Examples of reasonable in a Sentence

  1. Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve:

  2. Andy Jassy:

    If you want more protection, which I think is totally reasonable, the federal government should regulate it, i wish they'd hurry up -- if they don't, you're going to have 50 different laws in 50 different states.

  3. Emeasoba George:

    Losers do quit when they are fed up. But on the other hand, winners never quit until they win. What actually do I intend to say? Am just saying that, giving up before succeeding is what makes anybody a loser. Whereas, never quitting is what distinguishes a winner from a loser. Therefore, never be fed up with anything positive in life, until you emerge a success. In case you don't know? What lies ahead of you could be far much better than anything you ever thought possible. Anyway, I guess that's a reasonable reason why you shouldn't give up on your faith until you succeed.

  4. Jeff Sessions:

    We wanted a healthy and good relationship with [ California ], but federal law determines immigration policy, he said.The state of California is not entitled to block that activity.
