Examples of rightness in a Sentence

  1. Archibald MacLeish:

    Once you permit those who are convinced of their own superior rightness to censor and silence and suppress those who hold contrary opinions, just at that moment the citadel has been surrendered. For the American citadel is a man. Not man in general. Not man in the abstract. Not the majority of men. But man. That man. His worth. His uniqueness.

  2. Louis Caprioli:

    Djamel Beghal has a gift for being able to convince on the rightness of Djamel Beghal cause, anyone who came into contact with Djamel Beghal could not have helped but become more radicalized.

  3. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    Each of us has his hidden negative side of the person, someone demonstrates it, someone hides it, but this is the part of us that is not us, but only a parody of us. This is what we seek to suppress in ourselves. We suppress egoism in ourselves and move to a new level of consciousness where we will not be alone. Since love is much better than loneliness in selfishness. Since it is precisely the main power of the dark side of the personality that is the manipulation of egoism. Of course, a person changes in his face and his eyes glow in his eyes because he does not see his own wine and what is happening. Such a person becomes blind in his head. False righteousness leads away from the truth. There are no bad people because we simply don’t realize what we are doing. A man is covered with dark energy, anger turning into black hatred. A person is tempted that only he is right so he gets an illusory superiority and his face is completely lost. The soul of such a person becomes black. A sense of rightness does not give him comfort, because evil will never have comfort, only hatred in the soul. It is impregnated with energy, turning into a certain entity and it is clear that it is contagious. Man, as it were, demonstrates pride. But often, as you probably noticed, such people left little of humanity in themselves. The dark energy of arrogant hatred destroys us from within and life is completely meaningless. This is not just reasoning, it is a pattern that surrounds us. Whereas love and forgiveness returns us the true form of self. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich

  4. Robert Corn-Revere:

    It reaffirms that the rule of law governs local law enforcement officials, no matter how convinced they are of their own rightness, the sheriff's naked threat of government power did not fool the court.
