  1. an example of love is when a guy sees a girl as the most beautiful, the most sexy, the most perfect, the most lovely girl in the whole wide world. for example, when a guy tells a girl that she’s “good”, he doesn’t really love, he’s just into her and wants to.. well, you know. when he tells her she’s “beautiful”, he MUST mean it and be absolutely and totally sure of it. unless he’s not sincere, he shouldn’t make her believe she’s the one for he’s the one for her.

  3. and example is something that you don’t know how to explain so you put it in a different way, usually by telling a wonderful story to get your point across. for example, if I were talking to my friend and he asked me to explain irony I would say, well it’s like when you thing something is going to happen but something else does.

  4. An example of love is seeing two kids sharing an ice cream, careless and happy. it’s a guy telling a girl that she’s the most beautiful girl on earth, and he means it from the bottom of his heart. it’s a friend who stands up for his or her friend, whenever and whatever happens.

  7. Following by example is the best way to learn a new skill. There’s only so much you can do with words, which is ironic given the format in which I’m explaining this to you. Actions speak so much louder than words, and while they may not last as long, I’d rather everyone be taught to drive by their parents than the population of the world forced to learn purely by book. That would be dangerous. And the world is dangerous enough as it is.

  8. “Let’s take Mozart for example.” Marshall stated. “His use of intervals and progressions was second to none. His music transcends time, space, genres. It resonates with all.” He strode over to the piano and sat down. “Just listen to this!” He encouraged. “It’s universal.” The entire class leaned in and waited with bated breath. And then, it happened! The first note sounded! Marshall sang rapturously along. “‘Twinkle, twinkle little star. How I wonder where you are….’ See?” he turned to them. “Universal.”

  10. Example.

    “She tried to lead by example. Unfortunately, her example wasn’t a very good one.”

    “Example on a math test.”

    “Give me an example.”

  12. “We’re going to have to make an example of you,” Principal Matthews said. “Missy, you’ve been a bad girl, and you’ve raised your teddy bear up the flagpole out front of the school for the last time.”

    Missy shifted in her seat, awaiting her sentence.

    “I have no choice, but you will have detention for the next three days.”

    Defiantly, Missy stood up, stepped onto her chair, across the desk, and, using the Principal’s head as a springboard, projected herself head-first through the plate glass window with a shrill cry of “FREEEDOMMMMM!!!”

  14. “For example,” she said, “What good is living if you are not alive? Such is life, isn’t it? You must continue living to really live. Do not be afraid, do not be boring. Eat everything you can, taste the world for what it is. Take the good with the bad. Live the life you wish to live, and nothing more can be asked of you, for it is not what the world thinks in the end, but what you think. You must be happy with what ends up in your grave, for that is all you have at the end of the day.”

  16. here is an example of how i spend my saturday nights most of the time. i surround my daily life with people who just make me feel like a pile of feces. I need to change me. not for anybody but myself. I need to spend more time focusing on what I want in life, and not care about what others think. I’m going to make myself proud of me, and who i have become. I can’t wait. the only thing that gets to me is the fact that i say this to myself all the time, but i never follow through, i need help.

  20. I’ve been awake for the last 40 hours more-or-less nonstop. This is an example of an excuse I would use if I had to write a sentence for a word other than “Example.”

  21. I was the perfect example of the perfect girl. What a shallow life I lead, I wondered to myself. Nothing fulfilling happened. I didn’t help anyone and I certainly didn’t want to. It was all my fault though. I was too lazy.

    By emily on 03.05.2011

  24. GIve me one thing that explains it. Tell me one thing that could make me understand.
    I need an example, otherwise my disconnected mind can’t grasp exactly what you’re saying. It will spin a little and half of everything will click. But without you adding an example pieces will still lay loose like leftover puzzle piecces.

    By Candice URL on 03.05.2011

  25. An example is something that is set in order to be mimicked by others. It is the highest par that is to be sought after and accomplished. It is what is right and what should be followed by many.

  26. People need to be examples. Of what we want to do with this wondrous earth, what to do with this journey we call life. We need to see the truth in nature, in this thing we call our home. Be examples- save the earth.

  28. An example of my writing is the following:
    I don’t think I’m a great writer. Actually, I’m a terrible one. For my college essays, my mom had to edit and re-edit. I could never get it down by myself. When I got to college (my first choice, THANKS MOM!), I met the man of my dreams. I didn’t know this at first, and was really hesitant to start going out. But then we decided we both liked each other and now we’re dating and he’s a great writer. I love reading his examples. The end.

  29. For example, she said, whisking her hair to the side. “I say you’re an idiot. You say you’re not. This is an example of a “disagreement. As is this”
    She drew her fist back and punched him in the mouth. His tooth nicked her flesh and opened her knuckle a bit.
    That’s for yesterday, scumbag.

    To find for you
    An example

  33. Alwys see this word on written tests. “Identify, explain, and provide examples of blah blah blah blah blah”. I guess without the word we wouldn’t really be doing much ‘deeper’ thinking. At least this way we’re forced to think a little.

  34. One would assume she’d learn from all the examples in her life. All the times she took a risk and it never paid off. All the lessens never learned and all the rules bent for selfish purpose. She never figured it out and she perpetually made these mistakes for as long as she lived.

    By Sam URL on 03.05.2011

  35. Anne Frank is a terrific example of hope. She is a great inspiration to me. I know I wouldn’t have been able to greet her same situation with the same steadfast courage. that’s all.

  36. in school they’ll show you an example for a problem to help you. however, 95% of the time, the ‘examples’ don’t necessarily help you out. but sometimes they do. examples are good. yeah. they’re pretty good things usually. i’d saaaay!

    By Caity URL on 03.05.2011

  37. Here’s an example. For instance, it’s like the time when something crazy happened. Who knows. I take a look at the example on the test. I don’t get it. So I bullshit the guess. I don’t care about the grade. This is an example of a time when I should have cared. OH WELL.

  39. when i saw the word example, i thought it was going to show me an example of….something on this site. i’m not sure, but i was waiting to be shown how to do something. something new. but that’s just who i am. i wait to see how to do things. i never take charge. this site has opened my eyes to who i am after 60 seconds.

  40. To give an example to to display what you know. by being able to compare and give an ‘example’ in the first place means you somewhat know what your talking about. No wonder the phrase “for example” is so common.
