A preoccupied person may seem listless and thoughtless, but the really listless and thoughtless have not mental energy to be preoccupied.

How to use absorbed in a sentence?

  1. Melissa Goetz:

    What we really like about this bill is it's something that can happen sooner rather than later, and it can be absorbed and included into whatever The FDA is doing to improve, as well, looking ahead to the next near, or next five years, just really continuing the conversation on rare disease.

  2. C. C. Colton:

    How small a portion of our life it is that we really enjoy! In youth we are looking forward to things that are to come; in old age we are looking backward to things that are gone past; in manhood, although we appear indeed to be more occupied in things that are present, yet even that is too often absorbed in vague determinations to be vastly happy on some future day when we have time.

  3. Blaise Pascal:

    When I consider the small span of my life absorbed in the eternity of all time, or the small part of space which I can touch or see engulfed by the infinite immensity of spaces that I know not and that know me not, I am frightened and astonished to see myself here instead of there... now instead of then.

  4. Tim Steffen:

    You can think of it as concrete where the water is not being absorbed into the soils ; it's all just running off, downstream of those fire scars all that water is running off, some debris as well from the fire, and that can clog culverts. Those areas are susceptible to flash flooding more so than those areas that haven't been burned.

  5. Antonin Artaud:

    It is almost impossible to be a doctor and an honest man, but it is obscenely impossible to be a psychiatrist without at the same time bearing the stamp of the most incontestable madness: that of being unable to resist that old atavistic reflex of the mass of humanity, which makes any man of science who is absorbed by this mass a kind of natural and inborn enemy of all genius.
