deeply understood and transformed, all the emotions that were primal in one's progress in higher consciousness, was subjugated, condemned so deeply that we are still struck with basic human body, making it impossible to transcend towards self-realization. All forms of art are just devices to go within, from outer to inner journey.”

  3. William Wordsworth:

    What though the radiance which was once so bright Be not forever taken from my sight, Though nothing can bring back the hour Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;Grief not, rather find, Strength in what remains behind, In the primal sympathy Which having been must ever be, In the soothing thoughts that spring Out of Human suffering, In the faith that looks through death In years that bring philophic mind.

  4. Katy Perry:

    When people sing back the words that you’ve written that have been so personal to you… and they sing them back with such confidence and belief, you’re like ‘Oh God I’m not alone in my own problems,’ and it makes me feel connected to humans, and at our primal state we all we want is connection. It’s the only reason that we do anything that we do.

  5. Keira Knightley:

    The love thing is astonishing. It’s a very primal, primal love. That’s quite extraordinary, and the ability to have no sleep and continue going. It’s not pleasant —I never thought that I could actually do it for the amount of time that I’ve done it.
