How to use victorian in a sentence?

  1. Lytton Strachey:

    The history of the Victorian Age will never be written we know too much about it. For ignorance is the first requisite of the historian - ignorance, which simplifies and clarifies, which selects and omits, with a placid perfection unattainable by the highest art.

  2. Josie Garrett:

    I think there is a general sense in this country, at least for me -- which is incorrect -- that infectious diseases are completely eradicated, or that we found some way to get rid of them and that they are 'Victorian' illnesses, the reality is that's just not the case. It's definitely something people need to be aware of.

  3. Daniel Andrews:

  4. Daniel Andrews:

    It is a credit to every single Victorian, ... their conviction, compassion, and an absolute determination to get this (vaccine rollout) done.

  5. Tennis Australia:

    }'A disgrace': See how some Australians are reacting to Djokovic visa row 01:42 However you might feel about the polarizing Djokovic, there's not a scenario where he ever deserved this. It's unlikely the world's No. 1 tennis player would have got on the long commercial flight to Melbourne had he not been given a green light from tournament officials. But somewhere along the way, the information pipeline involving Australian Open officials, the Victorian state government and federal authorities has become a game of broken telephone. Prime Minister Morrison insisted the buck stopped with authorities at the border, not tennis organizers.
