How to use unclean in a sentence?

  1. Rachel Kyte:

    I personally think it is outrageous that with all of the capabilities we have, we've got women who have the choice of imperiling their children's health or eating because they have no alternative but unclean cooking. Or the entrepreneur that can't employ any more people because his power is one hour on, six hours off, so yes, we're going to get this done earlier.

  2. The Talmud:

    He who mixes with unclean things becomes unclean himself; he whose associations are pure becomes purer each day.

  3. Andrew Schneider:

    Life's dirty. Life's unclean you know. It's birth, it's sex, it's the intestinal tract. One big squishy, unsanitary mess. It never gets any cleaner either. You know, dust to dust, worms crawl in, worms crawl out, right Even though we know that, we still walk the walk, we still live the life. We're like a bunch of little kids. Little kids, you know, we jump in this big old pond of mud and we're slapping it all over our face, rubbing our hair all down our backs and we're making these glorious, gooey, mud pies. That's us.

  4. Isam Qahwash:

    The hardest part was getting the stroller through the unclean sidewalks, it seems like they move really slow cleaning the snow here in D.C..

  5. Mahabharata:

    Entangled in a hundred worldly snares, Self-seeking men, by ignorance deluded, Strive by unrighteous means to pile up riches. Then, in their self-complacency, they say, ?This acquisition I have made to-day, That will I gain to-morrow, so much pelf Is hoarded up already, so much more Remains that I have yet to treasure up. This enemy I have destroyed, him also, And others in their turn, I will despatch. I am a lord; I will enjoy myself; I?m wealthy, noble, strong, successful, happy; I?m absolutely perfect; no one else In all the world can be compared to me. Now will I offer up a sacrifice, Give gifts with lavish hand, and be triumphant.? Such men, befooled by endless vain conceits, Caught in the meshes of the world?s illusion, Immersed in sensuality, descend Down to the foulest hell of unclean spirits.*
