Examples of resemblance in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Life bears an astonishingly closer resemblance to the boxing game IMHO. You see, in a boxing game, the boxer is declared defeated not when he has fallen but when he has refused to get up. That's why in life it doesn't matter how many times you fall; yet what matters in reality is how often you get up and rise. Good luck, my friend!

  2. Doug Baldwin:

    I think the fundamental question at the core of it was, What am I trying to accomplish here ? with the thought process of not playing football again, essentially what it comes down to is, Can my body do this and me still have a resemblance of a quality of life afterward ?

    True, I am often attired in a sweatshirt and ball cap, and yes, I do share a certain resemblance with the culprit, i've also been spotted in Medford on more than one occasion, (a lovely town by any standard.) However, I am not.

  4. Abdelhamid Abaaoud:

    I suddenly saw my picture all over the media, but alhamdulillah( thanks be to God), the kuffar( infidels) were blinded by Allah, i was even stopped by an officer who contemplated me so as to compare me to the picture, but he let me go, as he did not see the resemblance.

  5. Selahattin Demirtas:

    Why do the people not rebel against them even for all this oppression? How do they manage this? They do it by the Presidency of Religious Affairs (PRA). The do the silencing by PRA. So I call that the religion has become a hostage of these (AKP). They are using the religion as a stick, they hit everybody who raises his head with this stick. Anybody who rebels against poverty, unemployment they hit with religion. Don't misunderstand me, this stick is not the religion sent from Allah, this is the religion of the state and government. It bears no resemblance to Islam. This is why I say when the PRA is abolished religion will be free.
