Examples of resemblance in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Schrodinger's Cat is a classic example of Paradox, in my view. In actuality, it was a Gedankenexperiment or a Thought Experiment, created by Austrian Physicist Erwin Schrodinger in 1935. Not many folks are probably aware that Schrodinger himself called that experiment “a ridiculous case.” Here’s the "Schrodinger's Cat" in Schrodinger's own words: “A cat is penned up in a steel chamber, along with the following device (which must be secured against direct interference by the cat): In a Geiger Counter, there is a tiny bit of radioactive substance, so small, that perhaps in the course of the hour one of the atoms decays, but also, with equal probability, perhaps none. If it (i.e. decay) happens, the Geiger Counter discharges and through a relay releases a hammer that shatters a small flask of Hydrogen Cyanide. If one has left this entire system to itself for an hour, one would say that the cat still lives if meanwhile no atom has (undergone) radioactive decay.” So you see, the cat's life or death truly depends on the formation of a subatomic alpha particle that triggers off the avalanche of electrons in the Geiger Counter. There is an equal probability that it may not happen, and hence the cat should remain both alive and dead per Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics. Philosophically speaking, Human Life is full of paradoxes, and we often find that the uncertainties therein bear a startling resemblance with Schrodinger's Cat experiment. The total randomness of events that shape our human lives, and determinedly control the outcome (i.e. future) can be extremely perplexing and equally thought-provoking as Schrodinger's Cat experiment....a pre-written and pre-destined Reductio ad absurdum perhaps!

  2. Auguste Rodin:

    If the artist only reproduces superficial features as photography does, if he copies the lineaments of a face exactly, without reference to character, he deserves no admiration. The resemblance which he ought to obtain is that of the soul.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Some people bear startling resemblance with lovely Lotus flowers that grow in the mud, and yet rise above the murkier waters as astoundingly beautiful flowers. The mud of adversities, challenges and obstacles doesn't stop their growth, but offers the nourishment and strength to rise above the dirt. I often think that it must be the strong desire, tenacity and perseverance of Lotus flower that makes her so unique in rising above and beyond the normal limitations. Lest we forget, not everything that grows in the mud turns into an elegant Lotus flower. In my view we must strive to develop the same mental strength, perseverance and passion within - so as to grow above the mud of compelling circumstances, hate, hardships, social rejections, and discriminations that we often encounter in the real world. Only then we'll be able to transform into eloquent Lotus flowers, gently opening our soft and supple petals one by one, to make our world most beautiful.

  4. Jean Cocteau:

    All good music resembles something. Good music stirs by its mysterious resemblance to the objects and feelings which motivated it.

  5. Ronald Reagan:

    Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.
