How to use careless in a sentence?

  1. Marc Broude:

    If your stories were real I would scream my dissolution amongst the searching soul; if wishes were not so unreal I would disappear, careless, in the wind; and if words were not all vain and meaningless I would tell everyone that life is a state of mind and we are nothing but what we have been told. If changing the world really meant something I would form a new fucking republic; and if truth existed I would kill philosophy; if god existed I would be scared.

  2. Albert Einstein:

    Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.
