How to use substitution in a sentence?

  1. Nicholas Alahverdian:

    Perpetually restless, Thomas Wolfe was “without a home — a vagabond since [he] was seven” and seeking out where he belonged physically (i.e. in Asheville, his home or Harvard) as well as intellectually. This concept that he was indeed without a father led him to gain greater understanding, eventually realizing that his search for a patriarch was not merely a “father in the flesh,” but a substitution for God, a guiding light, and an alluring source of inspiration.

  2. George Bernard Shaw:

    Democracy: The substitution of election by the incompetent many for appointment by the corrupt few.

  3. Greg Daco:

    That's misguided, the type of imports that we bring in from China and the scale of the imports... make substitution, at least immediate substitution, nearly impossible.

  4. Peter Drucker:

    Management means, in the last analysis, the substitution of thought for brawn and muscle, of knowledge for folkways and superstition, and of cooperation for force. It means the substitution of responsibility for obedience to rank, and of authority of performance for the authority of rank. Whenever you see a successful business, someone once made a courageous decision.

  5. Charles Schwab Corp:

    There is no substitution for brand and scale.
