How to use consolation in a sentence?

  1. Claude Lévi-Strauss:

    Our system is the height of absurdity, since we treat the culprit both as a child, so as to have the right to punish him, and as an adult, in order to deny him consolation.

  2. Ryan McCormick:

    When a celebrity is officially dropped from a brand the publicist should focus immediately on providing comfort and consolation, send a big gift basket and be there 24/7 for them, they should also give reassurances about the future and offer actions about what that celebrity can take to make their situation better. Telling a client to drop out of the public eye for a few months isn't a bad idea. Right now the world is moving so fast and most people have a very short attention span. The likelihood of a global event or national scandal eclipsing what your client had been involved in is reasonably high. Let time heal.

  3. Mr Shalehan:

    When( they) offered me the' consolation prize,' I felt a bit insulted.

  4. Plutarch:

    It is the usual consolation of the envious, if they cannot maintain their superiority, to represent those by whom they are surpassed as inferior to some one else.

  5. Martin Gore:

    When I write love songs, people think they're really soppy -- but I see love as a consolation for the boredom of life.
