How to use usefulness in a sentence?

  1. Josh Billings:

    My son, observe the postage stamp! Its usefulness depends upon its ability to stick to one thing until it gets there.

  2. Andy McCarthy:

    As a matter of general policy, de-radicalization programs are unproven and their usefulness is doubtful, if the judge reduces the sentence that they would have otherwise imposed in a terrorism case by relying on the hope that de-radicalization will work, that just gives an unearned reward based on an unproven theory to a serious offender.

  3. Charles Simmons:

    Promptitude is not only a duty, but is also a part of good manners; it is favorable to fortune, reputation, influence, and usefulness; a little attention and energy will form the habit, so as to make it easy and delightful.

  4. Colin Berry:

    But these reports worry people, and I think the process has lost its usefulness if all it's doing is generating worry.

  5. Author Unknown:

    A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner, neither do uninterrupted prosperity and success qualify for usefulness and happiness. The storms of adversity, like those of the ocean, rouse the faculties, and excite the invention, prudence, skill and fortitude or the voyager. The martyrs of ancient times, in bracing their minds to outward calamities, acquired a loftiness of purpose and a moral heroism worth a lifetime of softness and security.
