Examples of unassailable in a Sentence

  1. Henrik Ibsen:

    Ah, I fancy it is just the same with most of what you call your emancipation. You have read yourself into a number of new ideas and opinions. You have got a sort of smattering of recent discoveries in various fields -- discoveries that seem to overthrow certain principles which have hitherto been held impregnable and unassailable. But all this has only been a matter of intellect, Miss West -- superficial acquisition. It has not passed into your blood.

  2. James Arthur Baldwin:

The chamber responded to the D.O.J. request with what they deemed to be totally accurate numbers. They didn’t want to have a public debate about other numbers at the same time.

  5. James Baldwin:

    No one is more dangerous than he who imagines himself pure in heart: for his purity, by definition, is unassailable.
