How to use unpleasant in a sentence?

  1. Quentin Crisp:

    Euphemisms are not, as many young people think, useless verbiage for that which can and should be said bluntly; they are like secret agents on a delicate mission, they must airily pass by a stinking mess with barely so much as a nod of the head, make their point of constructive criticism and continue on in calm forbearance. Euphemisms are unpleasant truths wearing diplomatic cologne.

  2. RVM:

    Today, I will choose to be Happy no matter what. Even though things that happen around me may be unpleasant, I will not let it spoil my day.

  3. John Fitzgerald Kennedy:

  4. Mary Ann Burg:

    If people feel better prepared even if they have negative consequences, do they cope with it better than if it were an unpleasant surprise?

  5. Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice:

    We all know him to be a proud, unpleasant sort of a man; but this would be nothing if you really liked him.
