How to use banal in a sentence?

  1. 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.

  2. Luis Buñuel:

    All my life I've been harassed by questions: Why is something this way and not another? How do you account for that? This rage to understand, to fill in the blanks, only makes life more banal. If we could only find the courage to leave our destiny to chance, to accept the fundamental mystery of our lives, then we might be closer to the sort of happiness that comes with innocence.

  3. Michael Bloomberg:

    I find the level of discourse and discussion distressingly banal and an outrage and an insult to the voters.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
