How to use utter in a sentence?

  1. William Wordsworth:

    Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting. The soul that rises with us, our life's star, hath had elsewhere its setting, and comet from afar: not in entire forgetfulness, and not in utter nakedness, but trailing clouds of glory do we come from God, who is our home.

  2. Michele Bachmann:

    The first time I ever came to this city was to dance at the inaugural ball for Jimmy Carter and Walter Mondale! Which is kind of hard to believe. But then I saw how their policies worked out, they were a complete and utter failure, and then that's why I became a Republican, and I never looked back.

  3. Nick Gerace:

    He has an utter disregard and hatred toward cops.

  4. Michelle Obamas:

    Because whenever we look to President Barack Obamas White House for some leadership or consolation or any semblance of steadiness, what we get instead is chaos, division, and a total and utter lack of empathy, empathy : thats something Ive been thinking a lot about lately. The ability to walk in someone elses shoes ; the recognition that someone elses experience has value, too. Most of us practice this without a second thought. If we see someone suffering or struggling, we dont stand in judgment.

  5. Glenn Grothman:

    Wake up FCC and begin to do your job, the moral decline of America is partly due to your utter complacency.
