How to use hollow in a sentence?

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Freedom enables us to accept ourselves and become who we are in reality. Many a times, people trade in their reality for a role that they aren't meant to be. They willingly trade in their originality and freedom, and put on a mask to act, to please others. Such artificial , hollow and superficial life, doesn't matter how attractive it may seem, can become a chain and burdain. Be free. Be original. And you will be happy. The revilution for freedom always begins internally, on personal level first. Never trade in your freedom.
