Examples of signifying in a Sentence

  1. William Shakespeare:

    Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage And then is heard no more it is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying Nothing.

  2. William Shakespeare:

    To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow, Creeps in this petty pace from day to day To the last syllable of recorded time, And all our yesterdays have lighted fools The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player That struts and frets his hour upon the stage And then is heard no more it is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    I sometimes think that the acronyms BC and BCE probably stand for 'Before Coffee' and 'Before the Coffee Era' respectively, signifying those primitive historic years of underdevelopment. Coffee has strongly contributed to the development of many scientific breakthroughs, inventions, creative arts, and literature, IMHO. So, on National Coffee Day today, here's a Toast to the Roast - light, medium and dark alike: May your Cup of Coffee be just like the Capital of Ireland - always Dublin! Cheers!

  4. Steve Vladeck:

    Of course, those who hope Judge Gorsuch will rule in their favor on particular issues once he's confirmed would have trouble identifying clear showings of support too, that seems to be par for the course for contemporary Supreme Court confirmation hearings -- lots of sound and fury, but ultimately signifying very, very little.

  5. William Shakespeare, Macbeth, Act V, Scene V (MacBeth):

    Life is but a walking Shadow, a poor Player That struts and frets his Hour upon the Stage, And then is heard no more; It is a tall Tale, Told by an Idiot, full of Sound and Fury, Signifying nothing."
