Examples of seductive in a Sentence

  1. SithEmperorRevan:

    SithEmperorRevan, the Seductive Sith, the Revenant Himself, Victory at all costs, even if it means sacrificing someone (or something) you love.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    You can always differentiate cheap restaurants from high-class restaurants by looking at the menus that they offer. Cheap and low class restaurants always talk about "You", like "All You Can Eat", "Your Choice" etc. High class and expensive restaurants, on the other hand, always offer their own terms, such as "Chef's Choice", "Gourmet Food" etc. When you are the best and cut above the rest, you don't need to lure with inciting and seductive language to attract. Your quality par excellence and high standards will do that job very well. Strive to be extraordinary, and the world will follow you.

  3. Kilburn Hall:

    I never listen to the naysayers. I had an ex-wife like that. She and her people would always say, “No one will ever buy that, listen to that, want that.” Which probably explains why she is my ex-wife. It’s always seductive to hang around people who have failed at something and have them tell you how mean the business is — whatever your business is — and how unfair it is and how they got screwed by a bunch of people that didn’t care. It’s easy to find failures, and it’s easy to be seduced by failure. It’s much easier to think, “Well, everybody else has failed; no big deal if I do,” than to ignore that and plod on the other way. It takes love and passion for what you do to overcome that and to overcome the “Naysayers.”

  4. David Axelrod:

    There may be a seductive belief that by naming a running mate, you can magically erase political deficits, but at the end of the day, voters select the person on the top of the ticket, not the understudy.

  5. E. B. White:

    If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world, and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.
