How to use jovial in a sentence?

  1. Cecil Williams:

    It is a relationship that we have, he's very jovial, open and a lot of fun, but he's also very serious.

  2. Jerome K. Jerome:

    The shy man does have some slight revenge upon society for the torture it inflicts upon him. He is able, to a certain extent, to communicate his misery.

  3. Barack Obama:

    Yogi Berra was an American original -- a Hall of Famer and humble veteran; prolific jokester and jovial prophet, he epitomized what it meant to be a sportsman and a citizen, with a big heart, competitive spirit, and a selfless desire to open baseball to everyone, no matter their background. Michelle and I offer our deepest condolences to his family, his friends, and his fans in New York and across the world.

  4. Johann von Goethe:

    It is a mistake for a taciturn, serious-minded woman to marry a jovial man, but not for a serious-minded man to marry a lighthearted woman.
