How to use hollow in a sentence?

  1. Charlotte Bronte:

    No mockery in the world ever sounds to me as hollow as that of being told to cultivate happiness Happiness is not a potato, to be planted in mould, and tilled with manure.

  2. Interior Department spokeswoman Heather Swift:

    It is patently false to say the Department had not engaged the board, when as recently as January 8 we were working with the board to renew their charter, schedule a meeting and fill vacancies, their hollow and dishonest political stunt should be a clear indicator of the intention of this group.

  3. Shoryu Bradley:

    Zazen is the dragons roar. This dragons roar is the wind passing and whistling through a hollow tree. This can be a metaphor for your Zazen practice and or even your life. If you can let go, greatly let go, this dragons roar can manifest through you. It is much bigger than the individual.

  4. Leo Buscaglia:

    Love can never grow old. Locks may lose their brown and gold. Cheeks may fade and hollow grow. But the hearts that love will know, never winter's frost and chill, summer's warmth is in them still.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Loyalty is one of the most valuable qualities that's becoming exceedingly scarce, in personal as much as in professional life. The people and organizations who have been deeply hurt by someone whom they had trusted as a true friend or a loyal employee would surely underscore the fact that loyalty is indeed a dual-edged sword, i.e. something that can cut both ways. And yet, Loyalty is one of the most noble and admirable qualities IMHO. My respectful salute to all those exceptional individuals who have remained always loyal and ever faithful to their friends, families, organizations and nations, despite the challenging times and absolutely adverse circumstances. Our world would be totally empty, hollow, and shallow without such wonderful people. Long Live Loyalty! Kudos to Semper Fidelis!
