How to use motionless in a sentence?

  1. John Davy:

    There is not a flower or bird in sight, only a small screen on which lines are moving, while the child sits almost motionless, pushing at the keyboard with one finger. As a learning environment, it may be mentally rich, but it is perceptually extremely impoverished. No smells or tastes, no wind or bird song (unless the computer is programmed to produce electronic tweets), no connection with soil, water, sunlight, warmth, the actual learning environment is almost autistic in quality, impoverished sensually, emotionally, and socially.

  2. C. S. Lewis:

    Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket--safe, dark, motionless, airless--it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.

  3. Debasish Mridha, M.D.:

    Life is in infinite motion; at the same time it is motionless.

  4. Mehmet Murat ildan:

    Before making a great movement, stay motionless for a good while! If you give legs to the rocks, they will start running like crazy horses! Stillness accumulates liveliness; laziness accumulates industriousness; sleep accumulates motion!

  5. Ben Crump:

    There's video that the family understands exists, that after seven minutes of him laying motionless on the ground, they did put him in handcuffs, so we're demanding that the other police bodycam video be released so the world can see that they continued to show disrespect to unarmed Black people.
