Examples of tranquil in a Sentence

  1. Adlai E. Stevenson, Jr:

    Patriotism is not a short and frenzied outburst of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime.

  2. Henry Ward Beecher:

    Our days are a kaleidoscope. Every instant a change takes place in the contents. New harmonies, new contrasts, new combinations of every sort. Nothing ever happens twice alike. The most familiar people stand each moment in some new relation to each other, to their work, to surrounding objects. The most tranquil house, with the most serene inhabitants, living upon the utmost regularity of system, is yet exemplifying infinite diversities.

  3. Maria Montessori:

    If we can, when we have established individual discipline, arrange the children, sending each one to his own place, in order, trying to make them understand the idea that thus placed they look well, and that it is a good thing to be thus placed in order, that it is a good and pleasing arrangement in the room, this ordered and tranquil adjustment of theirs -- then their remaining in their places, quiet and silent, is the result of a species of lesson, not an imposition. To make them understand the idea, without calling their attention too forcibly to the practice, to have them assimilate a principle of collective order -- that is the important thing.

  4. Leonard Bernstein:

    A liberal is a man or a woman or a child who looks forward to a better day, a more tranquil night, and a bright, infinite future.

  5. Hung Tzu-ch'eng:

    When the mind is possessed of reality, it feels tranquil and joyous even without music or song, and it produces a pure fragrance even without incense or tea.
