How to use chiefly in a sentence?

  1. Camden Webb:

    I think there are two factors chiefly in play – one is that a lot of folks in the banking industry don’t understand the firearms industry, but I also think that it was the regulatory environment that identified the industry as riskier than others, but now, as I ’m talking to banker friends about the industry, they are much more willing to learn about the industry and address that knowledge gap and I think that’s a great thing.

  2. Walter Lippmann:

    The ordinary politician has a very low estimate of human nature. In his daily life he comes into contact chiefly with persons who want to get something or to avoid something. Beyond this circle of seekers after privileges, individuals and organized minorities, he is aware of a large unorganized, indifferent mass of citizens who ask nothing in particular and rarely complain. The politician comes after a while to think that the art of politics is to satisfy the seekers after favors and to mollify the inchoate mass with noble sentiments and patriotic phrases.

  3. Immanuel Kant, CRITIQUE OF PURE REASON:

    Criticism alone can sever the root of materialism, fatalism, atheism, free-thinking, fanaticism, and superstition, which can be injurious universally; as well as of idealism and skepticism, which are dangerous chiefly to the Schools, and hardly allow of being handed on to the public.

  4. Zelda Fitzgerald:

    She refused to be bored chiefly because she wasnt boring.

  5. Miguel de Cervantes:
