How to use comforting in a sentence?

  1. James Thurber:

    Philosophy offers the rather cold consolation that perhaps we and our planet do not actually exist; religion presents the contradictory and scarcely more comforting thought that we exist but that we cannot hope to get anywhere until we cease to exist. Alcohol, in attempting to resolve the contradiction, produces vivid patterns of Truth which vanish like snow in the morning sun and cannot be recalled; the revelations of poetry are as wonderful as a comet in the skies -- and as mysterious. Love, which was once believed to contain the Answer, we now know to be nothing more than an inherited behavior pattern.

  2. Stacy Deasy:

My feelings are irrelevant to be honest.

  5. Buzz Aldrin:

    We landed very, very close to where we were supposed to be, and there’s nothing more comforting to be descending down, and pretty soon the pressure on the outside is more than the pressure on the inside and we began to smell salt air, then we knew we were home.
