How to use novelty in a sentence?

  1. Clive Staples Lewis:

    The perfect church service would be the one we were almost unaware of our attention would have been on God. But every novelty prevents this. It fixes our attention on the service itself and thinking about worship is a different thing than worshipping ... 'Tis mad idolatry that makes the service greater than the god.

  2. Daniel J. Boorstin:

    It is only a short step from exaggerating what we can find in the world to exaggerating our power to remake the world. Expecting more novelty than there is, more greatness than there is, and more strangeness than there is, we imagine ourselves masters of a plastic universe. But a world we can shape to our will is a shapeless world.

  3. Marcel Proust:

    The paradoxes of today are the prejudices of tomorrow, since the most benighted and the most deplorable prejudices have had their moment of novelty when fashion lent them its fragile grace.

  4. Bill Begley:

    It turns out that it was a novelty grenade that a young person had packed in their bags but we didn't know that, so immediately the protocols were put in place.

  5. Caroline Bremner:

    At some point the introduction of tech has to be functional, not just novelty, and there's a danger that hospitality goes toward gimmick.
