How to use banality in a sentence?

  1. Eugène Ionesco:

    Banality is a symptom of non-communication. Men hide behind their clichés.

  2. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    Books are like a ticket to a movie, you don't know if it's a great movie or not, the title and annotation are like a movie trailer. If the book contains schematic specifics, then the film was a success. If not, then this is a subjective banality, a fog of ignorance and ignorance and advertising of your name.

  3. Perry Brass:

  4. Susan Sontag:

  5. Erik Pevernagie:

    When life only consists of infantile first world problems and day-by-day futilities, our mind is eager for other values, which should fill the unbearable emptiness. If we are suffocating under the pressure of the banality of evil and losing out to the slowly infiltrating cancerous cells of indifference, resilience and redirection is required. ("The world was somewhere else" )
