How to use extraneous in a sentence?

  1. David Berkowitz Chicago:

    The art deprived of closeness to the world is, in fact, pure, flat, unmanageable, decorative. Totally extraneous because she herself destroyed outer. Empty and indifferent, deprived of destiny, it solves only technical issues.

  2. Roger Stone:

    It is not inconceivable now that Mr. Robert Mueller and Robert Mueller team may seek to conjure up some extraneous crime, pertaining to my business, or maybe not even pertaining to the 2016 election.

  3. The Senate:

    I can’t predict for you what extraneous items may be included (on the omnibus) but there are almost always some.

  4. Mike Braun:

    I wouldn't be for a bill that would be $ 1.8 trillion - $ 2 trillion, it's too much and there's going to be too much extraneous stuff as well.

  5. Mark Twain:

    My kind of loyalty was to one's country, not to its institutions or its officeholders. The country is the real thing, the substantial thing, the eternal thing; it is the thing to watch over, and care for, and be loyal to; institutions are extraneous, they are its mere clothing, and clothing can wear out, become ragged, cease to be comfortable, cease to protect the body from winter, disease, and death.
