How to use banal in a sentence?

  1. Adrian Frutiger:

    If you remember the shape of your spoon at lunch, it has to be the wrong shape. The spoon and the letter are tools; one to take food from the bowl, the other to take information off the page... When it is a good design, the reader has to feel comfortable because the letter is both banal and beautiful.

  2. Joyce Carol Oates:

    How does the poet transform his banal thoughts (are not most thoughts banal?) into such stunning forms, into beauty?

  3. Alexis Charles Henri Clrel de Tocqueville:

    Nothing is quite so wretchedly corrupt as an aristocracy which has lost its power but kept its wealth and which still has endless leisure to devote to nothing but banal enjoyments. All its great thoughts and passionate energy are things of the past, and nothing but a host of petty, gnawing vices now cling to it like worms to a corpse.

  4. Raoul Vaneigem:

    Everything has been said yet few have taken advantage of it. Since all our knowledge is essentially banal, it can only be of value to minds that are not.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Lundi semble être le jour le plus incompris et ingrate, même si lundi signifie le début d'une nouvelle semaine de travail, et la meilleure occasion d'un nouveau départ 52 fois par année. à mon avis, quand vous avez une passion pour ce que vous faites dans votre vie, tout et tous les jours de la semaine devient une merveilleuse journée à la hâte. Tous les lundis devient alors magique lundi, au lieu de lundi banal, seulement avec votre amour et passion pour votre travail.
