How to use repulsive in a sentence?

  1. George Santayana:

    The irrational in the human has something about it altogether repulsive and terrible, as we see in the maniac, the miser, the drunkard or the ape.

  2. Fergus Cullen:

    He's not competing for Trump's 30%, he's competing for the 40% of the party that finds Trump repulsive and wants someone to punch him in the nose.

  3. Max Wise:

    The disgusting comments by Gov. Bevin insinuating that a peaceful protest by teachers would lead to sexual assault are reprehensible, i don't agree with these comments I find them repulsive.

  4. Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi:

    Instead of hypocritical displays of compassion and repulsive bragging, you should end your economic and medical terrorism so that medicine and medical supplies can reach medical staff and the Iranian people, we do not need American doctors.

  5. Leo Tolstoy:

    A Frenchman is self-assured because he regards himself personally both in mind and body as irresistibly attractive to men and women. An Englishman is self-assured as being a citizen of the best-organized state in the world and therefore, as an Englishman, always knows what he should do and knows that all he does as an Englishman is undoubtedly correct. An Italian is self-assured because he is excitable and easily forgets himself and other people. A Russian is self-assured just because he knows nothing and does not want to know anything, since he does not believe that anything can be known. The German's self-assurance is worst of all, stronger and more repulsive than any other, because he imagines that he knows the truth -- science -- which he himself has invented but which is for him the absolute truth.
