the thing that defines everything else. what we follow. what we do. what we should be like. something to be, something to see, something to feel. not what we are. it is something that we must model everything by. can an example ever be wrong? I don’t think so. the idea of an example is that it is the thing you are defining (good or bad). an example of a bad man is the same as a good one.

You should make an example of yourself.
Do something impossible.
Lay down your pride and take up your happiness.
I can see so many examples of love in your life.
And I can see the pressure you endure.
Make an example of yourself;
and be happy.

I tried to be a good example. Keep my head up, always look people in the eye, keep a smile on my face. But I could see that it was fading. I was becoming someone no one would want to be. I was loosing myself. I didn’t even know who I was anymore.
Finding yourself isn’t as easy as the books make it seem. And the farther from myself I became, the more I hated myself.

an example is something that one is meant to follow. basically it is just an excuse to paraphrase or slightly change what you are given to pass as something equally as original and from your own true thought, but as every single American knows this is exactly what has got us into this mess in the first place. Leading by example.

Set an example.
Be the best or worst you can be.
Make others want or not want to follow you.
Be that example.
Don’t dream it, be it.
Don’t dream it, be it.

“For example, I’ve never met anyone who made me feel as stupid as you tend to.” I could have taken it as a compliment, I guess. It was a compliment, sort of. Not that I’d meant to make him feel stupid, I just had a habit of saying the first thing that came to mind and the things I often had come to mind consisted of things he didn’t now much about. There was a lot of silence after that. And I’d look back and wonder if I did mean to make him feel stupid. Really stupid. Yeah, probably.

For example, the way I hate you and never want you back , would explain how she feels about him right now…so back off and take your friends apologies with you. There us a reason you’re my ex after all.

“It’s about setting an example for the little ones,” she said, her bronzed, bruised legs tensing for the jump. “So they know not to be afraid of anything.” And with that, she leapt over the edge of the building, almost missing the ledge of the neighbouring one.

I’m sorry, but could you give an example?
By Dana Christine URL on 03.05.2011
The pens, the papers, the desk covered in senseless words. You said it was easy but you were wrong. I can’t figure out how you put things together so easily. It takes me days of sorting and piecing together before I get it right, yet three seconds after you sit down, you’re done. I can remember a time when I seemed to have the flow in me, it spilled out of my hands onto the paper out and it was so effortlessly beautiful. Now I try too hard, like an ugly girl covered in makeup.

For example, let me give you an example. Any example. There are so many examples I could give you. Maybe I can’t even think of an example. On the other hand, there are so many examples I can think of.
By Brigid on 03.05.2011
Example. Well for one, i am a terrible example. Not just for kids, but for everyone. I fuck things up often, I’m a bitch, I do bad things. I’m a bad example.
By Courtney. URL on 03.05.2011
This is just something I’d like to share with you, a little part of me for you to view, a little part of me for you to understand. Please be careful with it, for it is a precious part of me, and one that I do not part with easily. I thank you for your kindness in holding onto it for me, for I might lose it.

Mr. O is probably the worst math teacher ive ever had. We’ll learn something new, do a few examples then move on to something else. And when we ask for more practice and example problems he tells us no, we’re not in middle school anymore.
By Katie Joan URL on 03.05.2011
An example of the word example would be an example that one could use as an example of something which is an example of every day life. For example, one could use an example for something in which they want to give an example for. Example: Eating cookies.

Examples bring to mind the hardest genre of test questions. Explain Hooke’s Law and give one example of a situation in which it should be used. Examples kill simple multiple choice, and force the return of a student’s gift from God; true or false questions. Still, they can also save; guiding a mind through the tangled hallways of calculus and trigonometry equations.
By Clara URL on 03.05.2011
fuck that means this is gonna be hard. or fuck this means they have standards that i need to meet or at least live up to… BAHAHAH
realistically examples are helpful but scary sometimes, like in spanish class when you dont even understand the examples!!
By Maddington URL on 03.05.2011
Here it is… #1, the best you could write; Look at the structure, look at the form. The words that flow and never repeat themselves. This is the Example, the ideal. Replicate and don’t deviate from what’s already been perfected.
By jenpen URL on 03.05.2011
An example is something you see on a test or in a textbook. It’s something that parents show kids to teach them the wrongs and rights of life. An example helps us explain something that others are ignorant of.
By MK on 03.05.2011
People say lead by example, I say fuck that. Everyone is in charge of themselves and responsible for their own actions. You shouldn’t have to follow someone else in order to do the right thing. Just don’t be a fuck.

An example of a runner, that’s me. example of things HE does, HE comes into your house, Makes you forget things, and makes you feel like your losing your mind.

EVeryone always want examples. Examples make everything easier. If you don’t give an example, sometimes people don’t know what you’re talking about. E.G. exemplia gratia is a fancy way to say you want examples. I think I spelled exemplia wrong. But i did take 4 years of Latin. The last year we translated the Anead or something like that.

“That’s a terrible example,” Sierra said.
Tom shrugged and held up the crooked origami crane. “Nothing in nature is perfect. If we’re trying to imitate nature, why make it unnaturally perfect?”
“That, right, there, was a perfect example of obfuscation,” Gwen said, and all three of them laughed.
This was how to spend Saturday nights.

For Example, you must follow my lead. Do as I show you. There are many ways to do this, but my way is easiest. My way or the highway. Follow my lead
By Kelsey Genoways URL on 03.05.2011
let’s make an example of you. we will watch and judge you. we will talk about you behind your back in order to make ourselves feel better. if you stumble we will laugh, and say how irresponsible you are. we will try and live our lives the opposite of yours.

The example on the white board made no sense to John. “write about something you love, such as a puppy.” But John didn’t love puppies, he in fact hated them. Ever since the one from his last birthday party had turned into a giant monster and tried to eat him.

There really couldn’t be a better example of hypocrisy than what she had demonstrated.
By A Bananie URL on 03.05.2011
i was always setting an example. keep your hair clean, your face clear, your actions innocent. i had to set an example. i was the face of the program. how many times did i hear those words? “face of the program”. i want to break away. i don’t want to belong to anybody. i want somebody to drop me off in the middle of the ocean and i’ll find my way home, even if it’s at the bottom of the ocean with the crabs and fish and seahorses.
By BRRC URL on 03.05.2011
what to write about example? well for an EXAMPLE ;), we have to set good example for our friends and our peers. if you can’t set a good example, then who is going to set an example for others? we must be the kind of person we wish to see in the world, because if we can’t accomplish that ourselves, then it is too much to ask for anyone else to do so as well. and if WE can set good examples, then others will as well.
By Monica Robinson on 03.05.2011
Example.. some much can come from an example. It can tell someone about you, your mind, how you work, think. An example is so important.. a good example portray to someone exactly what you’re trying to say.
By Ticey on 03.05.2011
an example is something shown to you. you get an idea of what you need to do. an example is something that you will do, but maybe don’t know how to do. to show you directions.
By Catherine Ryan URL on 03.05.2011
An example is everything you do
Everything you try and everything you see and re use!
Be a good example ;)
Be the best you can be!
By Moki on 03.05.2011
an example is something shown to you to let you know what the instructions or directions are. you are to follow this example and completer your task. it is something you may know how to do, or may not, and you may not always follow through.

For example, take Stu. Look at what he’s become. He’s lost control of his life. He ignores his family, his friends, his bodily hygeine, all to make chocolate pudding at 4 AM. He is spiralling deeper and deeper into a whirlpool of chocolate flavored depression.
By Cyrus Taheri URL on 03.05.2011
Set an example for others. Set a good example for your followers or people who look up to you. You never know who will be watching and will follow in your footsteps because of a event in your day. A good example is something everybody should do. Unlike others who you might know, and I know a lot of them…
there are many times we use the word example to describe what we are talking about. A lot of times people don’t know what we are saying when we try to explain somethings, so we always have to give them an “example.” Why can’t people understand without examples?
By Ashley Caston on 03.05.2011
I read the word in front of me, example. Something I should set for others, something that will leave my legacy. It is something yet to come. For good or bad who knows? Example is something set…
when i think of example i think about people being an example to me. ive had a lot of people in my life that were good and bad examples on me. but mostly good.
By lillian on 03.05.2011
as i cough up thoughts
back and forth
for example i bring wind
about how you were to me
then i whisper
about the could haves
