How to use fallible in a sentence?

  1. Emeasoba George:

    Those who follow God's direction or will in life cannot be misdirected and frustrated. Yes! because, God is ever infallible unlike humans who are fallible. Thus, do follow God's direction or will for your life. Because, sooner or later, you will be glad that you did. Besides, God's will or direction is the best for you.

  2. Jorge Luis Borges:

    To fall in love is to create a religion that has a fallible god.

  3. Emeasoba George:

    Fallibility is simply defined as state of being capable of making mistakes or being wrong sometimes. Permit me to tell you this, every human is fallible in nature. Yes! you heard me right as usual, even the Pope himself is fallible in nature. That is to say, there is no exception to what I'm writing or talking about. Although, he (the Pope) is widely regarded as infallible according to the dogma of the Roman catholic church. But come on, is the pope (a) catholic? Nevertheless, it is delusion to regard any human as infallible. I mean, anyone who regards any other human as incapable of making mistakes or being wrong is nothing but delusive. Besides, whoever that claims to be infallible has never tried out something new before and it is only a coward who is often reluctant to try out something new, just because of fear of failure. Wait a second, is the Pope (a) catholic? Furthermore, in case you don't know, almighty God is the only one who is ever infallible. Apart from him (Almighty God) no other person is infallible naturally, regardless of world renowned professors. Anyway, do quote me right or rather you can say I said so. ~Emeasoba George

  4. Emeasoba George:

    I'm counting only on God. So, be counting only on him too. For, humans are naturally unreliable/fallible. But God is ever reliable/infallible.

  5. Stephen Breyer:

    It's an institution that's fallible, though over time it has served this country pretty well.
