How to use effectual in a sentence?

  1. Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia:

    Reason and free inquiry are the only effectual agents against error.

  2. William Lamb, 2nd Viscount Melbourne:

    Neither man nor woman can be worth anything until they have discovered that they are fools. This is the first step towards becoming either estimable or agreeable; and until it be taken there is no hope. The sooner the discovery is made the better, as there is more time and power for taking advantage of it. Sometimes the great truth is found out too late to apply to it any effectual remedy. Sometimes it is never found at all; and these form the desperate and inveterate causes of folly, self-conceit, and impertinence.

  3. Emeasoba George:

    There can be no growth without a change. There is equally no sustainable change without a growth. This implies, growth and change are intermingling. But, a change is never easy initially. It often comes with anxiety, loss and sometimes pains. Nevertheless, when a change is given a chance, its end result is most times worth the pains that come with it. So, dare to pave way for a positive change. Better still, an attitudinal change. Because a change that begins with ones attitude is always effectual and perpetual too. Therefore, this is a call to imbibe an attitudinal change spirit, whoever you are and wherever you are.

  4. Seneca:

    The path of precept is long, that of example short and effectual.

  5. Pliny the Elder:

    Why is it that we entertain the belief that for every purpose odd numbers are the most effectual?
