How to use negation in a sentence?

  1. Richard Livingstone:

    There is no virtue in being uncritical nor is it a habit to which the young are given. But criticism is only the burying beetle that gets rid of what is dead, and, since the world lives by creative and constructive forces, and not by negation and destruction, it is better to grow up in the company of prophets than of critics.

  2. Andrea Dworkin:

    Romantic love, in pornography as in life, is the mythic celebration of female negation. For a woman, love is defined as her willingness to submit to her own annihilation. The proof of love is that she is willing to be destroyed by the one whom she loves, for his sake. For the woman, love is always self-sacrifice, the sacrifice of identity, will, and bodily integrity, in order to fulfill and redeem the masculinity of her lover.

  3. Skye Wheeler:

    It's the brutal recruitment that is the most heart wrenching, forces come through their village and grab them and force them into fighting. It's an absolute negation of their basic rights as children, but also as people, not to be treated just as cannon fodder.

  4. Huang Qifan:

    The pandemic has exposed weak links in the old globalization model... China and other countries must rethink and readjust global industrial layout, however, the adjustment is not a total negation of globalization... such a move would be shooting ones own foot. The right approach is to open further, instead of taking a 180-degree turn.

  5. José Ortega y Gasset:

    An unemployed existence is a worse negation of life than death itself.
