How to use insignificant in a sentence?

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Firework” is a wonderful self-empowerment anthem by Katy Perry, in my view. This highly inspirational song is directed exclusively towards most people with untapped and unrealized potential. The song says loud and clear that every one of us is essentially a firework, which may seem ordinary, ineffective, ugly, or covered in an insignificant wrapping. And yet, when the right situation arises, like a flame brought to a fuse, they would ignite and show how amazing, extraordinary, and beautiful each one of them is in actuality. What an awesome and powerful positive message, and so true too!

  2. Nic Talbott:

    Not only was my career being ripped away from me, but it made me feel so insignificant to have that announcement made on that platform by the president of the United States. It was absolutely awful.

In fact, you are not insignificant at all. ~Emeasoba George

  4. Mahatma Gandhi:

    Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.
