Examples of rarely in a Sentence

  1. Jared Walczak:

    I get the impression that a lot of bad decisions are made in Reno, but rarely, I suspect, has any woman made that poor a choice.

  2. Gerry Carroll:

    We hear constantly about the 'two communities' in our society. But rarely in political discourse do we hear about the rich and the poor communities, people are looking at the current situation and are fed up.

  3. Manuel Emch:

    Interest in metiers d'art has grown strongly over recent years in line with interest in all things crafted and more individualistic, it's a natural evolution for the watch too. Since we have all these devices giving us the time, the watch is becoming more of a decorative piece. Besides, movement development is so time and investment-intensive that to make the mechanically unique is rarely possible in the way it is with metiers d'art.

  4. Vikrant Parsai:

    People rarely discuss the things that trouble them most.

  5. André Maurois:

    The need to express oneself in writing springs from a mal-adjustment to life, or from an inner conflict which the adolescent (or the grown man) cannot resolve in action. Those to whom action comes as easily as breathing rarely feel the need to break loose from the real, to rise above, and describe it... I do not mean that it is enough to be maladjusted to become a great writer, but writing is, for some, a method of resolving a conflict, provided they have the necessary talent.
