How to use forlorn in a sentence?

  1. Arthur Garfield Hays:

    Indignation boils my blood at the thought of the heritage we are throwing away; at the thought that, with few exceptions, the fight for freedom is left to the poor, forlorn and defenseless, and to the few radicals and revolutionaries who would make use of liberty to destroy, rather than to maintain, American institutions.

  2. Michael Warner:

    We will be there, we will do our best, but I'm trained to save people, not to use a checklist to decide if people are going to live or die, but that's where we're head and that's my biggest fear and I think a lot of healthcare workers are beyond angry, I think we're really forlorn about the situation we find ourselves in.

  3. David Cannington:

    Amidst market turbulence there is a call to arms for the G20 to get the global economy back on track, while we can hope for a substantive policy prescription, it's a forlorn one. There is simply too much self-interest globally and that dominates group interest.
